Horror fans have finally got some substantial information on Warner Bros upcoming threequel from the Conjuring Universe, officially titling the project as The Devil Made Me Do It. Moreover, the film's synopsis also teases what was in stake for The Warrens when dealing with this demonic possession based on an infamous real-life incident.
Earlier on Sunday during CCXP Brazil 2019, Warner Bros surprised attendees by not only revealing the title of 'The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It', but also sharing footage from the film as well.
The movie is based on the real-life murder trial involving Arne Cheyenne Johnson
For those unaware, the subtitle of Conjuring 3 is in fact inspired from the 1981 murder trial of Arne Cheyenne Johnson. The case became a media sensation when Johnson, charged with first-degree manslaughter for killing his landlord, Alan Bono by stabbing him to death claimed the devil made him do it.
Before the killing took place, the Warrens were involved in the exorcising of a demon inside the then 11-year-old David Glatzel. Johnson claimed during the trial that the demon had later taken possession of him and made him kill his landlord.
The case made history since the defence tried to prove his innocence on claims of having no responsibility due to his demonic possession.
