From the co-director of [REC]Paco Plaza‘s movie Veronica is getting a prequel with Sister Death (aka Hermana Muerte), and Netflix teased today that we can expect it to arrive sometime in October.

No specific release date has been revealed as of yet, but look for it to arrive on the streaming platform after Sister Death makes its world premiere at Sitges Film Festival. Sitges is slated to commence on October 5 and run through October 15, 2023, with Sister Death set as the opening feature.

The festival notes that the film was “shot almost entirely in the Royal Monastery of San Jerónimo de Cotalba.”

In Sister Death, “In post-war Spain, Narcisa (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.”

Prequel Sister Death will center on the character Hermana Muerte, played by Consuelo Trujillo in VeronicaAlmudena Amor, Luisa Merelas, Chelo Vivares, and Maru Valdivielso also star in Sister Death.

Netflix’s Veronica was about a young woman who must protect her younger brother and sister after she attempts to bring back the spirit of their dead father through a Ouija ritual.

Verónica is loosely based on the true story of Estefania Gutierrez Lazaro, a Spanish teenager who died mysteriously in 1992 after using a Ouija board. You can stream Veronica over on Netflix right now and get caught up ahead of the prequel’s release.

Jorge Guerricaechevarria wrote the script for the new prequel movie.

Netflix has yet to announce their Halloween plans this year, but it’s safe to assume that Sister Death will get a firmer release date when they do. Stay tuned!
