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.

When Ed Warren (Patrick Wilson) has a heart attack, Loraine (Vera Farmiga) instructs someone to call 911. Considering they were in Brookville, Conn, it is unlikely 911 services were available to such a rural area at that time. Chicago suburbs finally got access to 911 in 1981 (the same year the movie took place). Moreover, at that time not even 50 percent of the U.S.A. had access to 911 services and those areas were only urban and suburban. See more »

User Reviews

Just Ok. More story than scares and lack of suspense.
28 May 2021 | by med-01081See all my reviews

I was looking forward to this film and the dreaded suspense and scares that this franchise has mastered over the years and was left disappointed. What we got was more story of the Warren's and their battle against evil and the played out snapping body part movements that the Japanese mastered 20 years ago. The first two conjuring films had suspense and scares galore where you would almost hide from the anticipation of what is coming but on this occasion i found it a bit lacking. It is still worth a watch and the story is decent i just expected a lot more from what has been some of the best modern horror films to date.
