It’s advertised as “horror, mystery, thriller,” but “slow, boring, stupid” would be more appropriate. Why why why do directors, writers, whoever is responsible for this dribble continue to only have scenes take place in the dark with inadequate light and things that creak? Surely a scary movie can have something more to offer than that. Way cool castle though.

The Nun, a movie based off of the Conjuring series. I give this movie a 5 out of 5, this is the BEST moves I have ever seen it is a great horror film and it is very scary in my mind. As a person who grew up as seeing nuns as good, they now freak me out so much, but I know that there are good nuns out there this is just for movie purposes. Let's start with the story like I always do, it connects so many questions that I had when watching the second movie, now when I first saw this Nun she freaked me out I thought I was never going to be able to look in the mirror again, go to sleep as she freaked me out. But when I heard they were making a movie about her I wanted to watch it, so many secrets that had been kept I was so confused about who she was wy she even existed and why she wanted this family. The one thing about this movie was that it does has to deal with a lot of suicide, which is not my favorite subject. The Jumpsarces in this movie were ok, I mean I knew when they were coming but yet I didn't. The acting was amazing as they always do an amazing job with horror movies. I suggest this movie to people over 16 because like I said before it touches on suicide and it is a very scary movie even for me. -@Icecream of the Teen Review Board of the Hamilton Public Library

I may be a little biased in this review as I was raised in the Catholic Church and grew to believe in the story behind the film, so forth. That being said, the film felt very real in how it was portrayed in The Abbey in Romania as well as within the religious/historical contexts of its story. It was shot well enough considering how dark and illuminated several of the scenes were. Some of the acting and sequences could have been done a little better. And, if you didn't believe in the true story of the film, it could easily be seen as "another religious-based horror movie" with suspense, music and lighting playing their parts to add affect; nothing more. However, in my opinion, the casting was really spot on and the story was modestly believable. All in all, this film may not please every movie fan out there, yes I could understand that. But for those with even a smidgen of curiosity about the movie and its story, this one is worth at least one watch.

Part of the "Conjuring"/"Insidious" universe, this is a bit predictable, but pretty creepy and atmospheric. Demian Bichir and Taissa Farmiga star. Scary nuns are not as good as naughty nuns, but I'll take it!

Wasn't as bad as I was expecting. Nothing special but entertaining enough.

Ask the library to discard all copies of this movie.

Many parts of this movie are way too cheesy to handle. There's a particular scene I recall with a thin blanket of the most B movie looking fog hovering over the cemetery ground. There's a scene where one character defies the laws of physics regarding oxygen and fire. I'm able to give it 2 stars because there are parts that did give me a good chill down my spine. I wouldn't really recommend this movie though.

How is it supposed to be scary when it's so structured and predictable? If you haven't seen a Hollywood scary movie before it may be "a little bit" scary.
It kind of imitates "The Woman In Black" but no where near that.

I watched this movie as I heard good things about it and I agree with them. I haven't seen any of the Conjuring universe films and had no idea what the movie was beyond something scary. I'll save specific comments, and say that I ultimately found this to be a very well done horror film, and that's been a rare thing lately.

Roma are concerned about the safety and welfare of their convent. I would talk to the sisters, to reassure the Church.
-I can give you the peace you are looking for.
I'm afraid that's not enough... Roma will send other representatives of the
Church, perhaps less diplomatic.
===
What were your visions?
-There were many, but never the same. But when finished, the same thought was in my head.
And what was that?
