It´s confirmed, there will be a new “The Conjuring” movie, it will be released in 2020 and the writers took the story of Arne Cheyenne Johnson for the movie.
The cases that the Warren solved throughout their lives have opened a new door for the spooky genre in the film industry. After having two successful parts, “The Conjuring” is ready to return with a third film that will be released in 2020.
Warner Bros. Pictures has confirmed through its social networks the title of the next The Conjuring movie: “The Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It”
The film is based on the case of Arne Cheyenne Johnson, which attracted a lot of media attention, as it turned out to be the only case in which the defendant used the claim of demonic possession to prove his innocence.
The episode began on July 3, 1980, when David Glatzel was 11, complained of seeing an old man whose appearance was monstrous. Glatzel’s family had recently moved to their new home and they felt that David was inventing things to avoid housework to clean his new home.
However, as the days went by, David’s behavior began to get worse. That’s when David’s sister, Debbie, decided to seek help from her fiance, Arne. While the family waited for things to improve, it began to get worse.
David’s condition continued to worsen and he soon began to see the “old man” even during the day. The family realized that David also had several marks on his body that had no explanation.
The family also began to experience paranormal activity, such as noise coming from the attic, things that fell without explanation and other unusual situations. At the same time, David’s behavior was not improving. He began to whistle his family members, spoke in different languages that he or his family had not known. Fearful of their son, the Glatzel family decided that each night one of the family members would stay up all night because David’s nightmares had worsened.
Feeling helpless, the Glatzel family decided to seek help from Ed and Lorraine, since the couple was the last option for the family.
“While Ed was interviewing the boy, I saw a black and misty form next to him, which told me that we were dealing with something of a negative nature” said Lorraine at the time.
Without wasting time, it was clear to Ed and Lorraine that David was possessed. The couple quickly decided to perform an exorcism.
Four priests were called to help the couple and it is believed that three exorcisms were realized to free David from the 43 demons that lived within him.
While things seemed to be going well during the ritual, Arne (fiance of his sister) made the bad decision to make fun of demons and make fun of them for being unable to enter him. While the ritual was successful for David, Ed and Lorraine had their suspicions and warned the authorities to keep an eye open for Arne.
Over the course of a couple of years, David was taken to a psychologist but they saw nothing out of the ordinary. During this period, David’s sister, Debbie and Arne moved to an apartment they rented from a man named Alan Bono.
Things seemed to go normally for the couple until Debbie noticed some of the unusual behavior changes in Arne, which she had previously seen in David. Arne began to see the old man, in the same way David saw him. Soon, Arne, who was known as a good and hardworking man, began to get into a lot of trouble. While it may not seem like a big deal to some, for Debbie it was an Arne side she had never seen.
Let’s move on to February 16, 1981. That day, Arne finished his work earlier and decided to spend the rest of the day with Debbie and her sisters who were in town. While everyone was having fun together, Bono decided to invite them to eat. While everything seemed to be going well, things began to take a different turn, as an argument broke between Arne and Bono. While it isn´t known what the argument really was, Arne’s behavior during this argument closely resembled David’s possession.
Arne ended up taking Bono’s life in a fierce way …
The case was taken to court and Martin Minnella was the Arne’s lawyer. Martin had discovered that previously there were two cases in Britain where lawyers had thought to prove a person’s innocence by claiming they were possessed. While it may seem like a topic of great debate, the court quickly dismissed these claims, as there was no evidence to prove this point.
Seeing that this technique failed, Martin decided to use self-defense as his argument for the case. Unfortunately, he didn’t leave a mark on the jury and Arne was given a sentence of 10 to 20 years, although he only turned five.
It is worth mentioning that The Warren testified in Johnson’s defense. Throughout this time, Debbie did not leave his side and, after his release, they got married. To date, the couple is still together and the incident is a thing of the past for them.
