The Conjuring universe has added its fifth and possibly its most petrifying installment yet in The Nun. After The Conjuring came out of left field and made $300 million in the box office in the summer of 2013, the franchise has birthed four installments, including The Conjuring 2, Annabelle, and Annabelle: Creation.
The film’s synopsis reads:
“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.”
Taissa Farmiga, the younger sister of The Conjuring star Vera Farmiga, will play the novitiate in the movie that was co-written by James Wan, the highly-regarded director of The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2.
The movie, which will hit theaters September 7th, has gotten its first trailer. Check it out below:
