Taking a quick glance at the new trailer, the scariest movie yet in the Conjuring trilogy could easily be the upcoming The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It.
The first trailer for The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It is pretty horrific (in a good way), to say the least, offering us our best look yet at Ed and Lorraine Warren’s most gruesome incident.
Unlike the initial two Conjuring films, the third appearance of Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as the real-life couple would not showcase them investigating a haunted house.
Rather, it includes the time they were engaged in Arne Cheyenne Johnson‘s lawsuit. In 1980, the Warrens researched the possible possession of 11-year-old David Glatzel, who was present at the exorcism.

He went on to kill his landlord but said he was possessed by a demon, which led to the Warrens’ participation in the trial.
With Wilson and Farmiga reprising their starring roles, the movie is directed by Michael Chaves, alongside James Wan, the person on the director’s chair of the last two Conjuring films, serving as the producer.
Chaves told IGN:
In a lot of ways, this is the biggest Conjuring movie. I showed the final cut to Vera and her husband and they agreed, and they were like, ‘This is the darkest Conjuring movie’.
It digs into some really dark material. This is definitely a case where there’s real consequence, there’s real victims… There’s real events and real tragedies that happen to the Warrens.
The director continued,
Something happens to Ed, to both of them, that they struggle to recover [from] and we kind of have to wonder, are they gonna be the same? After this event and even going into future movies, what will the repercussions be?
We’re not sure if this is the final Conjuring film, but Farmiga recently admitted she’d be up for doing more projects.
It’s interesting, we have to up the fear in each one. Demonology is already so high-pitched and operatic.
Wilson, meanwhile, stated they’re eager to drive these characters all the time, and there’s nothing more fun than working opposite Vera.
The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It releases on 4th June 2021.
