Movie The Devil Made Me Do It: The Conjuring-3 Has All The Scares, But A Weaker Storyline!

The third installment of the much-celebrated ‘The Conjuring series’ and the eighth film of the Conjuring Universe Horror Franchise-The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It-was made ready for release in September 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic delayed it till June 2021 when it was released in the US and on HBO Max simultaneously. Unfortunately, it could not be released in the Indian theatres again thanks to the pandemic. Since the HBO Max show-term was very short the Indian fans of the franchise have been wondering where to watch the movie, considering the way they were thrilled and intrigued by the haunted-house stories of The Conjuring (2013) and The Conjuring-2 (2016) with the adored real-life pair of the paranormal investigators Ed Warren and Lorraine Warren, played brilliantly by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga in all of the flicks of the trilogy and in one of the Conjuring Universe franchise movies. Finally. Amazon Prime Video started streaming this movie from the 15th of December 2021, and the horror ‘fun’ has come roaring back in India.

As usual, the story of this film too is based on a real-life court case in 1981 where the murder accused, Arne Johnson, pleaded not guilty under the guise that ‘The Devil Made Him Do It’ as he claimed he was demonically possessed while committing the act; this kind of defense plea is for the first time in the US court case history. Ed and Lorraine Warren testified for Arne as they were convinced about the demonic possession and gave all their evidence in terms of captured camera images and videos. However, since such a premise could never have a legal basis, the accused was convicted and sentenced to 15-20 years of imprisonment; but he got out of jail in five years due to his exemplary behavior and that he married his girlfriend while still in jail. Dry court proceedings can never be an apt subject for a suspense-horror flick and therefore, a thrilling storyline and a script was built around the case.

The film opens with the scariest scene of the movie and perhaps one of the scariest scenes ever in horror cinema history. The scene depicts the exorcism of a little boy, maybe around 10 years of age, named David Glatzel with the presence of the stricken family, Ed and Lorraine and the exorcist. The chaotically horrifying developments that follow had better be watched than explained, with the results that Ed gets hurt and has a heart attack while the character of Arne Johnson (played by Ruairi O’Connor), boyfriend of David’s elder sister Debbie Glatzel (played by Sarah Catherine), looks into the eyes of the violent David and invites the demon to leave David and possess him, which, incredibly enough, happens. To my experience of horror films this is a new twist as it raises some questions: it seems to make the role of the exorcists rather dubious and that a demon or a ghost supposedly possesses someone with a definite purpose and so, why should it leave its prized victim! Anyway, this was necessary as a prologue for the reel-life Arne Johnson to go on to murder someone and face trial.

As compared to the earlier absolutely absorbing and tension-filled two films of the trilogy the third one lacks a flow of storytelling which is hampered by flashbacks, jerk-cuts and scenes left half-treated, jumping to other scenes and then coming back to the former. This can be interpreted as the stylistic treatment of the director, but it does not help storytelling keeping in mind the viewers’ continued involvement. For example, Ed Warren who suffered a heart attack probably rested for about a month (not clearly indicated) during which the demon in Arne preferred to do nothing atrocious. However, the moment Ed recovers with a telepathic dream he communicates to Lorraine to warn the police about an impending tragedy in the house of Arne’s employer and landlord. And inevitably, Arne in a sudden burst of possessive fit murders the landlord and is arrested by the police.

Now comes the real turning point of the story: Lorraine, with her super intuitive and psychic powers visualizes a grim connection of the Arne’s act with the murder and suicide of two young girls in the recent days. The police were yet to find the body of second girl who supposedly killed her friend in a fit of the same kind of demonic possession and then committed suicide. So, for the first time in the history of the trilogy the police join the investigations with the paranormal help of Ed and Lorraine, ultimately finding the submerged body of the second girl as Lorraine leads them through a dramatically crafted and a light-n-shadow scene, eminently worth watching.

With the ‘connection’ confirmed, Lorraine and Ed revisit the house of David, and Lorraine discovers a witch’s totem in the underground chambers of the house, filled with rats. The angle of the occult practices come in here, again for the first time, and Lorraine, convinced that the connection works both ways and it is in the process of completing a curse implying more murders, starts the hunt for the source of the evil-if it was an evil spirit or a devilish human being with supernatural powers should be avoided here, lest it becomes a spoiler. While the first half of the film is very engaging and tension-filled the second half becomes rather predictable. The climax, unfortunately, fails to shock-thrill the viewers.

But the film is immensely worth watching thanks to the intense performances, as usual, of the couple, Wilson and Farmiga, and also the jump-scares that come when not expected and do not come when expected, keeping the viewers guessing, particularly a scarily delightful scene of David jumping on a bubbling mattress as if filled with water and then something unexpected happening to him. The sequel, different from the other two as mentioned above, reminds us of a brilliant South Korean horror-mystery-suspense flick ‘The Wailing’ of which we wrote about recently.

