After Annabelle (2014) and its sequel Annabelle: Creation (2017), this year we’ll get on our screens the first title of the second series of spin-offs from The Conjuring universe: The Nun (2018). The character of this demon nun appeared for the first time in the movie The Conjuring 2 (2016), and the fans reception was so enthusiastic about the character that the producers decided the evil entity must have its own movie. Something similar to what has happened with The Crooked Man, another character that appeared in that same movie and will also have an upcoming feature film of its own, still waiting to get into production.
The screenplay for The Nun (2018) was written by Gary Dauberman from a story of his own and James Wan’s. Dauberman is a man used to sordid creatures of demonic forces, since he’s been the author or co-author of the screenplays of other movies of the same kind like Swamp Devil (2008), Wolves at the Door (2016), the horror blockbuster hit of the decade It (2017) and its upcoming sequel It: Chapter Two (2019), as well as the two Annabelle movies. The directional duties recalled on Corin Hardy, a prolific horror and fantasy short films director whose debut and only feature film to date has been The Hallow (2015).
In The Nun (2018), 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 as the abbey becomes a horrific battleground between the living and the damned.
Taissa Farmiga, Bonnie Aarons, Charlotte Hope, Demián Bichir, Lili Bordán, Jonny Coyne, Sandra Rosko, Ingrid Bisu, August Maturo, Mark Steger, Emma Appleton, Scarlett Hicks and Sandra Teles form the main cast. The movie was shot entirely in Romania with an international cast and crew. It will open worldwide the 6th of September (except for France and Italy that they will have to wait until the end of that month). Check out here the first teaser trailer for The Nun (2018):
