A priest with a haunted past and a novice on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate the death of a young nun in Romania and confront a malevolent force in the form of a demonic nun.
Danny McBride said that this film was originally going to be filmed into two back-to-back movies but decided to scale back and leave it with one film. "We were like, 'Let's learn from this, and see what works, and what doesn't.'" explained McBride. "But we definitely have an idea of where we would go (with) this branch of the story and hopefully we get a chance to do it." McBride still has hope that he will move forward with his planned sequel.

Near the end of the film the two police officers guarding Laurie's house are requesting backup after finding a murdered police man (= the doctor) near the police vehicle, which stopped a short distance from them. After the climax, with Laurie's house now on fire, Laurie, her daughter and her granddaughter hitch a ride on a pick up truck, yet backup is nowhere to be seen. See more »
[about Laurie and Michael]
I would suspect the notion of being a predator or the fear of becoming prey keeps both of them alive.

As a filmmaker, I never post reviews nor have ever involved myself with anything on IMDB. But I will say this. I saw the world premiere last night at TIFF... it was fantastic. Genre, horror and halloween fans will love it. Being a huge Halloween fan myself, I was immensely happy to see how well they respected the source material and the characters. Fantastic job to the entire team on this film. It deserves all the praise. Go see it as soon as it comes out. Myers is back. Deadly, brooding, and real. Jamie leads the drama to all new levels.
