Rivaling the popularity of the Annabelle doll, The Nun first terrified audiences with the release of The Conjuring 2, with many considering the character to be the film’s biggest highlight. The character’s popularity led to a spinoff titled The Nun in 2018, with Aarons reprising her role as the demonic entity. Despite a lukewarm reception from critics, the film would go on to achieve box office success, becoming the highest-grossing installment in the Conjuring universe. Now with a new chapter on the way, fans of the series can return to the heart-facing terror they have grown to love from the horror franchise.

The Nun 2 will officially be released exclusively in theaters on September 8, 2023.
