Movie Info & Cast
Was the “demon nun” always so demon-y? This spinoff film fills in the history of the breakout terror that was first seen tormenting paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren in The Conjuring 2. In The Nun, a priest named Father Burke (Demián Bichir) travels to Romania to investigate the mysterious death of … well, a nun. We’re not saying it’s the demon nun, though. But it might be! Or not. All we know is that Taissa Farmiga is starring as a (different? demon?) nun named Irene – which is sort of fitting since her real-life sister Vera Farmiga played Lorraine Warren.

Did You Know?
- After the "Demon Nun" from The Conjuring 2 (2016) proved to be a popular horror antagonist, a spin-off focusing on the character was green-lit, making her the second character from the franchise to get her own feature after Annabelle (2014). The Crooked Man from Conjuring 2 will be the third in The Crooked Man.
- Romania was a communist country in 1952, meaning that atheism was essentially the "law of the land." It would be extremely difficult for a priest and a nun to travel to an abbey during that time, even if one were open.
- Father Burke: Next time do use the shotgun.

Great movie but not watching it again, way too scary. If you ever watch it don’t watch it alone bring a bible, holy water, priest, a cross, the pope, and the blood of christ. Good luck!
Since people are rating this movie bad before it even came out
If The Nun leaves a haunting impression, it’s of a missed opportunity to capitalise upon a visually distinctive antagonist within an existing hit series. The end result feels like an exercise in joining obvious franchise dots and paving the way for future films.
The Nun resorts to makeup effects to put a frightening face on its supposedly scary sisters.
In jettisoning the focus on family of the previous films, it gives us characters whose interactions with each other feel less than detailed, and who are more archetypal than real. But it’s good clean fun nevertheless, and the set pieces expertly supply the tension-and-release satisfactions of the genre.
