The original “The Conjuring” was scary as hell. Claps in hidden rooms terrified me. As the franchise continues and claims that it is based on ‘real accounts’ the more I call bullshit. The Warrens were not accurate when it comes to the terms of actual REALITY. It is similar to trusting in a telepathic. I do not believe in ghosts or other worldly creatures, but I do not push my luck either. “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It” makes me want to push my luck because it is so moronic that I would welcome dumb ass spirits into my house who suck as this film showcases.
We begin with a ridiculous knock-off of “The Exorcist” with the Warrens (Patrick Wilson & Vera Farmiga) called to a house where a young boy is ‘possessed’. The older brother played by Ruairi O’Connor demands the demon takes him, because that is how demonic possession works I suppose. Big bro Artie is taken over and ready to kill. Down goes a landscaper co-worker drunk who is trying to hit on Artie’s girlfriend. That brings the Warrens back into the picture.
A court case is presented and Artis is facing the death penalty. Argument against is demonic possession. Not the easiest thing for a judge to agree with. From there the Warrens discover a ‘witches totem’ underneath the house of the previous family they were investigating. There is also a demonic monster coming out of a water bed, but let us move along. The shining moment comes when legendary character actor John Noble shows up as Kaster, a farm hand who somehow knows his stuff when it boils down to demonic possession. Guy has books for days on the subject and Elizabeth does not trust this man.
From there I will leave you to it, and will only wish you good luck…
Admittedly, I am not a horror movie person. But a good one is a good one. I am not a fan of pieces of shit cinema .That is what “The Conjuring:The Devil Made Me Do It” is. From conceptually to cinematically, this is awful on so many levels. And the worst part, it is one of those films that knows it is crap yet says screw you to the audience because you’re going to pay. Go away “The Conjuring” series. Go away go away go away….

The SUCK FACTOR, how it works. We have flipped the rating system upside down. If a film is a classic it gets 0 sucks. If a film is complete trash, such as a Michael Bay movie, you receive a straight 7 SUCKS!
