The Conjuring universe is launching its new spin-off with Corin Hardy’s The Nun, a prequel horror about the terrifying Valak and what it’s getting up to in a Romanian monastery, and the first teaser looks great.
Hardy (The Hallow) looks to bringing the atmosphere in spades, while Taissa Farmiga and Demian Bichir are the novitiate and the padre sent to tangle with the forces of darkness. We can’t wait.
“When a young nun at a cloistered abbey in Romania takes her own life, a priest with a haunted past and a novitiate on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate. Together they uncover the order’s unholy secret. Risking not only their lives but their faith and their very souls, they confront a malevolent force in the form of the same demonic nun that first terrorized audiences in “The Conjuring 2,” as the abbey becomes a horrific battleground between the living and the damned.”
The Nun is released on 7 September. Keep up with the latest genre news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
