The first teaser trailer for ‘The Nun’, the highly anticipated spin-off of ‘The Conjuring’ universe, is here to scare the bejaysus out of you.

The franchise has thus far consisted of ‘The Conjuring’ , ‘The Conjuring 2’, ‘Annabelle’, and ‘Annabelle: Creation’.

The new film is produced by Peter Safran and James Wan (who directed the first ‘Conjuring’ movies and whose next project is ‘Aquaman’), with a story from Wan and Gary Dauberman, who previously wrote the ‘Annabelle’ movies.

Corin Hardy, who made his directorial debut with the 2015 horror ‘The Hallow’, is helming it.

The Nun stars Oscar-nominated Demian Bichir (‘A Better Life’) as Father Burke, Taissa Farmiga (‘American Horror Story’) as Sister Irene, Jonas Bloquet (‘Elle’) as local villager Frenchie, Charlotte Hope (‘Game of Thrones’) as the abbey’s Sister Victoria, Ingrid Bisu (‘Toni Erdmann’) as Sister Oana, and Bonnie Aarons, reprising her ‘Conjuring 2’ role as the title character.

The plot synopsis is as follows:

“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.”

The Nun character also made a cameo appearance in last year’s ‘Annabelle: Creation.’
