Bathsheba Sherman is the main antagonist of 2013 horror film The Conjuring. She is the demonic spirit of a demonic worshipper who lived in the 1800s.

Despite being a female, she was portrayed by Joseph Bishara, who also played the Lipstick-Face Demon in Insidious, and the demon in the prequel film Annabelle.

What Makes Her Pure Evil?

  • When she was still alive, she attempted to sacrifice her newborn child as an offering to the Devil.
  • She hung herself, proclaiming her love of the Devil and cursing anyone who set foot in her house, becoming a poltergeist.
  • For more than a century, she would possess the mothers of any families who moved into her home, having them kill their families before forcing them to commit suicide. The spirits of her victims would be forced to live in the house in constant fear and torment.
  • When the Perron family moves into her house, upon seeing that their family dog could sense her presence and refused to set foot in the house, killed the dog.
  • For several nights, she would psychologically torment the Perrons such as removing all the furniture and cryptically having all the clocks stop at 3:07. She would later terrify and attempt to attack the children of the family.
  • When the Warrens arrive at the house and begin investigating, she becomes enraged at their interference and collaborates with Annabelle the Doll to try and kill their daughter, Judy, all while psychologically tormenting her.
  • Possesses Carolyn and has her drive her two children, Christine and April, back to the house to kill them both with a pair of scissors.
  • Prevents Carolyn from leaving the house by causing her searing pain and burning her body.
  • Rabidly attacks Roger, Ed and the other police officer, biting the flesh off of the police officer.
  • Maniacally laughs while taunting Roger that her wife is already gone and that his family will all die, before nearly killing Ed with a telekinetically-controlled shotgun.
  • When learning of April's location, she goes and attempts to kill her once again with a pair of scissors, utterly terrifying the helpless April.
