The third in The Conjuring series, this one a prequel to the sequel starring Vera Farmiga’s younger sister, Taissa, 21 years younger. 1952 Romanian Abbey is possessed…a priest, a novitiate & young man go to help. The movie is sufficiently creepy and better than expected. B+
When a young nun at a cloistered abbey in Romania takes her own life, a priest with a haunted past and a novitiate on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate. Together they uncover the order’s unholy secret. Risking not only their lives but their faith and their very souls, they confront a malevolent force in the form of the same demonic nun that first terrorized audiences in “The Conjuring 2,” as the abbey becomes a horrific battleground between the living and the damned.
