The Devil on Trial: Netflix will release a documentary on the true crime case that inspired The Conjuring 3


The documentary The Devil on Trial, about the case that inspired The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, reaches Netflix in October

The Netflix streaming service has announced (via their Tudum site) that one of their upcoming releases is the documentary The Devil on Trial, which is based on the same true crime case that inspired the 2021 film The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, the third film in the Conjuring series. In fact, the image that Netflix is using to promote the documentary even features the Warrens, the paranormal investigators that are played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga in the Conjuring films! The image can be found at the bottom of the article. The release date for The Devil on Trial is right in the midst of Halloween season, on October 17th.

According to the Tudum listing, The Devil on Trial explores the first — and only — time “demonic possession” has officially been used as a defense in a US murder trial. Including firsthand accounts of alleged devil possession and a shocking murder, this extraordinary story forces reflection on our fear of the unknown.

The documentary has been directed by Peabody Award-winning and BAFTA-nominated filmmaker Chris Holt. Arne Cheyenne, who claimed that “the devil had me do it” while he was being tried for the murder of his landlord Alan Bono, is among those interviewed for the documentary. The Conjuring: the Devil Made Me do It

is a chilling story of terror, death and unknown evil. Even experienced paranormal investigators Ed & Lorraine Warren were shocked by this case. 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.Are you interested in the Arne Cheyenne Johnson case, and will you be watching the documentary
