October 10, 2018
Once everyone gets to the abbey, the film simply gives up the ghost and cynically indulges every horror trick in the book.
September 23, 2018
By overly relying on jump scares, "The Nun" uses a mechanical approach toward instilling fear rather than a more profound understanding of terror.
September 7, 2018
Were it not for sudden blasts of Dolby fury, there would be nothing to provide shocks, let alone scares. What terrifies most is the complete and utter lack of plot.
September 7, 2018
With no effort whatever to build a sinister atmosphere by layering the tension and creating characters about whom their parents could possibly care, every stab at a fright is a bog-standard jump scare...
September 7, 2018
Its script utilizes the kitchen-sink approach common to contemporary Hollywood blockbusters-and the film is worse off for it.
September 6, 2018
The scares are non-existent (being pulled backwards along the floor into a darkened room hasn't been scary since Insidious in 2010).
August 3, 2019
Towards the end, The Nun tries to beef up its plot and eventually connects it to the rest of the franchise, but its sins are too many to ever make it interesting.

The nun is a very discreet horror film that quickly depletes its ideas and has a script full of weaknesses. [Full Review in Spanish]

Not being high gastronomy, the new spin off of the Warren universe fools with a moderately decent presentation. [Full Review in Spanish]

The Nun has more noise than scare for fans of fright.
June 24, 2019
The strings are forever visible and no amount of stunning production design or visual effects can mask this truth.
June 18, 2019
The Nun is a sloppy cash-grab that further dilutes The Conjuring brand, a cinematic universe that is hilariously more profitable than the DC comic book umbrella.
June 5, 2019
Given the film's talent, and the inventive, subepidermal shocks of its forebears The Nun is a hollow affair.
May 18, 2019
The franchise worsens with each new episode, hitting an all-time low here.
May 1, 2019
Despite being billed as 'the darkest chapter' within the Conjuring universe of films, The Nun is quite possibly the dullest on offer yet
April 13, 2019
[The Nun] had the potential to be something more, but the film lacked the authentic storytelling that makes The Conjuring series so good.
March 2, 2019
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.
February 18, 2019
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.
