Z-movie "mockbusters" are everywhere at at this year's American Film Market.
Following The Nun, the $364 million smash that recently became the most successful film in Warner Bros.' Conjuring franchise, smaller-pocketed genre buyers can get in on the (sister) act, too, thanks to such titles as The Bad Nun, Curse of the Nun, The Sinister Nun and, just, Nun.
"Our film wasn't actually called that, it was called The Watcher and then renamed," says Scott Jeffrey, the British writer-director of The Bad Nun, which is being shopped by ITN Distribution. "They came to us in February and said they needed a film with a nun in it. They didn't really care what it was about, it just needed to have a nun basically doing bad shit."
