Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorrain Warren (Vera Farmiga) take on their most horrific case of demonic possession yet, starting with a little kid struggling for his soul. They plod their way to unearth the dark mysteries of the power behind this newest wicked strike, unlike anything they’ve ever seen before. Following that is a series of incidents linked by a demonic thread that follows the Warrens like a curse. This is the first case in American history, though it has happened before in England, that a murderer would stand trial and plead guilty to demonic possession in exchange for his innocence.

Michael Chaves, the director of The Curse of La Llorona, directs this film, which is a vast improvement over his previous effort. Despite the numerous contrivances, La Llorona was able to drown audiences in horror. Chaves has refined his method in The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It. Chaves directs a fantastic tale that is more than simply… “thud, thump, bang!” It is centered upon an intriguing case from Warren’s history. The first and second Conjuring films have a distinct aesthetic that is brought to life and guided by James Wan. They do include jump scares, but there’s a lot more to them than that. The darker cinematography and heart of this sequel help to create an aura of unfathomable dread.

The key difference in this edition is that the case is based on something considerably more twisted and unsettling than a mere possession. As the classic storyline structure finds new ways to surprise, this distinction keeps you guessing and in the dark about what’s to come. Like the previous two films, this one is clearly influenced by William Friedkin’s The Exorcist, but it goes one step farther. The explosive sequences of possession were given an updated, yet aesthetically identical impact. Near the opening, there is a long scene of sheer terror that will stun and leave you speechless, possibly more than anything else in the series thus far.

Additionally, with theatres reopening, seeing this film in a theatre with its excellent sound design is a must (if you take the necessary precautions and feel safe to do so). As the mystery unfolds, piercing noises combined with on-screen pictures add to the heart-pounding excitement. Chaves’ picture has a gravitas that surpasses the previous two, establishing it as a highlight. It’s more than simply a normal demonic case; the stakes are exceedingly high and deeply personal. Adding a new element of demonic puppetry to the mix results in a film that is less plain and more psychologically stimulating.

To be honest, it’s difficult to put into words the pure terror I felt while seeing The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It. Chaves clearly drew more of his horrific images from his short, The Maiden, and it’s evident that he’s learned from his mistakes. No matter what the general reaction to the picture is, it will undoubtedly be in your memory for a long time. That is the mark of a brilliant film, not just a terrific horror picture.
