I am surprised to see how bad the nun really is after all those great conjuring movies we have had in the past. The Nun finds the most generic horror cliches and shoves them at your face, constantly relying on very cheap and ineffective jump scares. This movie most likely won’t scare any avid horror fan, I can only see the scares working on people who are new to the horror genre and aren’t familiar with the horror cliches. This movie’s plot is also incredibly weak and executed terribly, not only that, but the bland and uninteresting characters make this movie a chore to sit through. Worst part is that this movie is excruciatingly boring. I was bored out of my mind sitting through this mess and I can only recommend this movie to anyone who doesn’t mind sitting through cliched jumpscares. Rating: 1/5

I was expecting this movie to be better than it was. It had it's scary and creepy moments which was good, but not gonna lie I started to fall asleep during the long slow parts of the movie. I personally wouldn't recommend.

With the copy at the library, it had to many scratches so couldn't see the 1st few 'scenes', but seems to me a run of the mill "scarer". --chris b. stratton

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 has a great storyline with many scares that will have you trembling in your seat. The beginning of the film is slow, however, once you get past this part, the movie becomes quick-paced and interesting with good performances by the cast. I think they should have worked on Valak's character build-up and why he continues to take the form of the nun. This is not a family movie. I would recommend this movie for older teens and adults because it has mature material and frightening scenes that may be too scary for young children. If you like the feeling of panic as creepy music starts to increase in volume and the characters in front of you scream in fear, this movie is for you. Overall, the movie has a lot of jump scares, sometimes predictable, sometimes not, but it is still a fun and enjoyable film. 4/5 stars.

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.

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.

The mother superior says that dinosaurs never really lived. God has placed his bones, to test our faith.
-That seems very far fetched, don't you think?
But they are not in the Bible.
-Well... do you believe in penguins and koalas?
-They are not in the Bible either. The Bible is God's love for us chat... but, that doesn't mean that he isn't willing... to question... about the wonders of his creation.

Usually it is one of the two... when an older man and a young, beautiful... not so innocent, they will appear at my door this morning.
What brings a French countryside of Romania?
-I am French Canadian, but do not tell anyone. That does not sound so romantic. I was looking for gold, but when I met people here... I knew I wanted to be here and help them in all possible ways.

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?
--Mary points the way.--
What is the opposite of a miracle, Father?
You have failed, as everyone in your life. Tomorrow tThe village will lose its idiot. You should have run when you had the chance, Frenchy.
-I'm French Canadian.
Why they covered the mirror?
- It is the tradition when someone dies. Cover the mirror so that the deceased did not see... its reflection and become a ghost.
