The Nun is a horror movie in theaters this weekend. It is a spin off of a spin off of a spin off. Allow me to explain...
The Conjuring is a movie from 2013 about a team of spirit hunters/exorcists who were charged with a cleaning a house of evil. They take a memento from each case and store them all in a single room of their office. One of those mementos is a creepy doll, Annabelle. Two movies based on that creepy doll have been made in 2014 and 2017 respectively. Now, we have The Nun which takes place within the same "Conjuring Universe"
The first two Conjuring movies were incredible. I was pleasantly surprised. I've never seen Annabelle. I've heard the two films are pretty run of the mill, so I haven't really checked them out. But The Nun looks VERY good. I'm really excited for this.
The video above is four minutes long. And explains the timeline and origins of The Conjuring Universe.
If you're looking to binge/stream these movies to catch up, The Conjuring is on Netflix. Cineman subscribers can stream the second Annabelle movie. Everything else, you'll have to pony up some cash to rent.
