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.
Taissa Farmiga, who played Sister Irene in this film, is the younger sister of Vera Farmiga in real life, who played Lorraine Warren in The Conjuring (2013) and The Conjuring 2 (2016). The Demon Nun, played by Bonnie Aarons, also appeared in The Conjuring 2 (2016) and had a brief cameo in Annabelle: Creation (2017). Though the sisters' characters are not at all related to each other, they are both devout Catholics with clairvoyant abilities.
Whatever you do, don't stop praying.
The novice (Taissa Farmiga) has clear fingernail polish on throughout the film. A novice nun would not wear this as it would be viewed as being a "vanity."
