Horror Fans Are Freaked Out Over The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

Most horror franchises tend to run out of gas long before they reach their eighth installment, but The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It will be determined to keep up the winning streak that’s seen the expanded universe become the highest-grossing string of scary flicks in the history of cinema.

The formula has remained fresh by tasking a number of filmmakers with different styles and sensibilities to helm sequels and spinoffs tangentially connected through either demons, possession or the Warren clan. The aforementioned The Devil Made Me Do It is now streaming on HBO Max and playing in theaters everywhere, and as you can imagine, a lot of people have been rushing to check out the latest chapter in the Conjuring saga.

The third paranormal adventure for Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson’s famed investigators currently holds the lowest Rotten Tomatoes score out of the trio to date with a solid if unspectacular 61%, but audiences have pegged it at a much higher 86%. Clearly, fans are enjoying it a lot more than critics, and you can check out some of the reactions below.

The general consensus seems to be that The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It isn’t a patch on James Wan’s first two installments, but his replacement Michael Chaves still appears to have hit all the required beats in terms of atmosphere, a foreboding sense of dread and, of course, plenty of jump scares.

For the first time in a long time we could be seeing two horror titles jostling for supremacy at the box office when the dust settles at the end of the weekend, but the latest entry in Warner Bros.’ multi-billion dollar brand should realistically have enough gas in the tank to see off A Quiet Place Part II.
