A priest with a haunted past and a novice on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate the death of a young nun in Romania and confront a malevolent force in the form of a demonic nun.
After the "Demon Nun" from The Conjuring 2 (2016) proved to be a popular horror antagonist, a spin-off focusing on the character was green-lit, making her the second character from the franchise to get her own feature after Annabelle (2014). The Crooked Man from Conjuring 2 will be the third in The Crooked Man.
What's the opposite of a miracle, Father?
In the movie, the convent is bombed by German planes. Actually, the planes should be Russian, British or American, as in WW2 Romania was on the Axis side: after the monarchy was overthrown by a fascist government in 1939, Romania joined the Nazis after invasion of the Soviet Union, and kept fighting until its occupation by the Soviet army in 1944.
