"The Devil on Trial" is a gripping documentary that delves into the 1981 trial of Arne Cheyenne Johnson, focusing on the defense's claim that the homicide was a result of demonic possession. The film provides a compelling account of the events, including the alleged possession of a young boy and an exorcism conducted by Ed and Lorraine Warren. However, the documentary has faced criticism for its lack of reportorial integrity, using dramatized re-enactments and heavily filtered photographs. Despite attempts to present a credible story, the film has been accused of prioritizing shock value over intellectual discourse, resulting in polarized reception. Rated TV-MA for disturbing imagery and violence, with a runtime of 1 hour 21 minutes, "The Devil on Trial" is available for viewing on Netflix.
