Conjuring 3 Updates: Is the storey told by David Glatzel in The Conjuring true? Some, including his family, have considered the narrative a fraud.
Many others, including David Glatzel, have termed the demon possession claim in The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It a fraud. The film’s main narrative was not centred on David Glatzel’s possession tale, although it did lead to it. The major narrative revolved around Arne Johnson, who believed that a demonic curse compelled him to kill. It all began when Arne assisted in the exorcism of David Glatzel, the younger brother of his fiancée.
Ed and Lorrain Warren fight to exorcise an evil demon from little David’s body. Arne allowed the spirit to leave David and take possession of him instead, in order to save the kid. As a result, he faces a murder charge, claiming that the demon that possessed him drove him to perform the act. The film is a dramatised retelling of a true storey, with some elements of fiction thrown in for good measure. The Glatzel section of the narrative is based on real-life stories by Arne Johnson and the Warrens, as well as a recording allegedly containing the audio of the genuine exorcism.
Conjuring 3: Details
Though the Warrens, Debbie Glatzel, and Arne Johnson maintain the events happened, David Glatzel’s brother, Carl Glatzel, claims the narrative was made up. Carl and David sued her in 2006, claiming that the book based on the events, The Devil in Connecticut, was a breach of their privacy and caused ’emotional pain.’ Carl later explained that David’s troubles were not supernatural, but rather stemmed from his mental health concerns.
Carl charged Ed and Lorraine Warren with exploiting his family’s circumstances, which they regarded as a “money mine.” Lorraine retorted that it was Carl who was attempting to benefit from his case. Gerald Brittle, the book’s author, stated in defence of Lorraine that he created the book using approved statements and anecdotes from the Glatzel family, for which the publisher paid $2,000. Carl Sr., David’s father, however, denied informing Brittle of David’s possession. Despite the fact that the case was eventually dropped, the book was nonetheless taken from the shelves.
David Glatzel, on the other hand, has stayed out of the spotlight since the events in Conjuring 3. Carl has disclosed that, despite having a difficult time dealing with all of the attention, David’s mental health has subsequently improved. Carl’s character is absent during the exorcism sequence in Conjuring 3, most likely due to his dissatisfaction with the plot.
