Horror. In the 1950s, the Vatican sends Fr Anthony Burke, a priest with exorcism experience, and Sister Irene, a young trainee nun with a history of visions, to investigate the sinister supernatural events that have been occurring at a remote Romanian convent where a young nun has hanged herself. Fr Burke and Sr Irene find that the local villagers avoid going anywhere near the convent, believing it contains an ancient source of evil, but a French-Canadian farmer known as Frenchie, who has taken a shine to Sr Irene, takes them there. Once there they all encounter some terrifying malevolent beings, including the demon nun Valak.
