Kierre's Review of The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It 2021 ★★★½


Watched Jun 05, 2021

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It is the 3rd installment of the The Conjuring series about two Paranormal Investigators, and real life husband and wife, Ed and Lorraine Warren. In this film, Ed and Lorraine are performing an exorcism of a boy who is being possessed by a demon. However to demon is then transferred to another young man who ends of murdering his landlord and claims "the devil made me do it".

The case was a real case back in 1981, and since these films are "based on a true story" I tend to always look up the real details after watching the film. With that said, I did enjoy this film but felt it was a slight drop off from the first two films of this series. Most of what I didn't like about the film was that there is a more human element to the possessions in this film which is different from the first two films. Also I didn't really find this film to be all that scary. It was enjoyable but hardly ever scary in my opinion. When I went back to research the case, I found that the sub-story that I had the most issue with was also completely made up. Meaning this story was even more fabricated from the first two films, of course if you believe the Warrens in the first place. I also felt the film may have been different because James Wan didn't direct this one either. Overall a good film but not as good as the first two.
