James Wan has passed the baton to Michael Chaves (The Curse of La Llorona) with this one, which has Ed and Lorraine Warren helping to prove a murder was provoked by a demon.
In the previously released first clip from The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, Lorraine uses her gift as a medium to relive someone else’s murder that took place deep in the woods. In the fresher footage, we get to see a full-blown exorcism that’s got all the back-breaking contortions of The Exorcism of Emily Rose; another clip catches a teen on the side of the road completely covered in blood; and the last piece of fresh footage puts the Warrens in front of the defense, pushing the acceptance of the Devil. You can check out all four clips below.
“The Devil Made Me Do It reveals a chilling story of terror, murder and unknown evil that shocked even experienced real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. One of the most sensational cases from their files, it starts with a fight for the soul of a young boy, then takes them beyond anything they’d ever seen before, to mark the first time in U.S. history that a murder suspect would claim demonic possession as a defense.”
Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga return to star as Ed and Lorraine Warren, and the film also stars Ruairi O’Connor, Sarah Catherine Hook, and Julian Hilliard.
