Warner Bros. recently dropped the first full-length trailer for the upcoming horror film from The Conjuring franchise. The third instalment starring Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga back as real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren follow a real-life murder trial of Arne Johnson. Titled The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do, the film is set to release on June 4, 2021.
The film follows Ed and Lorraine Warren as they sought to prove the innocence of the first person who claims demonic possession while pleading not guilty in court. Johnson was accused of killing his landlord, Alan Bono, in Connecticut back in 1981.
In the trailer, Ed can be seen saying that while the court acknowledges the existence of God, it should also accept the existence of the Devil and Satan. The clip gives a glimpse of several spine chilling events including murder and unknown evil that shocked the Warrens, despite their long history with paranormal investigations.
