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.
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
Filming took place at the Corvin Castle in Hunedoara and in Sighisoara, Transylvania. And also at Mogosoaia Palace, near Bucharest. See more »
Romania was defeated during WWII and, following the overthrow of its monarch, experienced a decade of instability while communist forces consolidated their hold on power and fought petty squabbles among themselves. This was common news at the time and certainly would have been known by the Vatican.
Even if a priest and a novitiate had been allowed into the country, they would have received an escort by a government functionary and would not have been allowed to travel alone in the country. See more »
I went in with zero expectation after reading mixed reviews, but ended up loving it. Suspenseful story, spooky bacground music, good scares, brilliant acting and an amazing audience. (Pop corn was good too). We received pure entertainment that a horror movie can give.
