It does not happen too often that the very last shot of a movie feels like the most important reason the film was made in the first place. And even if it does, not every last shot can push the viewers to the edge of their seats like Immaculate did. While the entirety of the religious-horror was dark enough to leave a feeling of discomfort in the hearts, it was the last shot, the intense, bloody final scene, that became the true show-stopper.

Sydney Sweeney, while promoting the movie, revealed a trivia about that particular shot, which was even more shocking than the scene itself.
