Does the decision to move out of haunted houses and instead focus on a possessed person help or hurt this film? Does Michael Chaves ably take over from James Wan? And just how much do we love Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga as Ed and Lorraine Warren? Join us in the boardroom to get in on the conversation!

"I think I hurt someone.”

Ed and Lorraine Warren have their ghost-fighting hats back on in The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, the third film in the Conjuring films and eighth in The Conjuring Universe. Andy Nelson’s here to discuss it with Pete Wright, Tommy Metz III, and guest Justin Harlan from Cinapse and The Farsighted. Does this entry fit well into the franchise? Why did James Wan not direct it but turn it over to Michael Chaves instead? And what do we think of that decision? How do we feel about them taking the story out of a haunted house to focus on a possessed person instead? What about the integration of CG effects with the practical effects? And is our villain the creep we needed? Tune in to join the conversation!
