Netflix has released the official trailer for the forthcoming documentary, “The Devil On Trial,” which explores the first and only time demonic possession was used as a defense in U.S. court. 

About ‘The Devil On Trial’:

Often referred to as the “Devil Made Me Do It” case, the trial of 19-year-old Arne Cheyenne Johnson quickly became the subject of lore and fascination after it made national news in 1981. 

Johnson claimed that he murdered his 40-year-old landlord, Alan Bono, while under the influence of demonic forces. 

The brutal killing in Connecticut drew the attention of self-professed demonologists and paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, known for their probe into the infamous haunting in Amityville, Long Island, several years prior. 

The Devil on Trial” recounts the troubling events leading up to Bono’s murder, the trial, and the aftermath, using firsthand accounts of the people closest to the case, including Johnson. 

Release Date:

October 17, 2023, only on Netflix
