The new trailer for “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It” revisits the first murder trial in American history where somebody claimed demonic possession as the cause…
The new trailer for “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It” has arrived as ghost hunters Ed and Lorraine Warren take on one of the most infamous court cases in American history.
Based on the real life murder trial of Arne Johnson, who was the first person in history to claim not guilty by way of demonic possession, the latest film set in “The Conjuring” universe will tackle that very subject. Of course, the real trial ended with Johnson’s conviction after the presiding judge refused to allow him to use that defense and he was eventually jailed for five years on a manslaughter conviction.
The fictional version will take place in “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It” as the Warrens travel to a small town to investigate this heinous murder and the man claiming demonic possession as the culprit for killing someone.
Here’s the official synopsis for the film from Warner Bros:
“The Conjuring: 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.”
Take a look at the new trailer and get ready for “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It” in theaters and on HBO Max starting on June 4.
