Horror fans rushed to theaters this weekend to catch the latest psychological thriller on the big screen, Immaculate. Needless to say, there are spoilers ahead as we will be breaking down the shocking final moments. If you have not yet seen the movie, this is your one and only spoiler alert!

For the most part, Immaculate fails to deliver more than jump scares and unnecessary gore. That is, until the final scenes. I don't know about you, but I'd say the movie's ending makes up for it, and then some. Another highlight is that we have found our latest scream queen in Sydney Sweeney! We need to get the actress in the proper horror movie!

Immaculate centers on Cecilia (Sweeney), a young nun who is invited to reside at an Italian convent. Upon arriving, Cecilia is surprised by the unfriendly Sisters and her superiors. The young nun also has an odd feeling about Father Sal Tedeschi (Álvaro Morte). It takes almost no time before things take a dark, sinister turn when the convent's true intentions surface. The movie also stars Benedetta Porcaroli, Dora Romano, and others. Now, let's get to that shocking, bloody ending!

Immaculate movie ending (spoilers ahead)

Audience's jaws drop when it is revealed that Father Tedeschi, who used to be a biologist, used one of the nails that crucified Jesus to extract Jesus' DNA. With the help of other sisters at the convent, Tedeschi has been experimenting on young nuns, determined to impregnate one with the second coming of Jesus. All of Tedeschi's attempts have been failures. Dead and deformed fetuses are shown.

In the final moments, Cecilia manages to escape, killing anyone who gets in her way. Once out, Cecilia gives birth to Father Tedeschi's experiment. Cecilia appears disgusted by the sight as audiences can hear the baby make strange, inhuman sounds. We then see Cecilia reach a large rock and smash it into the creature (which we never get to see). The audience is made to understand that this was yet another failed experiment and Cecilia wasted no time putting an end to it.

What do you think of this bloody finale? Some viewers have expressed disappointment in not being shown the creature, but, personally, I enjoyed the mystery of it all and it being left to our imagination.

At the time of this writing, Immaculate is only playing in theaters. Since this is a Neon production, the movie will more than likely stream on Hulu after it leaves the big screen. As soon as we have more details, we'll update this post!
