“When a young nun in a cloistered abbey in Romania takes her own life, the Vatican sends a priest (Damian Bichir) with a tormented past and a novitiate (Taissa Farmiga) on the threshold of his perpetual vows to investigate. the impious secret of the order, risking not only their lives but also their faith and their own souls, they face a malevolent force when the abbey becomes a terrible battlefield between the living and the condemned. ”

The Nun takes place in 1952, when a Catholic priest and a rookie are sent by the Vatican to investigate the mysterious suicide of a nun in the Carta Monastery. The film is a story of origin for the recurring villain of The Conjuring Universe, the terrifying Valak nun. And from the images shown in the film, The Nun is improving a bit when it comes to the fear factor because Valak looks even more intense than ever.
Conjuration films each take place in 1971 and 1977, respectively. Annabelle’s films are a little more scattered: the first in 1955 and the second in 1970, but The Nun goes back more back than any other movie of the universe shared so far. David F. Sandberg has talked about working on the timeline established above and enjoys the fact that everyone is united. As for the future, The Nun is more than likely to establish The Conjuring 3, planting even deeper seeds.
The Nun arrives on theaters on September 7 and stars Demian Bichir as Father Burke, Taissa Farmiga as Sister Irene, Jonas Bloquet as local villager Frenchie, Charlotte Hope as Sister Victoria Abbey, Ingrid Bisu as Sister Oana and Bonnie Aarons as Valak. The film is directed by Corin Hardy from a script by Gary Dauberman and James Wan. You can see the new featurette of The Nun below.
Launched here on September 7 (almost the same date as last year), it seems that The Nun is already one of the most talked about horror movies of the year, and that’s before anyone has seen it. .
Some of the ads in the movie had to be taken from YouTube because they were too scary, and if that excites you, you’ll be happy to know that we actually have a draw for the Irish premiere of the movie, and you can enter that. here.
We have already discussed how The Conjuring has managed to do one thing that almost no other horror movie has ever done, and with the successful spin-off series Annabelle, The Nun is the next sidequel based on the horror universe. .
As the release of The Nun draws ever closer, the people behind it are pumping more and more into the mythology of the series (there are THREE more Conjuring universe movies in the pipeline to think about), so They have launched a new featurette that will delve into how the lady of evil habit relates to the two Conjuring movies we’ve seen before.
When it comes to horror, the old adage ‘fact is sometimes stranger than fiction’ tends to stand out, and in the case of the new movie, The Nun, it’s no different.
The newest – and darkest – chapter in the Conjuration universe is set before Annabelle: Creation, Annabelle, Conjuration and Spell 2, telling the story behind the demon Valak, we take a brief look at Annabelle.
Director Corin Hardy describes The Nun as “more of an adventure mystery” than a total horror, but that may be hard to remember when you face the demonic face of the demon Valak.
While you would think that the demonic scares and disturbing scenes were only for the camera, it turns out that behind the scenes things were just as terrifying.
The Nun, Hardy’s second film after his directorial debut with The Hollow in 2015, takes us back in time, when a young nun in a cloistered abbey in Romania takes her own life.
A priest with his own tormented past and a novitiate on the threshold of his perpetual vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate.
Together, they discover the impious secret of the order, risking everything when they face a malevolent force in the form of the demonic nun.
Screenwriter Gary Dauberman said that Dracula of Bram Stoker by Francis Ford Coppola was an important visual and tonal reference for The Nun. It’s a fair comparison, since much of the filming was done in vampiric Romania in order to capture the right mood. While the film is set in 1952, many stages were based on 14th century buildings
Taissa Farmiga, who plays Sister Irene, said that it helped him to enter the character. “With the castles, the cloisters and the rolling countryside, it does not feel like you’re in modern times, it feels like you’re transported in time,” he said. “It feels like a demon could be around the corner.”
The possibility is key here, as the established team experienced their own supernatural disturbances, those that did not take over the special effects or Hardy, who was known to growl and create the demonic sounds themselves to help the actors imagine the horrors .
Ghostly meetings and blessing of the whole Making sure they took all precautions, the team was blessed with the production of an Eastern Orthodox priest, Father Cosmin, at Castle Corvin.
But despite this, Hardy and the crew discovered some strange things.
Hardy found a mysterious “handprint” in the dust of one of the sets of Corvin’s castle, and then something more strange happened.
While filming a particularly atmospheric scene in an old Romanesque fortress in Mogoşoaia, Hardy had a supernatural encounter with what he believes was a pair of ghosts of Romanian soldiers.
