Sister Death: Nun shall pass with this new Netflix horror movie (trailer).

SFcrowsnest chums, prepare yourselves for a delightful shiver down the spine with the upcoming supernatural horror film, “Sister Death” (or “Hermana Muerte” for those flaunting their Spanish flair). Crafted by the adept hands of director Paco Plaza and writer Jorge Guerricaechevarría, the film stars the captivating Aria Bedmar and serves as a chilling prequel to the 2017 film “Verónica”.

Set against the somber backdrop of post-Civil War Spain, we meet Narcisa, a novice nun blessed — or perhaps cursed — with supernatural gifts. Our young protagonist joins a school to teach little girls, but this is no ordinary school. Once a convent, this eerie establishment harbours dark secrets that are just itching to be unveiled.

As days morph into nights, Narcisa, portrayed by the stellar Bedmar, finds herself ensnared in a tapestry of increasingly disturbing events and peculiar situations that would make even the bravest souls quiver. Each dawn brings a fresh torment for our heroine, leading her to untangle a dreadful skein of secrets that cloak the convent and cast shadows over its inhabitants.

But fret not, for Narcisa isn’t alone in this dance of dread. The film boasts a splendid cast with Almudena Amor as Hermana Socorro, Maru Valdivielso as Hermana Julia, and other talented actors like Luisa Merelas, Chelo Vivares, Consuelo Trujillo, Sara Roch, Olimpia Roch, Adriana Camarena, Marina Delgado, and Claudia Fernández Arroyo, all delivering performances that promise to keep you on the edge of your seat.

Filming unfolded in the enchanting Valencia region, with the Monastery of Sant Jeroni de Cotalba providing a haunting backdrop that’s practically dripping with history and mystery. The production, meticulously overseen by Enrique López Lavigne, Pablo Cruz, and Diego Suarez Chialvo, with Daniel F. Abelló handling cinematography, Laia Ateca managing art direction, and Alberto Álvarez supervising production, promises a visual treat steeped in horror and suspense.

Now, for the pièce de résistance: “Sister Death” is set to premiere at the 56th Sitges Film Festival on 5 October 2023. And for those who prefer the cozy confines of their homes, Netflix will graciously bring the horror to your living room screens on 27 October 2023. Perfect timing for a Halloween fright-night, wouldn’t you agree?

So, have we tickled your fancy? Whether you’re a seasoned horror veteran or a casual fan looking for a good spook, “Sister Death” is brewing a storm of supernatural suspense that’s bound to leave you delightfully chilled and thrillingly entertained. Pop that corn, dim those lights, and brace yourself for a cinematic experience that whispers tales of the supernatural while casting a spell of irresistible horror.
