'The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It' Will Haunt Your Blu-Ray Player In August

Ghost hunting husband and wife Ed and Lorraine Warren are coming home this August. The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, the third entry in the main Conjuring franchise, has set a home media release, with the film hitting digital in July before coming to Blu-ray and 4K in August. Based on a true story (sort of), The Devil Made Me Do It has the Warrens leaving haunted houses behind and dealing with curses and a murder mystery.

I'm a sucker for The Conjuring franchise, especially the main films featuring Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as Ed and Lorraine Warren. So I suppose I had high hopes for the latest entry, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It. While the end result wasn't as good as the previous two main Conjuring films, the performances of Wilson and Farmiga, and the ongoing love story between their characters, helped elevate the material. As I wrote in my review:

Having the Warrens snooping around like Mulder and Scully and pitting them against a human villain turns The Devil Made Me Do It into a kind of mystery movie; a ghostly detective story, even. This could've gotten real silly real fast, but by now, you're either on board with the Warrens or you're not. It's easy to buy into the paranormal investigators turning into amateur detectives because Wilson and Farmiga are so damn good at playing these roles. They feed off each other's chemistry, and it's a treat to watch them work. Farmiga in particular continues to shine here, managing to sell corny lines with gusto. And the ongoing love story between the two characters remains the glue holding all of this together.

Now, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It is headed to home media.
