SHOCK DOCS: THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT

Charged with a brutal murder, a Connecticut man claims his innocence insisting, “the devil made me do it.” For the first time in U.S. history, the existence of demonic forces is used as a defense at trial. SHOCK DOCS: THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT examines the harrowing events leading up to the murder and the astonishing court case that followed. Getting to the very heart of evil and to where the actual terror lies, the family, aided by renowned demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren, must do battle with overpowering demons. Based on the real-life inspiration for New Line Cinema’s upcoming horror film, “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It,” this terrifying documentary dives into the true story with never-before-seen interviews with the family, the Warrens, the defendant’s lawyer and local police.
