After its release in the US, the movie received a lot of appreciation for the casting and the direction. The Project Manager and freelance writer of New York Times’, Lena Wilson appreciated the movie and says, "by far the most well-constructed, terrifying entry in the franchise. It is an excellently spooky work of fiction. It would be even better if it privileged ghoulishness over the gospel." She further said that “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It”, "relies all too heavily on that same bizarre evangelism."
“The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It” was earlier slated to be released in September 2020, but had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic but has finally been made it to Indian theatres in many languages.
