The Conjuring series is perhaps one of the few horror franchises of recent times that has managed to gain attention for its fear factor. Right from the first movie, to the Annabelle spin-off series, there has been a steady fan following for James Wan’s movies in the past decade. And now, the series is back with yet another sequel, titled The Nun. Directed by Corin Hardy, this highly-awaited horror movie is based on the demonic nun that first terrorized us in The Conjuring 2. Here’s all you need to know about the film:

Based on the order of release, The Nun is the fifth movie in the series. However, it would chronologically come first in The Conjuring franchise’s shared cinematic universe, making it a prequel to The ConjuringThe Conjuring 2Annabelle: Creation, and Annabelle.

Taissa Farmiga stars in the lead role.

After Vera Farmiga, who stars in the lead role in The Conjuring movies, her sister Taissa is all set to take the reins of the new movie. She plays Sister Irene, who is sent to the Vatican to investigate the mysterious suicidal death of a nun and finds herself terrorized by her spirit.

The plot is as terrifying as the visuals.
