The Nun is dripping with Gothic Horror goodness, doesn't take itself too seriously, and watching it feels *almost* like you're watching a classic Hammer Horror flick.

It's not hard to imagine why they thought this was a good idea. A franchise driven sequel that fails horribly in the art of the scare. [Full review in Spanish].

Why all the strange things, the vision, the nonsense? That said, I'm kind of here for it. I'm pretty happy with what I got, and if you're looking for a wild time at the movies, might I recommend The Nun...

It's a pity that the storyline is so weak, given that Bichir and Farmiga both give excellent performances.

I can't say this is going to be the type of film that you'll want to plan your weekend for. At the very best, a discounted matinee watch would be the route to go, or feel free to wait for it to land on a streaming platform.

A bland and plodding piece of horror Cathsploitation.

En vez de ver La monja, sólo vean las dos escenas en las que aparece en El conjuro 2. Seguro eso los asusta más.

The Nun winds up being a mash-up that's far more dead than alive.

Looking to experience the promised darkest and spookiest chapter in The Conjuring universe? Sadly, your prayers have certainly not been answered here. Maybe The Crooked Man will fare a bit better, but for my money? The Nun deserved better.

Right off the top I will say that it is not a fantastic film, but there are some creepy moments scattered throughout. Enough so that you will endure through the rest which is quite substandard.

The jump-scares are dispensed with a kind of clockwork disregard for the broader drama or stakes; like sugary morsels of adrenaline, they're momentarily titillating but ultimately unsatisfying.

December 3, 2018
The Nun boasts a creepy gothic atmosphere and a strong performance from Oscar nominee Demian Bichir, but thanks to its overreliance on cheap, ineffective jump scares, the film becomes just another misfire in the Conjuring universe.

The special effects are basic, the central character of the story, the nun, is not terrifying and sometimes gives the impression that her face is a mix between the villain The Penguin and the singer Marilyn Manson. [Full review in Spanish]

Taissa Farmiga deserves better.

A solid addition to this long-running series.

"The Nun" could have been many things; instead it's a very bad horror film. [Full Review in Spanish]

It's nuns amok in this bleak, deeply cliched yet effective supernatural spookster.

November 1, 2018
The film boasts strong performances and some of the most striking visuals of any film in The Conjuring universe. What it lacks is fully developed characters and a complete story that connects well to the other films in the franchise
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
November 1, 2018
Lacking anything that resembles compelling characters with actual arcs, The Nun fails that critical first test of the movies: investing the audience in the plight of its heroes.

Sets out to build a different energy from the rest of the movies in "The Conjuring" franchise, and for better and for worse, it accomplishes that.
