Just when you thought the spooky season couldn't get scarier, Warner Bros. has treated horror fans to a sneak peak behind the scenes of the new The Conjuring universe film.
The next chapter in the film's franchise is called The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It and will see the return of Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as our favourite paranormal investigators and authors Ed and Lorraine.
It's also said to be moving away from the haunted house theme from the first two films.
The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It is the eight overall film but is the third main film following 2013's The Conjuring and 2016's The Conjuring 2.
It will follow the trial of Arne Cheyenne Johnson, a manslaughter trial that took place in 1981 Connecticut. Arne claimed he was possessed by a demon as a defence in the trial.
The official description from Warner Bros. said: "The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It reveals 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."
In the 33-minute video, we see Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga on set, with The Conjuring franchise producer James Wan as they discuss the case and the upcoming movie.
James Wan says in the video: "The Conjuring franchise has spanned from the 50s, 60s, 70s and now we're finally getting into the 80s!"
'The trial of Arne Cheyenne Johnson, this was an internationally-renowned case which was the first time in the history of law in the United States that demonic possession was used as a reason for committing manslaughter,' Vera explains in the behind-the-scenes video.
Like many films, and TV shows, this year, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It was delayed from its original September 2020 release date due to the impact of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It will be released on 4 June 2021.
