I’ve never seen The Conjuring or any of the films in the franchise, but evidently the second film features some manner of demonic nun, and now that nun is getting her own solo feature, entitled, naturally, The Nun. And get this, according to the film’s official synopsis, it will be an origin story:
“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.”
A teaser for The Nun is cracking the internet’s knuckles today, and who knows, maybe this nun will become our generation’s Freddy Krueger or Michael Myers, with an increasingly outlandish and complicated mythology that will eventually be retconned away in a reboot 30 or 40 years from now. That’s getting a little ahead of things, though, because for now we just have this teaser:
The Nun hits theaters on September 7th, and its official site can be found right here.
