Summary Edit

A priest with a haunted past and a novice on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate the death of a young nun in Romania and confront a malevolent force in the form of a demonic nun.

Why It Rocks Edit

Do not add spoilers to this page, as the movie was recently released.

  1. The cinematography is chilling and fits the nightmarish tone of the movie.
  2. The actor’s performances are amazing, especially from Taissa Farmiga and Bonnie Aarons.
  3. Valak/The Demon Nun is still an unforgettable, demonic character.
  4. Nunerous amount of well-executed scary and serious scenes.
  5. Terrifying visual effects.
  6. The idea of a priest with a haunted past investigating the mysterious suicide of a nun and discovering it’s the influence of a demonic figure is pretty original
  7. Decent character and story-development.
  8. Much like Annabelle: Creation, it’s an origin film about one of the most memorable antagonists in The Conjuring franchise.
  9. Corin Hardy has great skills as a director.

Bad Qualities Edit

  1. The film wasn’t well-received at the box office, as it had gotten mixed reviews and a low score on Rotten Tomatoes.
  2. The narrative can get boring and a bit poor at times.
  3. Overuse of jumpscares, the most overused, obnoxious and boring cliche in all of horror films.
  4. One of the ads got banned on YouTube for using a jump scare, which is against YouTube's policies for ads. It also imitated the iOS volume interface being turned down, a big no-no in advertising.
