Their eighth installment, The Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It, is all set to hit theaters in 2021 after postponement. This upcoming American supernatural horror film, directed by Michael Chaves, has been long awaited around the world. However, the fans will have to wait for a little longer.
About The Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It:
The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It is a sequel of The Conjuring (2013) and The Conjuring 2 (2016). As mentioned above, it is the eight installment of the The Conjuring franchise and the third part of the Conjuring series.
The franchise has been known for their portrayal of true horror stories. Similarly, ‘The Devil Made Me Do It’ is also grounded on true events.
The third part of The Conjuring is based on a chilling murder trial of Arne Cheyenne Johnson, that took place in Connecticut in 1981. It is said to be one of the scariest and most sensational cases dealt by Ed and Lorraine Warren.
About the trial of Arne Cheyenne Johnson:
The trial of Arne Cheyenne Johnson is popularly known as, “Devil made me do it” case. It is the first known court case in the United States, where the defense presented Johnson, the defendant, innocent as he was possessed when he committed the crime.
Arne Cheyenne Johnson killed his landlord, Alan Bono, during a heated conversation. Johnson denied any personal responsibility for the crime claiming that he was under demonic possession when it happened. The demon was said to have fled into Johnson from an eleven year old boy, David Glatzel when the priests were performing an exorcism on him.
Apparently, the judge ruled that it is infeasible as no such argument could ever be proven.
As a result, Johnson was convicted for murder. He was sentenced for 10-20 years though he only served for five years.
