The movie will take inspiration from the real-life case of Arne Cheyenne Johnson. His case achieved infamy as the first instance where demonic possession was used as reasoning behind manslaughter. I guess that explains the new subtitle The Devil Made Me Do It.
“In a lot of ways, this is the biggest Conjuring movie,” Chaves tells IGN. “I showed the final cut to [star] Vera [Farmiga] 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."
If you count both Annabelle movies, The Nun and The Curse of La Llorona (which Chaves also helmed), The Devil Made Me Do It is actually the seventh installment in the series, but the filmmaker promises that this will be unlike anything that's come before.
“This is really taking the Warrens into uncharted places,” says Chaves. “Being a fan of the franchise, I was honestly really nervous at first breaking with convention, breaking with a lot of things that are tradition, but I think that what we've done is really woven the language and the things that you do want from a Conjuring film - the scares, the Warrens, their relationship - [and [pushed them] to the limits in this really fresh and exciting new direction.”
I recognize the name Arne. This case (I think the Warrens were con artists for the record) was made into a tv movie in the early 80s, on CBS I think.
The Demon Murder Case. I remember it was the talk of the school bus for the next two days. I only saw it the once. I don't remember much about the movie other than it involved a posessed boy and the image of an empty rocking chair rocking by itself (and I think the boy also sitting in the rocker staring into space) and the whole movie seemed set at sundown but I know those sundown scenes are jystvwhat left an impression on me. It scared me back then.

Looks like the same old thing to me. Vera Farmiga plays dress up in a silly blouse while people say ridiculous things dead seriously and jump scares abound. For all the talk of it being something we've 'never seen before' it seems like we have and that the people that are really into these movies will like it and those that are sick of them will not.
