The first trailer for the seventh film in The Conjuring franchise has been released, and it promises satanism and a witch’s curse, features a killer waterbed, and ends with a full-on cliffhanger.

The first Conjuring film hit cinemas in 2013, grossed more than $300m worldwide, and spawned a series of sequels and spin-offs. The direct sequels followed the exploits of real-life ghostbusters Ed and Lorraine Warren – played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga respectively – while the off-shoots revolved around a nun and a terrifying doll called Anabelle.

James Wan helmed the first two Conjuring movies, but this third entry finds Michael Chaves (The Curse of La Llorna) directing from a script by Conjuring 2 scribe David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, with the official synopsis as follows:

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 defence.

Ruairi O’Conner, Sarah Catherine Hook and Julian Hilliard co-star, with the film hitting UK screens on 28th May, and debuting in U.S. theaters on 4th July via HBO Max
