The Nun director had scares of his own while making the movie.
Looks like when you’re making a movie about a demon masquerading around as a nun, you’re bound to have your own run-ins with the paranormal, no matter how much you think it’s just all for the cameras.
This was the experience of the The Nun director Corin Hardy, who even had the set of the movie blessed by a priest, probably as a precaution.
In an interview with Yahoo Entertainment, Hardy said the weird experience came in the film’s set in Romania.
They were shooting a sequence called the Corridor of Crosses in a fortress in Transylvania, and he was joined by star Taissa Farmiga.
Hardy recounted that they had monitors set up in “this little cell room along the sides of this long corridor.”

“As I stepped into the room I saw a couple guys sitting in [the back]of the room,” Hardy said. “I presumed they [were from]the sound department. I said, ‘Hi,’ and I quickly turned around — I had my back to them. And I was watching the monitors, I was watching Taissa, I was watching the camera, and it was quite a difficult scene to coordinate, and it took about half an hour,” said Hardy.
“So I was sitting there, there’s only one doorway in and out of this room, and we finally got the shot. I turned around to say, ‘Oh, did you see that? What did you think?’ And there’s no one in the room. And there never had been.”
Look like a sure way to attract spirits is to make a Conjuring film.
The Nun is a spinoff prequel that follows the evil Valak, who was introduced in The Conjuring 2, and how it came to be.
