Back in July, ANNABELLE: CREATION director David F. Sandberg announced a contest for budding filmmakers to create their own short horror films set within THE CONJURING universe. Since his short homemade film, LIGHTS OUT, was well received in the internet universe he eventually landed an opportunity to expand that short film into the successful feature-length movie and kick-started an, already, successful career. This contest was his idea of giving back to the community
and had nothing to do with an already hyper-aggressive marketing campaign to help fuel an already financially successful franchise.
Here we are a month later and a huge congratulations are in order for the winner, Julian Terry!!! His film, THE NURSE, looks, sounds and feels like it fits right into THE CONJURING universe. If the film below is any indication to this up and coming filmmaker’s talent, then I’m really excited to see what the future holds for him and us.
