There was a time when having a post-credits scene in a film was thought of unusual. At present, because of the success of the MCU components, it feels more odd not to have a post-credits scene in a franchise movie that units up the subsequent installment within the sequence. In an interview with NME, Michael Chaves, the director of the upcoming The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It revealed that the movie was initially imagined to characteristic a post-credits scene. However then Chaves determined it will be higher to finish the film on a particular observe as a substitute of teasing any form of a continuation.
“We truly had [a post-credits scene]. I am going to maintain it a thriller as to what it was as a result of it could type of be coming again in one other type. We had been actually proud with the ending and it felt like an actual type of finite near the story. To not say that there is not a door open for a lot of extra Warren instances and Warren adventures, however there was one thing about this that simply felt like ending a trilogy, it simply felt good and stable with this ending… I am glad that we did not put it in as a result of it does appear generally such as you’re being type of roped into the subsequent one. Regardless that I do love that as a film fan, there was one thing good about type of ending with out it.”
Sarcastically, whereas post-credits scenes can typically really feel shoehorned in unnecessarily to artificially increase a franchise, The Conjuring movies are constructed in such a way that post-credits scenes really feel pure. Every Conjuring movie offers with a brand new case investigated by psychic ghost hunters Ed and Lorraine Warren, and the tip credit scenes are a cool method to tease what case the duo would possibly take care of subsequent.
However within the case of The Conjuring: The Satan Made Me Do It, it appears Michael Chaves was extra fascinated with telling an entire story than organising future sequels. The Satan Made Me DoIt has already damaged with custom from the earlier films by transferring away from the haunted home setup that was utilized by the 2 earlier movies within the sequence.
As an alternative, the film finds Ed and Lorraine getting concerned with the trial of Arne Cheyenne Johnson, who turned the primary particular person within the historical past of the U.S. to say possession by a demonic power in his felony trial. In a earlier interview, Chaves had defined that Johnson’s case, regardless of being in contrast to something that Ed and Lorraine have encountered earlier than, has deep ties with the lore of the Conjuring universe.
“You’ve all the scares and terror that you just’d count on from a Conjuring movie however it’s set in opposition to this actually unbelievable thriller. It is a thriller that is tied into what the Conjuring universe is all about.”
Directed by Michael Chaves, The Conjuring: The Satan Made Me Do It stars Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga, Ruairi O’Connor, Sarah Catherine Hook, and Julian Hilliard. The movie arrives in theaters and on HBO Max June 4.
