The first link of the Conjuring story has now been connected with the release of 'The Nun'. A film features the scariest character and the darkest chapter of the Conjuring universe - Valak. Calling her omnipresent wouldn't be wrong, she has walked out of the wall, spooked you from the most obscure places. Well, that's the power of Valak and the treatment given to this magnificent character by director Corin Hardy is beyond compare.

So far the series has traced the tale from 1955 to 1977 and now this link tells the story of the popular character, the nun. This instalment goes back to 1952 and is set in Romania. It begins with a Catholic priest and a novice being sent by the Vatican to investigate the mysterious suicide of a nun at the Cârța Monastery. The twist of events in this series has always been a delight to watch and so this time we expect no less from the makers of this hit series. 

The Conjuring timeline 

A devout fan of the films, and particularly the Nun character, director Corin Hardy relates, “What I loved about the Nun when I first saw her was the mystery.  There was no given explanation for her—but her look and behavior were absolutely petrifying.  She has a perfect iconic horror persona about her—the habit obstructs the face and shrouds the body and limbs to make her seem unhuman.  It’s as if she glides without her feet touching any ground.”

“The idea that something held as sacred and pure as a nun could become twisted in such an evil, supernatural way disturbs people at a very core level,” producer James Wan adds.

The wait for 'The Nun' is over and now's the time to uncover the unholy secret. The nuns set off on the investigation putting their lives on the stake to confront the demonic character. There's no way one's forgetting her as she not only played an important character but was a part of the most terrifying sequences of the 'The Conjuring 2'. The Warren's put a brave front, will you manage?
