Trivia

Principal photography for the film began on May 3, 2017 at Castel Film Studios in Bucharest, Romania, with Maxime Alexandre serving as cinematographer. Scenes were filmed in the Palace of the Parliament building in June, for a fee of EUR5,000 per hour. See more »

Goofs

When Father Burke and Sister Irene arrive at the house of Maurice, you can see a white light switch on the outer wall of the house. This is highly unlikely because houses in most villages in Romania in 1952 did not have electricity and relied on petrol lamps. National electrification of villages began in the '60s. See more »

I found it be very similar to Dark Waters (1993). This film too boasts of awesome cinematography n spooky atmosphere n
25 November 2018 | by Fella_shibbySee all my reviews

I gave an 8 for this reason only. In my review of Dark Waters n A Cure for Wellness, I mentioned that cinematography n atmosphere ain't enuff to save a bad film but this film ain't bad. It is well acted n directed n unlike the other two this wasn't boring at all. Compared to the recent pg13 horror films by Warner Bros, this film has a little blood but the only bothering trend continuing in all these films (Insidious, Conjuring, Annabelle 2 n this film) is the lack of kills. Nobody seems to die in these films apart from Annabelle 1. People r thrown away, people r pushed against walls n pillars but they seem to survive. Of course, this film has some offscreen kills n this is one of the reason y its different from the above films. The priest scene with the hat n bag was also similar to The Exorcist. In the future I hope they show some good amount of blood n on screen kills in such films.
