In 2017, Netflix released Veronica, a Spanish horror film directed by Paco Plaza that still tops “Best Of” lists as one of the service’s most scary films. Plaza is taking us back into that dark supernatural world with a prequel, Sister Death (aka Hermana Muerte), whose Halloween premiere date has just been announced.
Sister Death, set “In post-war Spain, sees Narcissa (Aria Bedmar), a young novice with supernatural powers, arrives at a former convent, now a school for girls, to become a teacher. As the days go by, the strange events and increasingly disturbing situations that torment her will eventually lead her to unravel the terrible skein of secrets that surround the convent and haunt its inhabitants.”
The prequel stars Consuelo Trujillo, who played Hermana Muerte in Veronica, and Almudena Amor, Luisa Merelas, Chelo Vivares, and Maru Valdivielso. Jorge Guerricaechevarria penned the script for Sister Death.
The thing that made Veronica so disturbing is that it is based on the true story of Estefania Gutierrez Lazaro, a Spanish teen who died mysteriously in 1992 after playing with an Ouija Board. The movie centers on a young woman fighting to protect her family after she unleashes a dark entity while playing with an Ouija Board.
Sister Death will premiere exclusively on Netflix on October 27, 2023. Be sure to watch or re-watch Veronica now on the streaming giant.
