The Moral Majority: The Nun

When a young nun at a cloistered abbey in Romania takes her own life, a priest with a haunted past and a novitiate on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate. Together, they uncover the order's unholy secret. Risking not only their lives but their faith and their very souls, they confront a malevolent force in the form of a demonic nun.

The Nun has some Christian, moral themes of good versus evil but doesn’t always have clear theology. The main character has a beautiful profession of faith in the middle of the movie. Also, the blood of Jesus Christ ultimately is shown to be more powerful than any evil. Despite this, many nuns die because of the demon, which implies their faith didn’t protect them.
