Now, when we talk about blending fact with fiction, we do not mean it in a way that the movie is simply based on a small haunting and then expanded upon in a fictionalized way. We actually mean that the stories in Conjuring are based on real instances. The Conjuring’s stories are based on the experiences of Warren and Lorraine in the 20th century as they went around handling big cases of paranormal activity and demonic possessions. It was something to behold, truly. The same has been the case with all of the Conjuring movies, which have featured real cases from the files of Warren and Lorraine. And The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It is no different. Where the last Conjuring movie left off in the 1970s, the next movie in the franchise takes us one decade further, into 1981.

This time, the story is based on a real account of demonic possession and loss of life. It is simply something that is too close to the heart of Warren and Lorraine, and the people involved in the story. It needs to be talked about, and the movie has done a great job of it here. The movie is based around the possession of 8 year old David Glatzel, a boy from Connecticut. David’s life is endangered after he gets possessed by a ghost and is taken to the priests and Warren and Lorraine to perform an exorcism on him. However, just when he is about to die as part of the exorcism, his sister’s boyfriend, Arne, steps in and offers to take the demon as a part of himself. And so, the exorcism finally succeeds and Arne gets possessed by the ghost. Some time later, in a bad incident, Arne completely loses control, blacks out, and commits the homicide of his landlord. This leads the Warrens to be convinced of his possession, and a case is fought for him in court, as he was not in control of his body during the murder.

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It is a story that is really emotional and will hit you really hard. The fact that the story is real and there was an actual loss of life there makes it all the sadder. Arne’s conviction, too, is completely real and he served 5 years in prison. That really is something to think about. The emotional weight of the story quickly takes it from another horror story to one that is downright amazing. The Conjuring action that we have come to expect from every movie is still here, with spine-chilling visuals and environments that are just above and beyond everything else. As a fan of horror movies, I truly enjoyed the movie and would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of the franchise. The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It takes the franchise a notch higher than before, and we completely welcome the change.
