Right off the hook, the movie starts with an exorcism of a young David Glatzel. The possession seems to have become worse when Father Gordon arrives. Not wanting to see the young David suffers any longer, Arne invites the demon to possess him instead. Ed was on the floor, suffering from a heart attack (the demon cursed him to suffer the attack) and Lorraine was thrown across the room whilst the possession was happening, rendering the duo to be helpless to stop Arne from inviting the demon into him.

David recovers well from the possession whereas the unconscious Ed has to be rushed to the hospital for treatment. When he gains consciousness, he immediately tells Lorraine to warn the Glatzel that a tragedy will ensue soon as the demon is now inside Arne. 

Arne starts to see a lady and/ or a demon around him. Feeling unwell, he returns home and again, he sees a demon. When the demon attacks him, he defended himself by stabbing the demon non-stop, only later he found out that he had actually stabbed his landlord 22 times.

The Warrens come to his aide, trying to defend him from being tried as a murderer, when in fact he was possessed. The case becomes the first American murder trial to claim demonic possession as a defence. 

The Warrens investigate the beginning of the possession - it actually starts with David. Further into their investigation, they realised that David was cursed via a witch's totem that was placed under the Glatzel's house. In trying to understanding the curse, the duo seeks assistance from a former priest, Kastner who had dealt with the Disciples of the Ram cult.  

A similar case with 22 stab wounds later unravel and the duo decides to find the similarities or connection between the two. When the detective shows the same totem, Lorraine initiates a vision to unearth the death of the girl and to search for the murderer. She succeeds in assisting the local authorities in finding the body of the murderer. 

Later that night, she and her husband breaks into the morgue and using the murderer's corpse, she tries to find the occultist that placed the curse on the Glatzel. 

Why is the curse placed upon the Glatzel and will the duo be able to break it?

MY REVIEW

Plot: 4.8/ 5.0 I love the plot - certainly not a 'haunted house' plot. In fact, as it is based on a curse, I would say not a horror movie but still, it was quite disturbing and scary.

Was it scary? The fact that people are still practising curses nowadays makes it kinda scary to me. 

Were there a lot of jump scares scenes? Not enough to my liking. Haha.  

Cast: 4.8/ 5.0 I love the fact that the movie shows the fragile side of the duo - they are only human. I love the duo!

Will I watch it again: YES. I will watch it again after I watch the previous two again.
