The Nun 2 has already been released in theaters worldwide and has proven to live up to the Conjuring franchise it belongs to. In just a few days, it has become the highest-grossing horror release of 2023 and promises to continue increasing its box office earnings in the coming weeks.
Nevertheless, the movie has received mixed reviews, and it’s true that some believe it doesn’t deliver the same level of fear as others in the franchise. Therefore, if you haven’t had enough of nun-related horror, you have another release this year that you shouldn’t miss and that promises to be much more terrifying: Sister Death.
On October 5th, a new nun comes to terrorize us
“Sister Death” will arrive on Netflix on October 27th, but on October 5th, it will open the Sitges Film Festival, which runs until October 15th in the Catalan city. But what exactly is this film about? What we can tell you is that it’s a prequel to “Veronica,” the 2017 film by Paco Plaza that gained popularity. Here’s the synopsis:
In post-war Spain, Narcisa (Aria Bedmar), a young novice with supernatural powers, begins working as a teacher in an old convent, now a school for girls. As the days go by, the strange events and increasingly unsettling situations that torment her will lead her to unravel the web of secrets surrounding the convent and lurking around its inhabitants.
During the Sitges presentation, the director made it clear that this is a film that will surprise everyone and that it can undoubtedly continue to make an impact, just as he did with “REC” in its time: “It’s a very special movie for me in many ways, an expansion of the Veronica universe, with which it has many connections, but it is a film with its own nature and very different from its predecessor, a film with a dark luminosity around a character very dear to me.”
