    I didn't mind the movie, but it certainly wasn't scary.
    The priest was pretty useless the entire time, he even finds the name of the demon in a book and he never seems compelled to use it, or at least try to use it to fend the demon off.

    Movie totally disappointing to us massive horror lovers. They could have taken there just like stated by reviewer. Right. What was the goal here? Pranks all the way.

    The reason i searched for the nun review AFTER watching the movie is becoz i was SO ANGRY at how GOD AWFUL the movie was, I wanted to hear it from someone else!!! It was like a music to ears when I heard the criticism. I would rate this movie 0/100.

    1:12 - 134. Couldn't have said it better. This is all the movie consisted of.. It literally made me feel like it was a movie equivalent to scoobydoo or goosebumps.

    Wow...I'm amazed at how much I disagree with this review. Now I'm aware that that's his opinion and he's definitely entitled to one. So here's what I feel....
    I love this movie coz for every jumpscare that happens a very eerie atmosphere is created first that leaves u feeling very uneasy even before the actual jumpscare. So when the jumpscare actually happens it's kinda diffusing, satisfying and scary all at the same time. The atmosphere is even bone chilling at times. I don't mind jumpscares but I absolutely hate cheap ones. The ones that come out of nowhere without any buildup whatsoever and are just fake. So when he says that this movie has predictable ones....I ask myself that would he enjoy fake ones ??
    Apart from that this movie has a beautiful visual aesthetic. Blood was used in the right amounts and at the right times to create that uneasy and creepy atmosphere. The performances....all of them were terrific. To top it all off it ties in perfectly with Conjuring 1.

  • Felix Ray

    This movie absolutely worked for me. For me, knowing that the jump scare is coming, and dreading it, is the most compelling kind of suspense, and I loved the way that the jump scares kept coming faster and faster, and by the end it was just pop pop pop pop pop,and I couldn't get up to get my free drink refill. By some happy co-incidence, I had Lucio Fulci's City of the Living Dead, and The Nun is clearly laced with homages to this Italian horror classic, which begins when a priest hangs himself, which opens the gates of Hell. The Nun cleverly turns that premise on its head.

    *3 Things I didn't like that Chris didn't mention* -
    *1.* - why the heck did the father have a flashlight in that burrying scene and everyone else in the entire movie had lanterns or torches?
    *2.*- What language would they have been speaking? Irene said she had never been to "that side of the world" (where was Irene from?) So did they learn Romanian to go over there? Were they speaking Italian? French? What?? I need to know
    *3.*-They have this kind of classic view of what is scary - wrinkles - white or grey skin - pointy yellow teeth - no brows - dried up - shriveled - just generally inhuman but not very far off, I just feel like they should shake it up a little ya know
    (I just finished the movie an hour ago so this is my fresh perspective)

    You like no none...I keep coming back to give channel chance put it just seems your views just don't match but obviously you have tons who agree with you but the nun causing scary things to happen to the cast is exactly what I'm looking for. That's what the nun does! Jump out and scare! I followed the story just fine and it shows how it connects with franchise and cool ending. The atmosphere was scary,amazing visuals, creative scenes and actually jump scares done differently at times from the usual. It seems everyone is in to just hating and being dissapointed with everything they see. I'm old school and in the 80s we had all kinds of horror that was just popcorn fun schlocky horror flicks and if this had been one to come out of 80s I think it would be a classic by now. Those are the expectations I go in having. A haunted house experience on film and you get that vibe from this. Each to their own.

    I lost power during lightning storm and went out side to trip the breaker when a huge spider jump out from behind the door landing on my neck. I Slipped and fell, bumped my head which knocked me out. I woke up in bed in a dark hospital room. I called for the nurse but no one came. From the window I could see nothing so I go to the hall no light and no staff. I get on the elevator and the door closes but nothing happens when I push the lobby button. I could hear noise but I could not make them out. Out of no where the elevator starts moving but it’s go up. It goes to the top floor and opens. Its a dark hall I can see a dark figure in the distance. I yell out excuse me! It quickly turns. It’s a nurse but here face was covered in blood. She starts running to me with two Needles in here hand. I panic and start pushing buttons. The doors took forever to close. I could hear screams out side the evelvator door. The dim lights flicker and the elevator buckles. Then something snaps and the elevator falls 30 floors. The elevator slows at the sixth floor and continues as normal to the basement level and opens. stops with a

