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.
12 years after the tragic death of their little girl, a dollmaker and his wife welcome a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home, where they soon become the target of the dollmaker's possessed creation, Annabelle.
A prequel set before the haunting of the Lambert family that reveals how gifted psychic Elise Rainier reluctantly agrees to use her ability to contact the dead in order to help a teenage girl who has been targeted by a dangerous supernatural entity.
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.Written by
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 »
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
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.
