The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me TAKE ACTION will again center around a chilling story of terror, murder and unknown evil that shocked experienced real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren even. Probably the most sensational cases from their files, it starts with a fight for the soul of a boy, then takes them beyond anything they’d seen before ever, to mark the 1st time in U.S. history a murder suspect would claim demonic possession as a defense.
The threequel sees the return of Patrick Vera and Wilson Farmiga as Ed and Lorraine Warren, who appeared in 2019’s Annabelle RETURNS recently. The film stars Ruairi O’Connor, Sarah Catherine Hook, and Julian Hilliard.
