The Plot of The Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It
The movie, The Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It is set in 1981. Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga play the real-life demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren. In this movie, Ed and Lorraine are consulting the Glatzel family, whose child, an evil spirit, possesses the 8-year old David Glatzel. The character of David is played Julian Hilliard, and Sara Catherine Hook plays Debbie, David’s sister.
The demon’s presence in the young boy is shown by the usual mouth foaming, contorting body scenes, and the eerie growling and crackling bones’ sounds. As one would expect, a priest is called up to heal the possessed boy, but all the chanting and sprinkling of holy water and all that is not able to free the poor boy of the devilish spirit.
The spirit even makes David jump upon Ed, giving him a heart attack. When Debbie’s boyfriend Arne, played by Ruairi O’Connor, tries to get hold of the boy, the evil spirit jumps into Arne’s body. He doesn’t even realize it for some time and leads an everyday life with Debbie in an apartment situated above a dog boarding kennel. As both David and Ed get over the shock, the devil gets the better of Arne and makes him dreadfully kill the kennel owner.
Now, it is Ed and Lorraine’s turn to convince Arne’s lawyer to plead not guilty on account of “demonic possession”. The duo then tries to back their claim by going through ancient literature and also take refuge in prayers. Finally, they find a Satanic totem beneath the house of the Glatzels, and they visit an old retired clergyman, played by John Noble, for help.
The Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It Review
Like the previous Conjuring movies, The Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It is also based on real-life events. This means that a man had actually committed murder and had claimed before the court of law that he was under a demonic spell at that time. Genuine photographs and audio are also shown in the movie.
The demon’s presence in the young boy is shown by the usual mouth foaming, contorting body scenes, and the eerie growling and crackling bones’ sounds, making this just an average horror movie. The Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It is an entertaining exorcism movie with dollops of horror and moderate spookiness.
