The Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It Review – This might not outperform its previous chapters but does justice to the premise
A sort of scarceness in exhilarations prevailed as The Conjuring 2 was released. Significantly, with its auxiliary installments of sinister-bounded investigations of Ed and Lorraine like Annabelle not living up to expectations, the graph that the first installment achieved found an adverse fall. The dramatic play among the Conjurers - our Warren couple, ghosts, and victims inside mansions, might have let the intensity decline. Well, this should have urged the makers of ‘The Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It’ to break the prototypes and spearhead out of the box. This one is a loud change from its previous installments.
This time, the paranormal investigators - The Warren Couple (Patrick Wilson & Vera Farmiga) are not just casting away the ghost but set out to curb down something, which is costing the lives of innocents.
The film opens with the Warren couple performing an exorcism at Glatzel’s family, where the young boy David Glatzel (Julian Hilliard) is being haunted by a soul. As the couple and the family members fight, Arne (Ruairi O’Connor ), boyfriend of David’s elder sister Debbie (Sarah Catherine Hook) commits a blunder of interacting with the evil soul, pleading it to leave the young poor boy alone and take him instead. What follows next Arne murdering in town and is sentenced Death Penalty. Now, it’s up to the Warren Couple to embark on a critical journey in breaking the mystery and save his life.
This movie is a decent attempt by the makers, and director Michael Chaves has set up the premise perfectly. Despite the story refraining from showing up regular 'Conjuring ingredients, we get toasted with a pretty decent bunch of Goosebumps, shivers, and chills. The first 11 minutes give an impact of watching a climax. The scene involving the investigation of Vera Farmiga inside the woods is yet another highlight. We might get a little disappointed with the screen presence of Patrick Wilson, for his character lacks prominence when compared to Vera Farmiga. Still, his chemistry with Vera is more than enough to convince the audience. Eugenie pulls out a laudable performance. Although her portions majorly comprise her appearance and disappearance, she throws up the thrills and chills.
The cinematography is appreciable when compared to other technical aspects.
Overall, The Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It might not be a cherry-pick for its diehard fans for it lets the routine exorcist exercises vanish into thin air, but still, the way this new premise keeps us engrossed for the thrills and chills here and there.
