. The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It Gets R Rating for “Terror, Violence and Some Disturbing Images”
‘This is the darkest Magic film, ”says director Michael Chaves. “It digs in a very dark material. This is certainly a case where there are real consequences, there are real victims. This really takes the Warrens to unknown places. As a fan of the franchise, I was really nervous at first about breaking with convention, breaking with a lot of things that are tradition, but I think what we’ve done really got the language and the things you want from a Magic movie – the horror, the warrens, their relationship – [and [pushed them] to the limit in this truly fresh and exciting new direction. “
“One of those things [series creator] James [Wan] and I connected while making The Curse of La Llorona shared many of the same favorite movies, and one of them is Se7en, ”Added Chaves. “We both love that movie, and so when he came to me with this script, he actually thought, ‘It’s Se7en, but in the Magic universe.’ And he knew that was kind of catnip to me. “
