Next month The Conjuring universe will expand with yet another terrifying spin-off, The Nun. After a direct sequel, The Conjuring 2, and a dreadful spinoff, Annabelle, and a much better spinoff sequel, Annabelle: Creation, the horror will continue by following the origins of the main antagonist (Valak, the creepy demon nun) in The Conjuring 2.
Tagged as “the darkest chapter in the Conjuring universe”, the fifth entry takes place in 1950s Romania where Father Burke and Sister Irene (played by Taissa Farmiga, the younger sister of Vera Farmiga) are tasked with investigating a suicide at a creepy convent. A recent YouTube ad or trailer for the film was recently banned from the platform after many users complained that it was “too scary”.
If you’re still brave enough to see The Nun, Empire Entertainment has partnered with Fortress of Solitude for an early screening of the film. Here is your chance to grab yourself two tickets to the event.
The Nun hits theatres on September 7th.
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 film also stars Demian Bichir, Jonas Bloquet, Charlotte Hope, and Bonnie Aarons.
