Warner Bros. just released a pretty in-depth behind-the-scenes look at The Conjuring Universe, titled The Conjuring: Faith and Fear, which features more than a few tantalizing looks at the upcoming The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It. The third film to follow professional paranormal investigators Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine (Vera Farmiga) Warren will take on the real-life case of Arne Johnson, the first person to claim demonic possession as a motive for manslaughter. Yes, the below video interviews the real Arne Johnson, and yes, it’s kind’ve unnerving to watch him casually explain the time a demon made him kill somebody.
The footage from the set makes it very clear we’re headed firmly into the 1980s and the film will explore the courtroom aspects of the unusual case. “We wanted to keep our new story grounded in the feel of Conjuring movies, but we wanted to make sure we were telling a brand new story,” says producer Peter Safran. “We thought the Arne Johnson story was something that deserved a much closer look.”
