The terrifying demon is back.

The Conjuring films and their respective spin-offs have proven to be massive successes at the box-office and we’re eagerly anticipating the latest offering from James Wan’s horrific shared universe, The Nun.

Ever since audiences got their first glimpse at the demonic Valak in The Conjuring 2, they’ve been excited about the possibilities of this spin-off.

Truth be told, that scene where Lorraine Warren was painting and the demonic spirit of The Nun drew closer and closer was a masterclass in suspense, atmosphere, and special effects.

Well, the plot details for The Nun have been revealed and it’s clear that the director, Colin Hardy, is taking inspiration from The Exorcist.

The film centers on a young nun at a cloistered abbey in Romania that takes her own life. A priest with a haunted past and a novitiate that’s on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate. Together, they uncover the order’s unholy secret and confront a malevolent force in the form of the same demonic nun from The Conjuring 2.

There’s some bad news though because Warner Bros. has announced that The Nun’s release date has been pushed back from July 13, 2018, to September 7, 2018. To be honest, we don’t care when it’s released once it’s scary as hell!

In a previous interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the creator of this whole horrific universe, James Wan, has outlined his ghoulish vision for The Nun.

He described the film as “The Name of the Rose crossed with The Conjuring” while teasing ideas about a sequel – if the film is successful.

“I do know where potentially, if The Nun works out, where The Nun 2 could lead to and how that ties back to Lorraine’s story that we’ve set up with the first two Conjurings and make it all come all full circle,” he says.

Whatever direction these films take, we’re definitely on board for the terrifying ride.

The Nun stars Taissa Farmiga, Demian Bichir, Bonnie Aarons, Charlotte Hope, Jonas Bloquet, and Ingrid Bisu.