    *The most typical ghost/demon/spirit whatever* .. based in real experiences from everywhere: You hear them running in an other room or above you, you barerly see them, they turn off and on things like lights, TV's, you see their shadows, or you see them really clear but not for a long time by your bed, they make faint noises, faint distant screams, they knock on your walls and doors, they push you, leave scratches, they might throw an object, rare cases might be an object youve never seen before, you see them in mirrors, demons portraying children or others to lure you and so on.. and that is what makes a good ghost-story more realistic, because its happend before and that is most likely what you would hear anybody say when they supposedly come in contact with the paranormal.
    Fuck the fucking fuck off, worst fucking movie i've ever seen. You create a story which is based on nothing else than your stupid ignorant imagination, sure, if its a fucking fantasy-movie.

    My personal review of watching this film is well thought out of course the nun wasnt about the sister victoria (scary one) but more about the sister irene the (main female) when i was watching this i figured out during the movie that its was sister irene they were capturing , of course they're not going to tell you they're going to make you think and alot of people didnt understand...sister Victoria was a demon and they already explained her backstory of her being summoned by satan worshippers so thats that but the movie is about the irene figuring out her gift that later became who she is in the conjuring.. that my personal thought

    I thought it was good but not great. Spooky well acted and visually creepy. Just lacked a sense of dread. The addition of two genuinely scary scenes would have catapulted it towards Conjuring territory. The opening scene was fantastic I thought.

    Who made this dude THE voice of reason for movie reviews? He's just some whiny pale skin prick that hates every single movie. It's a horror film you douche, stop expecting something fuckin otherworldly and magical. The movie was really good and this guy sucks ass.

    • First Name Last Name
      First Name Last Name Month ago

      So many things wrong with this comment
      1. He's not the voice of reason for movie reviews. It's just a random guy giving out criticisms. Nobody made him that. Who told you that anyway?
      2. "Hates every single movie" He has an entire playlist where he talks about the movies he loves, some of which are horror.
      3. He knows it's a horror movie. The problems is that it wasn't scary, it focuses too much on jump scares rather than actual plot, those jump scares weren't even good, they were predictable as fuck, and it has plot holes. He isn't expecting something that is very crucial to the development of human society, he's just expecting a movie with good plot, good scares, etc. Nothing more, nothing less.
      4. You can't say a movie is really good without backing it up with criticisms. Same thing goes if you say a movie is bad. You can't say that without backing it up, and that's what this guy does.
      5. "Pale skin prick" Insulting someone for their appearance is bullshit. Seriously, who are you? A high school bully?

    I saw it yesterday, and i have to say at first i was kinda looking forward to this movie, but never expected it to be great, but after seeing jjahns and stuckmans reviews i wasnt so sure if i should see it in cinema, cause most of the Time i feel the same about movies as they do, but i was still curious enough to give it a try and after watching it yesterday i have to say, hm im pleasantly surprised ,it was good actually, the atmosphere was so creepy, the location uuhggg, the directing was very good, very creepy imageriy, acting good enough and some of the jump scares kinda clever the way they played around with the camera, the reviews dont do it Justice imo, i mean chris is mostly right about story weaknes and i know what he means by ,it could have been great and so much potential cause it really could've been aaawesome, but the movie was bether and more enjoiable than maaaaaaany Horror films in the last years, but for some reason i was never really afraid ,even if there really was some creepy stuff, i think i had some chills two or three times, but i guess its becsuse cinema, knowing that there is a crowd with you takes alot away from the scareeffect ,i guess Horror movies are most effectiv at home alone, but all in all im glad i saw it. WOW! That was a long comment .

    The trailers in my opinion made it look like it would be the "darkest chapter" and truly frighten me like the Conjuring movies did. But I guess it just was to predictable. It was like a lot of other movies that had high potential but just couldn't make it interesting. A good example is Slender, it looked like a pretty terrifying and unsettling film but couldn't put off true horror. But I will admit, Valak is fucking terrifying despite the how she was presented.
