Hello Hip Hop Heads and Horror Fans,
Today I will be reviewing the Netflix series, “Warrior Nun”, which has new faces I have never seen on the screen. The leading actress is Alba Baptista who plays Ava. This is a very dope series! I kept seeing people post about it on IG and comparing to Buffy the Vampire Slayer so I decided to give it a watch. I was pleasantly surprised. The way they shot the show from the cinematography, beautiful filming locations in Spain, the cast, and the story was great! The main premise of the show is these warrior nuns have been trained to protect people from demons. There is the main Halo Bearer who leads the group. This nun has a Halo literally inside her back. It was a Halo passed down from the Angel Adriel that has been passed down for years. They are gifted with superpowers and self-healing due to having this Halo.
The show starts with the current Halo Bearer Shannon who has been shot with Divinium, apparently it’s sort of the Nun’s kryptonite that can kill them even when bearing the Halo. So she ends up dying and they have to take the Halo out and put it on the new chosen Nun. In this case it was supposed to be Lilith, but there is an explosion and the Halo is taken out of Shannon by a Nun who runs since there are demons trying to get it. The nun runs into a room where Ava’s lifeless body lays. I forgot to mention they are in the back part of an Orphanage/Church. Ava was an orphan that has just died. The nun puts the Halo inside her body and she resurrects. This sets everything in motion.
We find out Ava was bed ridden after a car accident that left her completely paralyzed and a nun who was just drugging her to keep her from recovering. Ava gets a second chance in life with a purpose to fight demons and stop the end of the world! You are taken into a crazy journey with warrior nuns and demons! I enjoyed every second of it. Def recommend it! The ending of Season 1 leaves you hanging, so I hope there is a season 2!
