This weekend's The Nun is the third spin-off movie in James Wan's The Conjuring Universe, and the first to delve into the backstory of the titular nun who we first meet in The Conjuring 2.

You might be asking yourself: How does this movie link up with the others?

The Conjuring, its sequel, the two Annabelle films, and now The Nun are a part of a shared universe. But what does that mean for a horror movie? What does that mean for this horror movie?

While I was in Mexico City to catch a screening for The Nun in an abandoned, haunted convent (yes, that's really how this movie was promoted to some critics), I sat down with director Corin Hardy to talk about why it's exciting for him to work within the guidelines of The Conjuring universe and what elements of that universe he knew he had to (and wanted to) include.
