The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

Filled with just as much devotion as dread, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It is ultimately a film about paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren’s undying love for one another. Played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, respectively, the couple’s chemistry remains the strongest throughline of the franchise, as the third installment’s tale of ancient evil takes a backseat to the Warrens’ own origin story. Even with director Michael Chaves replacing original series director James Wan, The Devil Made Me Do It, like its two predecessors, begins by alternating between jump scares and jams before unearthing the history of those aiming to cause harm. Based on the real-life murder of Alan Bono and billed as one of the “most sensational cases” from their files, the possession of a young boy ends up leading the Warrens to their most formidable opponent yet, which tests whether love can conquer all.
