People all over the world have loved James Wan’s The Conjuring movies. James Wan has impressed everyone with his work throughout Hollywood and has proved his versatility in many genres (Furious 7, upcoming Aquaman) and has become the king of horror, thriller movies (the conjuring, insidious chapter). Now he will be writing the upcoming ‘the conjuring’ spinoff – THE NUN along with Gary Dauberman (Annabelle, IT), which will be directed by Corin Hardy [The hollow (2015)].
The Nun was a very influential and a horrific character in ‘The Conjuring 2’ played by Bonnie Aarons. Aarons’ performance was so impactful that it really terrified people to death! Her performance and the character was loved by the general viewers as well as the critics. This impressive performance caused the character itself getting its own spinoff movie.
The Film was shot in the deepest darkest Romania, up in Transylvania and it is set up in the year 1952, which is a time where big castles and graveyards still existed in many parts of the world. The movie has been really hyped about and a lot is expected from it after the horrifying debut, the Nun made in The Conjuring 2. It has not been very big upon marketing until now, as we finally have the first trailer of the movie. Here, have a look:
In the movie, Oscar-nominated actor Demian Bichir grabbed a lead role, as he plays a priest named Father Bruke and along with him, Taissa Farmiga plays a Nun in training. These two individuals are hired by the Vatican to have a look at the shadowy things happening in an abbey and to “investigate the mysterious death of a Nun at the Cârța Monastery.” The movie pursues a battle between the good and the evil, and religion plays a huge role in the movie because Holy and unholy things would definitely come into play.
The trailer gave us only a little glimpse at what we could really expect from the film. The movie went through a lot of practically shot sequences and it did not rely on alt of special effects as most horror movies are in the present day. Being a prequel story to The Conjuring and Annabelle series, it promises the same level of horror that the two Conjuring movies have given us.
A lot of the movie has been shot in the real castles, graveyards, forests, and abbeys so that the real, creepy and darker feelings could be utilized to the fullest. The female lead of the movie, Taissa Farmiga is actually the younger sister of Vera Farmiga who plays Loraine Warren in the two Conjuring movies who got cast in the movie as she was literally perfect for the role, and we can totally see that in the trailer.
This was a really small trailer, but it actually gave us a look at the tone this movie is going to adopt keeping us on the edge of our seats, our pulse ticking and the suspense on throughout the film. It took inspiration from what James Wan has done, and the classical best, The Exorcist. Both the Conjuring movies have been a success on the Box Office and even the two Annabelle movies have also done really well, so this movie would be no different.
If the movie does play well with the critics and if it does manage to be as good as the Conjuring movies on the part of the thrill that it provides, there is no stopping this movie from beating all of the previous Horror films that have come out till now. Being set up in an older world almost 70 years from now will really help the movie feel terrifying in the best way possible, and Director Corin Hardy has taken full advantage of that.
James Wan, the King of Horror had something really interesting to say about the film and its director. Here’s what he said:
“I love Corin. That guy is amazing. I put Corin in the same camp as David. You know, like, really young, hungry, upcoming filmmakers, full of passion for the genre. Corin is such a monster movie-nut and I just love the guy’s passion. All these up-and-coming filmmakers remind me of what I was when I started with Saw. That’s the kind of filmmakers I would love to continue to foster through Atomic Monster. So, I’m very excited for what Corin has done with The Nun, and right now we’re in post-production, putting the film together.”
So it is safe to say that the film has been in great hands, and it also includes an evergreen cast with Taissa Farmiga, Demian Bichir, Charlotte Hope, Ingrid Bisu, Jonas Bloquet, and Bonnie Aarons being among them. The movie comes out on September 7, 2018.
