‘The Conjuring 3’ Gets Official Title

Warner Bros. has officially announced the title for The Conjuring 3. This time around, they are going the subtitle route. Calling the film The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It.

The franchise has proven to be incredibly profitable for Warner Bros. The original film did so well, it spun off its own “universe”. Resulting in one sequel to the original, three Annabelle spin-offs, a film focusing on the Nun from The Conjuring 2, and another spin-off called The Curse of La Llorona. There was even talks about a movie centering on The Crooked Man from The Conjuring 2. Although that hasn’t really blossomed into anything yet. But hey, The Nun is getting a sequel with Luke Cage writer Akela Cooper penning the script.

Plot Synopsis:

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.

While it hasn’t officially been said by Warner Bros. yet, the title The Devil Made Me Do It pretty much confirms that the third film in the series will have something to do with the trial of Arne Cheyenne Johnson. Johnson brutally stabbed his landlord to death back in 1981. Known for being the first murder in the history of Brookfield, Connecticut. This was the first known court case in the United States where the defense sought to prove innocence based upon the defendant’s claim of demonic possession. Eventually becoming known as the “Devil Made Me Do It” trial.

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It hits theaters September 2020.

I know I’m intrigued by this story. What do you guys think? Interested in seeing this at all?
