Sydney Sweeney Haunted by Mysterious Pregnancy in ‘Immaculate‘ Trailer
Sydney Sweeney stars as Cecilia, a deeply religious woman who moves into a convent in the Italian countryside but soon learns that her new home holds terrifying secrets. The footage shows Sweeney‘s character finding out about her miraculous pregnancy before her path takes a terrible turn.
“God saved me for a reason, but I’m still searching for what that reason is,” Sweeney says in the trailer.
The film also stars Álvaro Morte, Benedetta Porcaroli, Dora Romano, Giorgio Colangeli, and Simona Tabasco. Sweeney, Jonathan Davino, Teddy Schwarzman, and Michael Heimler are producers, while Christopher Casanova, John Friedberg, and Will Greenfield serve as executive producers.
Sydney Sweeney is a Pregnant Nun in This Convent-Set Horror Movie
Sydney Sweeney plays a nun who mysteriously becomes pregnant in the new horror movie Immaculate. This is worrying for at least a few different reasons, including the fact that she doesn’t know how it happened, and that the priests in her convent declare that her conception must be a miracle and that the child she’s having must be supernaturally blessed, if not the return of Christ himself.
But it seems that not everyone thinks this child will be a gift from heaven.
The trailer is full of bad vibes, including horrifying shots of red-masked figures in robes and violent encounters that prove a conspiracy is afoot. The trailer also has plenty of sleaze, a touchstone of the convent Horror genre and not surprising from the director of the fun and underrated erotic thriller The Voyeurs from 2021 — which also starred Sweeney.
Sydney‘s the Chosen One, But That Doesn’t Seem Like a Good Thing
Sydney Sweeney is more than happy to throw herself deep into the genre-movie pool and we’re all better for it. With rom-coms already under her belt, as well as an erotic thriller, and soon a superhero movie, she’s now turning to the old classic of convent horror. The first trailer for her new movie Immaculate was released on Thursday and it looks like a creepy and weird throwback to horror Movies of the past.
Immaculate is set to arrive in theaters on March 22.
