Once everyone gets to the abbey, the film simply gives up the ghost and cynically indulges every horror trick in the book.

By overly relying on jump scares, "The Nun" uses a mechanical approach toward instilling fear rather than a more profound understanding of terror.

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.

Its script utilizes the kitchen-sink approach common to contemporary Hollywood blockbusters-and the film is worse off for it.

An empty thrill ride.
