Corin Hardy is rapidly becoming the go-to director for anything horror related following the critical success of his directorial debut The Hallow. Now he’s back behind the camera for The Nun, a brand new film set within the The Conjuring universe and the brand new teaser has just been unveiled…and it will make sure skin crawl!
You have to ask yourself the question of whether your brave enough to watch this one:
When a young nun at a cloistered abbey in Romania takes her own life, Father Burke (Demián Bichir) a priest with a haunted past and Sister Irene (Taissa Farmiga) 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.
The Nun is a great new opportunity for Hardy to showcase his talent for horror cinema and from the looks of the sepia inspired teaser audiences will be in for a very creepy ride. Hardy plays off of the suspense of dark shadows and silence in the first teaser and when the teaser comes to a shocking end, well, you’ll be thoroughly creeped out!
Along with the presence of James Wan, Hardy also has a cast of great talent in front of the camera including noted screen veteran Demián Bichir and newcomers Taissa Farmiga and Jonas Bloquet. Each will have to face the dark secrets of this horrific new tale….but just whether they’ll come out of it alive remains to be seen.
On September 6 when The Nun arrives in cinemas….pray for forgiveness.
