The official synopsis for The Devil Made Me Do It is below:

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It reveals a chilling story of terror, murder and unknown evil that shocked even experienced real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. 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. Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson return to star as Lorraine and Ed Warren, under the direction of Michael Chaves ("The Curse of La Llorona"). The film also stars Ruairi O'Connor (Starz' "The Spanish Princess"), Sarah Catherine Hook (Hulu's "Monsterland") and Julian Hilliard (the series "Penny Dreadful: city of Angels" and "The Haunting of Hill House").
