After making waves on Netflix back in 2018, Paco Plaza’s horror movie Veronica is now getting a prequel with Netflix feature film Sister Death.
Sister Death will center on the character Hermana Muerte, played by Consuelo Trujillo in Veronica.
“In post-war Spain, Narcisa, a novice with supernatural powers, arrives at an old convent converted into a girls’ school to become a teacher. As the days go by, strange events and the increasingly disturbing situations that torment her will end up leading her to unravel the terrible skein of secrets that surround the convent and lie in wait for its inhabitants.”
Veronica which shocked Netflix viewers when it debuted on the streaming service was loosely based on a true story about the unsolved case of a young girl in Madrid in 1992 named Estefania Gutierrez Lazaro, who mysteriously died after using an Ouija board. Police were never able to crack their investigation.
Estefania reportedly tried to conduct the seance at school to contact the late boyfriend of one of her friends, after he died in a motorcycle accident. When a teacher interrupted, the group she was with described seeing a kind of smoke going into Estefania’s nose and mouth.
The story goes that Estefania began to suffer from seizures and hallucinations for the following six months. She told her parents she saw “evil” shadows from her room and was taken to see doctors by her parents. Ever since she died in hospital, her death remains unexplained.
The film is still considered one of the scariest films on Netflix and is highly recommended viewing.
