James Wan just wanted to make a fun haunted house movie when he accidentally launched a 2 billion dollar cinematic universe with The Conjuring in the summer of 2013. Wan is a modern horror master. Saw, Insidious, and the entire Conjuring Cinematic Universe are all his spawn. His creative spark has begotten us 8 CCU films in less than 8 years. Here we have the 3rd mainline Conjuring film starring the pillars of the CCU, Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as the real-life paranormal investigators, Ed and Lorraine Warren. What has the CCU accomplished and where does it go from here? How has its factory model of filmmaking suppressed or supported creativity within the horror genre?

Join us as we trace the life of The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It from conception (a very real murder blamed on the devil) to production (Wan passing baton to Chaves) to release (covid pushed to day and date release) to reception (give the people what they want)