Most people would be terrified by that encounter, but Hardy believed they were only “curious about the shoot.”
It may sound strange, but others reported seeing ghostly soldiers, or the army, in Romania.
Elsewhere, the Banffy Castle, nicknamed “the Versailles of Transylvania”, have reported ghosts.
The legend says that there were often sinister shadows that seemed to be soldiers, while others heard strange noises, moans, sounds of footsteps or indistinct voices.
Then, in the forest of Călugăreasca, it is said that the last monk killed by the Turkish army cursed them so that, after death, the spirits of those who had contaminated their hands with the blood of the monks returned to the bushes, from where they never found the way out.
FacebookRedditTwitterShare This September, the new spin-off The Nun, by director Corin Hardy, will hit theaters. It stars Demián Bichir as Father Burke and Taissa Farmiga as a character known only as Sister Irene. This new film centers around the titular sister, a demon wearing pods named Valak, wreaking havoc in a Romanian monastery in 1952.
Recently, we have received a trio of new images from the film and I thought we would include them in this article as well. Two come to us through Empire, with one showing Father Burke, played by Demián Bichir, being prey, and the other presenting Valak in all his nightmarish glory. And the other comes through EW and introduces the new leader, Taissa Farmiga, face to face (a little) with the evil Nun. You can check all three below.
But that’s not what we’re here to talk about today. No, today we would like to take this opportunity to also present a theory in which we have been working here at Dread Central. This theory raises the idea that the main actress of The Nun, Taissa Farmiga, will perform a younger version of her daughter Vera Farmiga’s film, The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2, Lorraine Warren.
I mean, The Nun takes place in 1952. The Conjuring took place in 1971. That’s only a difference of 9 years. And guess the age difference between Taissa and Vera Farmiga? 22 years … But still, they could overcome that age gap in the movies. In addition, the chronology makes sense for the real age of Lorraine Warren, who was born in 1927, which would put her in 25 in 1952, which is when The Nun takes place. And Taissa Farmiga is currently 23 years old.
The only problem with this theory is that Lorraine Warren is based, of course, on a real person, and take so many liberties to say that the real Lorraine Warren is really the character of Sister Irene of Taissa Farmiga, with no basis in reality , is a bit a stretch in screenwriters James Wan and Gary Dauberman. But I’m thinking that Wan and Dauberman are not worried about playing with the book. After all, The Nun is (above all) a complete fabrication in itself. The entity within your Valak is based on a real demon, but the Nun is made.
The character made her first appearance in the sequel to James Wan, The Conjuring 2, and on a quick side note, she has an interesting story about her inclusion. It turns out that she was never part of the original script, or hell, even the first original cut of the movie. But rather it was added in relatively a last minute due to some disappointing test detection scores. In the end, the character worked as gangbusters and now here we have The Nun.
Returning to the theory in question, is the theme of the name of the young Farminga in this new film. She is credited as Sister Irene, who is not even close to Lorena or Warren. But still, obviously, her last name would not be Warren if she had not yet met her future husband Ed Warren (but I think a young Ed will make a cameo in this new movie). And her first name could be Lorraine, she simply uses her maiden name “Irene”. Lorraine Warren’s maiden name was not Irene, but rather Moran, so this is not related. But still. This theory is really just a stretch, since we are really here debating whether Wan and Dauberman will break or not the true angle of life with this new movie.
Personally, I think they will. The series has really been moving away more and more from the real events as it goes. And if we learned something of all the recent demands that affect the franchise (and others like Friday the 13th and The Grudge), then perhaps they know that the smart decision would be to begin to distance themselves from real events and real people as much as possible . But Lorraine Warren may be easier to adapt. After all, she seemed to be a great help to the production team of the first film and I can only imagine that she gave her the blessing of doubling and breaking events to her sensitivity to make the most terrifying movies she could (without a game of words) conjure.
Will this theory prove to be legitimate once The Nun opens? There is only one way to find out. And I do not know about you, but I plan to be there opening night just to see what is what.
The Nun is directed by Corin Hardy (The Hallow) from a screenplay by James Wan and Gary Dauberman (Annabelle, Annabelle: Creation) and stars Demian Bichir, Taissa Farmiga, Bonnie Aarons, Jonas Bloquet, Charlotte Hope and Ingrid Bisu. He was rated R for “terror, violence and disturbing / bloody images” and opens on September 7.