‘The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It’ is not directed by James Wan who created the Conjuring Universe horror franchise with his Atomic Monster Productions and New Line Cinema of Warner Bros Entertainment thus completing the 20-year efforts led by Tony DeRosa-Grund and his team to make a series of films on the supernatural case files of Ed and Lorraine Warren, and directing the first movie of the franchise ‘The Conjuring’ in 2013. Huge commercial success of the first venture led to productions of supernatural horror sequels and prequels one after the other: Annabelle in 2014, The Conjuring-2 in 2016, Annabelle Creation in 2017, The Nun in 2018, The Curse of La Llorona in 2019, Annabelle Comes Home in 2019 and The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It in 2021; the last is directed by Michael Chaves who made his directorial debut with a franchise film, ‘The Curse of La Llorona’. The Conjuring Universe has become the second highest-grossing horror franchise in Hollywood history and one of the most critically acclaimed. Almost all of the eight films have been huge commercial hits the world over with positive to mixed reviews. The franchise is at the moment working on two more horror films-the first being titled ‘The Crooked Man’ and the second film’s title, reported to be a sequel to ‘The Nun’, is to be announced.

Are You Choosing the Right Stock Market Advisory Company

What do you do if you want to learn driving a car? You will try to find an expert teacher, isn’t it? You do not want to avail the services of a novice individual to help you out, but a professional person can provide you the vital tips and most importantly guide you efficiently. Similarly, when it comes to investing in the stock market for the first time, you require a knowledgeable advice to attain your financial goals and get profitable returns.

If you are a beginner, then it is quite obvious that you may be having no information about the process of buying the right shares in the market. In such a situation, getting the right tips from an experienced financial advisor or a registered advisory company will truly prove to be a great blessing in disguise. However, there are some of the important things that have to be kept in mind while choosing the top stock market advisory company, which are as follows:

How much assistance do you actually require?

Before you make up your mind to hire an advisor, it is imperative that you must first decide about the kind of service you require from them. You may need their help at the beginning or during the time of any issues. This is because an advisor has to formulate a map according to your requirements. Hence, it is suggested to ascertain your needs first and then take further action.

Choose a top ranked advisory company

It is a very important point that has to be taken into the consideration. Availing services of the well known advisory company or a financial advisor is an absolute necessity. Make it a point to carry out a proper background or research work about the company. Check out their credentials, reputation, experience, etc before hiring them.

Asking for a sample financial plan initially makes sense

When hiring a financial advisor, then do not forget to ask for sample plan first. It is imperative to note that there is no such thing called the perfect plan. A sample plan will help you to determine whether an advisory company is actually making sense according your requirements or not.


The financial planners or advisory companies can really turn out to be the greatest asset for you if you choose the best one. They are just like the professional sailors who can help you out to sail through stock investment related problems quite efficiently.

Give a Chance to Binary Options Trading This Season

Binary options trading has a lot of rumors and controversy around it, but it is, in fact an easier and enjoyable form of trading. Especially if a person is new to the world of trading, as this is easy to understand. In binary options trading, a trader bets on stock and either earns money if it matches within a certain amount of time or loses it. That is why it’s a risky but equally exciting way of earning money. There are just two options of ‘yes’ or ‘no,’ hence the name binary.

If the stock price does not fall on the correct side of the strike price within the expired time and date, then the trader loses the money. But if it does fall on the correct side, the trader gets a profit.

For example, if a stock is trading at $60, the binary option has a strike price of $65 and expires at 12 pm the next day. The trader can buy the option for $50. If, after the expired time, the money goes above $65, say at $100, then the trader gets a profit of $50 (100 – 50). But if the money falls below $65, that is, it’s out of money, then the trader suffers a loss. Either way, it is good for practicing day trading as it helps in building an accurate intuition.

Another important part of binary options trading can ensure that the trader is not getting into any scam sites. This is because there have been cases of the trading system being rigged and the company profiting from all the activities. That is why a binary options broker is essential for the trading to be legit. Brokers help manage the amount, and they also do not take any commission for a trade that ended in a draw. Brokers are necessary for any trading because whatever profit the trader earns from trading will be their own wealth. There are no cuts from the amount, except for the commission the broker gets. But the majority of the amount goes to the individual.

Here are some of the benefits of having a brokerage account and a stockbroker:

· Trade with many companies – The person can place their options on any stocks that the broker has access to. And this may be every company listed in the New York stock exchange or Nasdaq stock market.

· Individual and independent trading – With brokers, an individual has direct access to the foreign exchange in stocks. That gives the independence to invest in international stocks and decide the stock selection.

· One-time money management – Many brokers understand the importance of other investments like bonds, mutual funds, and bank account products. Hence the broker lets the trader get a single environment that can take care of all this, letting the person have a simplified path to money management and not have accounts spread out for different investments.

· Customer service – Brokers also give financial advice that goes beyond finance or trading. Every broker has a different form of service, but working with a broker will also help get different resources for better managing the finances.

An ideal broker has many features that can be attractive depending on the facilities. Like the forex brokers. We offer an attractive number of options for both binary trading and day trading. The Forex education can also help in getting you educated on the basics of trading. And the binary options brokers can help you get the most profit from the trading. Do check us out. We will not disappoint!
