December 10, 2018
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
December 6, 2018
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]
Full Review | Original Score: 5.2/10
November 5, 2018
It's nuns amok in this bleak, deeply cliched yet effective supernatural spookster.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
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.

November 1, 2018
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.
October 31, 2018
The gothic horror setting is delectable, but this is far from the Holy Grail of spin-offs. Could we not have had Sister Act 3 instead?
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 29, 2018
With boring, cliched attempts of mythology, an underused cast, tedious pacing and hilariously forced attempts at scares and humour, the audience is better off having "nun" of it.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 20, 2018
The Nun is one silly "nun-sensical" roller coaster ride of jump scares.
October 15, 2018
A Sunday visit to church would likely be more terrifying.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 10, 2018
Old school jump scares and perhaps one of the best new monsters we've had in a long time.
October 10, 2018
This lackluster horror flick won't convert any new prophets
Full Review | Original Score: C-
October 10, 2018
The deeper The Nun proceeds to its plotted heart of evil the less it conducts itself as a genre entry.
Full Review | Original Score: D-
October 9, 2018
Once everyone gets to the abbey, the film simply gives up the ghost and cynically indulges every horror trick in the book.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
