Reviews: The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It (2021)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Andrea Chase @ KillerMovieReviews.com
    • Excerpt: a turgid exercise in predictability and hooey that fails even the internal logic test, but is tricked out with some nifty tracking shots and first-rate cinematography.
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: Surprisingly, director Michael Chaves…actually keeps things interesting up through Johnson’s crime only to allow the movie to nosedive once it enters territory even the Warrens would claim is fictional.
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: It may not be on par with the two previous installments of this series, but it’s still an engaging and fun horror film that is carried wonderfully by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga.
  • Sarah Gopaul @ Digital Journal
    • Excerpt: Overall, this film will still rank better than ‘The Nun’ in the series universe, but that’s not saying much.
  • Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga are great actors slumming in a so-so movie.
  • [New] | MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: As credulous — or con-artist cheaty — as its demon-hunter protagonists, but lacking their charm. Worse, it can’t even be bothered to justify and satisfy the procedural approach to its mystery.
  • Mike McGranaghan @ The Aisle Seat
    • Excerpt: Nothing about this franchise is likely to ever match the original. This is a satisfying scare show nonetheless.
  • [New] | Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment
    • Excerpt: Works as a way to move this series in a new direction, even if it comes up lacking in some areas.

    • Excerpt: ‘The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It’ is an underwhelming sequel that pales in comparison to its impressively haunting predecessors. It has its moments and tries out some new tricks but feels like a downgrade on too many fronts to ignore.
