The movie is set in 1952 Romania where a Catholic priest and a novice are sent by the Vatican to investigate a suicide committed by a nun.
In an earlier interview, The Nun director Corin Hardy said the film gave him an opportunity to incorporate classic horror imagery to tell an origin story in the Conjuring universe and he was confident that the film will take the audiences on a terrifying journey.
"I loved that The Nun is set in 1952 and in a castle in Romania - making the story feel both new and ancient. I wanted to take audiences on an unholy, terrifying journey. It gave me a real opportunity to incorporate classic horror imagery this time around. Using castles, convents, cemeteries, hanging fog, gaslight, candlelight, stained glass and gothic horror, we created a rich, contrasting and immersive cinematic atmosphere," Hardy said in a statement provided by the Warner Bros.
