You've seen Annabelle and the Conjuring movies, but have you seen the Indonesian creepy doll trilogy that's obviously set in the same universe? And did you know The Nun was shot in Romania by a studio that got started with ultra-campy "finger demons" at a time when the whole country was recovering from a violent revolution? Light some candles with us as we get spooky with "The Doll" (Indonesia, 2016) and "Subspecies" (Romania & The United States, 1991). Also - sylvan folk horror, mind-bending boat trips and Scandanavian kaiju are all coming soon.
