This fall’s “The Nun II” is a direct sequel to 2018’s “The Nun,” however the film is definitely the ninth installment in what’s been dubbed the Conjuring Universe. The horror franchise initially started with tales tied to paranormal investigations led by famed demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren. Ed and Lorraine had been actual individuals who claimed to be paranormal investig ators, although many critics have questioned in the event that they had been the actual deal or simply grasp manipulators. Even then, the movie franchise takes many, many liberties with the tales of their lives. Though there lives have impressed movies earlier than, the Conjuring franchise as we at the moment realize it began with 2013’s “The Conjuring,” starring Patrick Wilson as Ed and Vera Farmiga as Lorraine.

Since then, we have gotten eight extra motion pictures, together with “The Nun II,” and so they make a universe full of haunted dolls, demonic nuns, and Satanic possessions. But for those who’re new to the Conjuring Universe (and even for those who’re not), it is perhaps onerous to maintain the chronological timeline of the movies straight. Ahead, we break down the chronological order of the Conjuring Universe, from “The Nun” to “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It.”
