Here comes The Nun

Here comes The Nun

As the fearsome film comes to Sky Cinema, we investigate the wider Conjuring universe

When The Nun was first being promoted, a five-second jump-scare teaser clip was released on YouTube. Viewers complained about how scary the advert was and it was pulled. Consider yourself warned…

The Nun, available from Friday 21 June in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert 15. Also available in HD

“They have a superhero universe, why can’t we do that in the horror world?” This is one of the questions that occurred to James Wan, co-writer and producer of The Nun, very early on. Wan, who has stuck his fingers in lots of petrifying pies, including the Saw and Insidious franchises, is who we have to thank for all the nightmares.


“If I could pull off an Avengers of the Conjuring universe, I would love for that to happen,” Wan told Digital Spy. “We’ll see. It could be fun.” So far, he has more than succeeded – there are seven films in the universe to date and The Conjuring 3 is already in the works for 2020, as well as The Nun 2, with The Crooked Man (a creepy character from The Conjuring 2) also a possibility.

So let’s begin... before The Conjuring, there was Annabelle, and before Annabelle, there was The Nun, but that’s timeline wise, not film release date-wise, just to confuse things. To make things easier to stomach, we’ve conjured up our investigation graphic for all you need to know about the universe, no matter what order you watch the films in.
