The Conjuring 3 Seems to Have Confirmed its Name, Plot, and Release Date
On December 8th, The Conjuring Facebook changed both their profile and banner pictures to what seems like the name of the third entry to the series. The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, coming September 2020, is what the pictures state.
A while back, James Wan confirmed that the Warrens are coming back but this time to prove a man’s innocence in The Conjuring 3. Michael Chaves will be directing the newest addition to the Conjuring Universe. Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga will be reprising their roles as the Warrens.
Wan has confirmed the film is about the ”The Devil Made Me Do It” trial. No other time in American Law history has someone tried to use the act of possession as a defense. With the defense claiming posession, the Warrens were the best fit to investigate in the trial of Arne Cheyenne Johnson.
Johnson was on trial for the stabbing death of his landlord Alan Bono. Leading up to the murder, Johnson and his girlfriend Debbie, called upon the Warrens to help with Debbie’s little brother David who they believed to be possessed. The 11-year-old said before his possession that he saw an old man and a hoofed monster at night threatening him.
During one of the exorcisms performed by the Warrens, Johnson invited the demon inside the boy to possess him. Johnson stated that sometime later the demon attacked him by causing his car to slam into a tree. This led to the moment he saw the demon in a well on his property where after looking in its eyes, became possessed.
In February of 1981, after having lunch with Alan Bono (who was drunk at the time), Johnson and Bono got into an argument. Witnesses claimed that Johnson started to “growl” before pulling out a knife and stabbing Bono five times in the chest.
After Johnson’s arrest, Lorraine Warren called the authorities to tell them that Johnson was possessed. This led to Johnson to plea innocent for the murder because a demon had control of him. The court threw out the plea citing that the petition was “irrelevant” and “unscientific”. The court ruled would be hard to prove or disprove by both the prosecution and defense. Johnson was found guilty of first-degree manslaughter and sentenced to 10-20 years in which he only served five.
Paranormal Activity 7 Release Date
According to The Wrap, Paramount CEO Jim Gianopulos announced at CineEurope that a seventh entry of Paranormal Activity is in the works. The studio will once again partner with Blumhouse, who basically figured out the ideal low-budget, high-reward formula.
The first Paranormal Activity exploded on the scene when it was released in 2009. An effective haunted house story grossed $193 million worldwide on a budget of roughly $15,000. (Still one of the biggest profit margins in movie history.) Since then, the franchise has grown, turning a simple poltergeist story into an arc about demonic possession, cults, and witchcraft. Although plot details are still being kept secret, it’ll be interesting to see where Paramount goes with the franchise.

Many fans are concerned on whether or not the newest film will follow the story of Scream 4 or be a remake.
There are also doubts over whether original characters Neve Campbell and Courteney Cox will appear in the forthcoming movie.
