Conjuring: The Covenant is a downloadable 3rd person shooter video game developed by The NPD Group. The game takes place in the same universe as The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2 and is based on the movie of the same name.
A year or so ago, the marketing term “couch co-op” was making its rounds. This term refers to the ability of a game to be played by two players on the same couch, and it was used to describe games like Outland , Brothers and Sisters , and the previously mentioned Brothers in Arms : Hell’s Highway .
FILM REVIEW – The film follows James Wan’s style of the first Among the Demons without creating its own identity.
Having entrusted his protégés with the spin-offs of the franchise he created, James Wan leaves the direction of Confuse to Michael Chaves, who is content to play the role of producer and co-writer. Chavez, who directed one of the worst parts of Conjunction, The Curse of the White Lady, did not inspire confidence, although the case he was adapted to promised a potential update to the formula. Enchantment 3: Under the Devil’s Influence – the big horror movie of the summer of 2021?
Speak of the Devil
At some point, the franchise had to deal with the history surrounding the Warrens, a source of fascination for many Americans. In 1981, Arne Cheyenne Johnson murdered his landlord. During his trial, he claimed to be possessed by demons – the first case in the United States that has not escaped media attention. By choosing this part of the career of a pair of self-proclaimed demonologists, the writers of Spell 3 seem to want to take the saga out of sheer formalism, out of the traditional haunted house story that proved limited in the second part of the Enfield case. In addition to allowing for the expansion of the universe developed thus far, Arne Johnson’s case promises to finally subject reconstructed events to critical analysis. In fact, it perfectly complements Warren’s list of accomplishments, as it also crystallizes the modalities of American entertainment being forced to reconcile religious faith and permanent spectacle. Since Wang has always put technique over content with obvious skill, this was the perfect time to address these issues (for now, he’s paradoxically sticking to writing).
Is the devil (un)legitimate?
And the film doesn’t shy away from that. The entire first act of the film is dedicated to exposing an ambitious problem that runs through the film and was presented at length during its promotion: How can one legally prove the existence of the devil when the American legal system institutionally recognizes the Catholic faith? Or how does the Johnson case condense Uncle Sam’s ideological contradictions? Despite some formal nuances, the opening minutes reveal a thematic richness that differs from the first two operas, especially as the decision to weaken one of the two opposing forces affirms the humanity of the stupa’s couple, turned superhero duo. But once the process begins, all hell breaks loose. The script dodges the question it’s been asking all along with a simple reference gag to invent a new typical antagonist and completely gloss over the legal and media implications of the case.
The usual suspects
Spell 3 delivers on its promise, but throws out its old scarecrows without bothering to make them even more menacing than usual. Once the first third is over, the film enters a tunnel of terrifying platitudes. The film shifts its premise to an alternate setup and squanders what little narrative ammunition it has with suicidal acting choices and overtly mythological set-pieces, culminating in a climax that recycles the worst of Wonder Woman (yes, it’s true), including the sepia-tinted flashbacks. Either because the conclusions of the actual trial are only marginally consistent with the saga, or because New Line and Warner specs don’t want to derail their golden goose, The Devil Made Me Do It (true original title!) is ultimately not about the devil or coercion, but rather predictable jumps and cheap curses.
Which makes it all the more unfortunate that Chavez is not James Wan. And if the latter himself, with his co-writer David Leslie Johnson, scrapped the screenplay to rely exclusively on famous horror scenes, the screenwriter of Curse of the White Lady struggles to imitate his mentor’s style. All that remains of Spell 3 is a series of supposedly awful episodes that follow each other at such a metronomic pace that you’d swear they were orchestrated by an algorithm. Fortunately, the director can count on Michael Burgess, an actor who has had success with photography. Her work has already won Annabelle awards: House of Evil from the other Saga clones, but in this third opus he has outdone himself, taking advantage of the fact that he has finally left the house to add a whole palette of nuances to the traditional chiaroscuro that license holds dear. This was necessary to compensate for the lack of relief of a director who, crushed by the weight of a great first film, tries in vain to pay homage to the work of his author. Wang’s direction seemed easy to copy, but it does not tolerate being reduced to fashionable academism, especially when its playfulness is only partially reproduced and is itself laced with intrusive insertions. While the first few minutes of Enchantment 2 took us into tunnels of fear with long takes that left us with no respite, Enchantment 3 can’t help but multiply the counter shots in the most stressful situations. It’s an unfortunate pursuit of a reactionary setting, as it detracts from the best effects and makes the numerous jumps during the event, artificially enhanced by an increasingly raucous sound mix, just a little more predictable. After seven films, the ad nauseum repeated tricks inevitably lose their impact, and the visual traps set by the director are too clumsy to fool the audience they are used to. Chavez is so aware of this that he awkwardly tries to compensate for the weakness of certain scenes with a rather novel and sometimes amusing play of one-on-one references. The distraction works every now and then.
The Exorcist is here…
The quote from The Exorcist is not so much a blasphemy as a wink, as the sequence that follows is undoubtedly the most striking of the film. This adds spectacle to the sacrilege that characterizes the genre. As for the supposed inspiration of Jane Doe’s Identity, it was inevitable, as Andre Øvredal’s very likeable spirit will likely influence horror cinema for years to come. For it is when he calls for lighter references that the film’s academism becomes most apparent. So the repetition of one of the most iconic scenes from Freddy’s Nightmare only underscores the poverty of the attempted homage. Renny Harlin’s completely deranged cult scene wasn’t just creepy_face.JPEG and lazy jumping. He did his best to surprise the audience. To surprise her.

Ultimately, Conjecture 3 reflects the weaknesses of the wave of horror films of which it should have been the culmination. By basing themselves on the same mythological, in this case theological ideas, without having the courage to question them, they ended up defining themselves solely by their stereotypes. And when meaning disappears, is sacrificed to form, all that is left is a prefabricated framework into which the films slide as if by themselves, nipping all logic in the bud….. and all fear. The cowardice of a feature script that completely misses the mark goes hand in hand with the monotony of structure and effects. To create new sources of terror (e.g. Satanism), one must know how to explore its limits and consequences. And that’s where this third opus fails. He clashes several times with Warren’s Catholic dogma (the exposition, the former priest character, the mirroring of their past personalities, Ed’s planned conversion) but never strays far from it. Thus these dogmas become archetypes whose absurdity ultimately provokes more hilarity than astonishment.
Motion picture manufactured in the United States
All the virtues of Enchantment 3, led by the always impeccable performance of the lead duo, become worthless the moment the Warrens become a commercial excuse. Which is why this universe is so struggling to update its bestiary, still struggling, in the midst of makeup, barely used for jump shots and the anecdotal final boss. The climax itself, ultra-realistic on paper, uses all the same techniques and proves once again that blindly following a franchise, even without delivering on its promises, only leads to disappointment but probably also to a lot of green dollars. Because it’s still an American-made film, and as the real Warren knew all too well, tired media biblical subtexts often work. -Zardoz- FILM REVIEW – The film is reminiscent of James Wan’s style in the first Among the Demons, without creating its own identity.
