The prequel to the smash hit Spanish horror Verónica is coming to Netflix in October. Sister Death will first debut at the Sitges Film Festival before arriving on Netflix in October 2023. We’re keeping track of everything you need to know about Sister Death, including the plot, cast, and Netflix release date.
Sister Death is an upcoming Spanish Netflix Original horror movie directed and produced by Paca Plaza, and the prequel to Plaza’s 2017 horror Verónica. The feature is produced by El Estudio, which was created by producers Enrique López Lavigne (Verónica, The Grandmother), Pablo Cruz (Fear the Walking Dead), and Diego Suarez Chialvo (Slaughterhouse Rulez).
When is Sister Death coming to Netflix?
At the time of writing, Netflix has yet to reveal a release date, and a preliminary release date hasn’t been set.
However, those lucky enough to attend the Sitges Film Festival will get to see the premiere of Sister Death as it opens the film festival on October 5th, 2023.
Netflix has confirmed that Sister Death is scheduled to be released in October 2023, and will likely debut on the streaming service after the Sitges Film Festival.
Director Paco Plaza had the following to say about Sister Death opening the Sitges Film Festival:
“I’ve been attending the Sitges Festival since 1991, so it’s easy to guess what a privilege it is for me to participate another year, and especially with the opening film. Sitges is the Wimbledon of horror, the center of the world for the entire horror film community on a planetary level, and for “Sister Death” to be the opening film is an honor that fills me with happiness. It is a very special film for me in many ways, an expansion of the universe of “Veronica”, with which it has many connections, but it is a film with its own nature and very different from its predecessor, a film of a dark luminosity around a character very dear to me”.
