The Nun

A priest is sent to Rome to investigate the mysterious death of a nun in this supernatural horror connected to The Conjuring universe.

When a young nun at a cloistered Romanian abbey takes her own life, a priest (Demián Bichir) and a novitiate (Taissa Farmiga) are sent by the Vatican to investigate. Risking not only their lives but their faith and their very souls, they confront a malevolent force in the form of the same demonic nun, as the abbey becomes a horrific battleground between the living and the damned.

There is rarely any sense that anyone involved with "The Nun" takes anything here too seriously, and audiences are advised to respond in kind.

The Nun lacks the confidence to let the location and mood speak, let alone whisper for themselves.

There are creepy crypts aplenty and a graveyard with bell-equipped coffins just in case anyone gets buried alive (alas, the transgressive sexuality of the era's more extreme nunsploitation flicks is off the table).

Specters and hallucinations appear without consistent narrative logic. Characters veer off separately when teamwork might reduce brushes with demons or death.

An efficient, unambitious, crowd-pleasing horror.

"The Nun," shot in murky pools of darkness that often leave you squinting at the screen, is a dispiriting reminder that franchising evil inevitably dissipates its impact.

It's good clean fun nevertheless, and the set pieces expertly supply the tension-and-release satisfactions of the genre.

Some striking images aside, there's little to thrill or engage here...

What I Thought about The Nun was That Annabelle Comes Home was the same type of movie: Blunt Jump scares, Horrible Plot. There were some scenes that I thought were pretty fun and eventful, but other from that, The Nun is a very dull horror movie. And that’s two horrible downfalls In The Conjuring Universe.
