Even as I've become more or less used to how these movies and others like it work, I was immensely satisfied with "The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It" for its prevalent sense of fear and dread.

An inferior followup to the earlier Conjuring movies, this third installment does feature the Warrens again but the case is not as interesting as it sounds. Based off the media circus surrounding a murder suspect claiming demonic possession (yes true story), the movie tries to shake things up by being a trial movie with elements of a police procedural that happens to feature exorcism. That's not bad on paper but the director Michael Chaves is not capable to make it interesting. There's a noticeable reliance on jump scares and the pacing seems off. Like there's scenes cut or missing. Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson are as watchable as ever as Lorraine and Ed Warren and they still have good chemistry together. And the backstory is still pretty interesting. You just wish the movie was better.

This plays out months later when David's sister, Debbie (Sarah Catherine Hook) and boyfriend Arne (Ruairi O'Connor) are working at their own animal shelter and Arne winds up killing their shady landlord Bruno (Ronnie Gene Blevins). Arne, however, …

"I think I hurt someone."
‘The Conjuring the Devil Made Me Do It’ is by far the weakest entry in the Conjuring Cinematic Universe. James Wan, who made the previous two movies, didn’t direct this time around and instead it’s directed by Michael Chaves, who previously did ‘The Curse of Livin' La Vida Loca’, and it painfully shows.
The Conjuring movies are like ‘the big event’ of these series of movies, while the spin-offs feel like the starters you usually skip to get to the big meal. Unfortunately, this feels like one of those spin-offs.
None of the scares were effective or scary as the build-up was seriously lacking. There was no atmosphere or tension for there to be any evil presence, but instead it felt predictable. Whenever the movie tries to do a U-turn in …
