Your mission, should you choose to accept it – experience the most action-packed collection ever!

The Nun

SYNOPSIS: 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.

SPECIAL FEATURES
•A New Horror Icon
•Gruesome Planet
•The Conjuring Chronology
•Over 10 minutes of deleted scenes

Fan of The Conjuring movies should relish this return to the terrifying universe. The Nun may be a tad silly at times, in the form of some unintentional comedy, but is held together remarkably well thanks to some atmospheric dread, plenty of jump scares, an effective period setting, and strong work from Demián Bichir and Taissa Farmiga.
