Netflix released the official poster and release date for the upcoming documentary film, THE DEVIL ON TRIAL. Make sure you check out the poster below.
THE DEVIL ON TRIAL explores the first – and only – time “demonic possession” has officially been used as a defense in a U.S. murder trial. Including firsthand accounts of alleged devil possession and a shocking murder, this extraordinary story forces reflection on our fear of the unknown.
If you’re familiar with The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, the original court case is what loosely inspired that film. This documentary, according to Tudum, is the first time that those directly involved in the legal case before and after the murders have gotten to tell their stories. Not just see this case continue to inspire countless other horrors and legal dramas in media.
The documentary is written and directed by Christopher Holt (“The Hillside Strangler,” “Mind of a Monster). It is produced by Hattie Bridges-Webb, co-executive-produced by Amy Lee-Jones, and executive-produced by Julia Nottingham and Sam Starbuck.
THE DEVIL ON TRIAL premieres exclusively on Netflix on October 17, 2023.
