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.
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]
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
