Sister Death movie on Netflix is a Veronica prequel
The supernatural horror movie Sister Death premiered on Netflix on Friday, October 27th 2023, and actually serves as a prequel to the 2017 horror Veronica.
For those that may not remember or are unfamiliar, Veronica was a Spanish language film directed by Paco Plaza, drawing its inspiration loosely from a true story case in 1991 where an 18-year-old woman Estefanía Gutiérrez Lázaro passed away of mysterious causes after using a ouija board.
The movie was set appropriately in 1991, whereas Sister Death takes place in Spain in the aftermath of the Civil War, fought from 1936 to 1939.
Instead of the titular Veronica, we rewind back the clocks to focus on a new character, Narcisa, a nun who discovers she possesses supernatural powers and becomes a teacher at a new school.
Paco returns to the director’s chair for the prequel, whereas a new cast has been brought in…
