Important Aspects of the Film
- This movie is directed by Michael Chaves, this is the first time The Conjuring is not directed by James Wann (he directed the past 2 Conjuring films, the most recent Aquaman and Fast and Furious 7).
- James Wann maybe does not direct the film but he does produced it, with the help of Peter Safran.
- Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga are back to play they’re respective roles as Ed and Lorraine Warren.
- The Budget to make this film was approximately 40 million dollars.
- This film’s durability is aproximately 1 hr and 52 min.
- This film (like the past 2 Conjuring films) is based in real events that the Lorraines did investigate, some things are dramatized but, in escense, sort of the events of the film did happened in real life.
The Warren have returned to document the exorcism of David Glatzel, a small 8-year-old boy, alongside his family. Unexpectedly, Arne Johnson will become the new host of the demon that possessed David and within it he commits multiple crimes that will put Arne in a lot of trouble. Now the Warren will have to help Arne discover some dark secrets behind the curse that terrifies the Glatzel, they will meet new and creepy faces and yet they will have to prove to the world the existence of the devil.
- The only fact that some of the events here did happened in real life gave to the film the intrigue feeling that many terror films don’t. Due to this I was enjoying that much the terror here.
- Mostly of the special effects are great here, even more at the beggining with the exorcism of David Glatzel.
- The “final encounter” in this film is a Little different from the other films, this one remembered me to Stanley Kubrick’s “The Shinning” with Ed Warren being possesed and trying to kill his wife with a big hammer.
- Ed and Lorraine are pretty well played by they’re respective actors, and they are also really good characters with a lovely romantic story behind that I think it was great they finally showed us.
- The Fact that we have a villain here maybe is not bad, but it is bad that we do not know her reasons to do what she wants to, not because this is a horror film means that we do not want to know why this things are happening, or what is the point of all of these.
- The majority of the scary stuff here is based in predictable jumpscares that does not come from nothing, it’s kinda dissapointing how in the first films this was really well done, but in this one they took the easy path.
- The Arne Johnson case in the judge was a great opportunity to elevate the interesst levels of these events, but they really don’t really take advantage on this and prefered to gave us another predictable jumpscare.
Final Grade and Conclusion
This is definitely the worst film in “The Conjuring” trilogy, but it is deffinetely better tan the spin off films like “The Nun”, all the “Annabelle” films, “La Llorona”. However it is enjoyable and appropiate to have a good time watching it.
Final Grade: 6.6 out of 10
