    There was nothing wrong with this movie, what so ever. It's just, we're used to seeing most of the things this movie has to offer.
    Horror is a dead genre because we've gotten used to this sort of stuff. Jumpscares, suspence, creepiness! Name a single movie that
    hasn't already used the same formula and been praised for it!
    It's a good horror movie, made with old ingredients. That's all.

    I have never felt that any of the Conjuring movies are supposed to have surprising and scary jumpscares. I, for one, have been able to predict almost every scare in the franchise with shocking accuracy. I think, instead, it's about the art of the setup. I think this movie did very well in general but I will agree that the pan away, pan back did get old.

    in regards to the "pranks," they are all to erode the characters' psyches. Particularly in the scene with the bells, this is to disorient them. Burke feels like he will never be noticed with all the other bells. The girl is associating each bell with someone who was buried but is alive. Everyone buried in that graveyard appears to the girl in visions that she believes are real. For her part, Valak had no reason to expect that the girl would find Father Burke, she only found him because of her psychic abilities. Also why not: a demon's existence is based solely around carnal pleasures. Like It, she revels in her victims' fear, why not have a little fun along the way to murdering people.

    if you look at it like a demon trying to shake the faith of a priest it makes more sense. no meaning in just killing him, got to make him denounce his god first. that way you have his soul to torment for eternity. or that's my understanding of Christianity anyway.

    What I didnt respect about the Nun has more to do with conjuring 2. In conjuring 2 they defeated the demon really easily. In the nun you have a priest who has experience with exorcism and a nun the entire movie was a battle

    I feel like this movie is more frightening to ex or practicing Catholics. Yes, the demon messes with them, but that is how a demon breaks a person down so they can possess them, which was the ultimate goal of this demon. I really enjoyed how they brought it back to the first Conjuring.

    All this was a plan...and the plan was to make it look like they sealed the demon but actually finally possessed someone and got out. Awesome origin of the demon that is making it hell for people.

    Loved this movie. It was so campy and had a 1970s Italian vibe to it. They should have scrapped the exorcism side plot though, had they done that it would've been 10/10 for me in terms of entertainment. Definitely not a scary movie, just fun and super atmospheric.

  • TheLonelyGoomba

    This has got to be one of the most disappointing films I've seen. I think even the worst horror films have some redeeming features. But this was just such a huge let down.
    The only really redeemable aspect of the film was the setting, but it wasn't really used well either. Hated this film man

    My brother brought this movie over tonight and it sucked ass. Super blashpemous, retarded, and the nun was like a fucking alien from star wars on pcp and was stupid af. They pirated a scene from Star Trek 2 when a tenticle chokes a guy out and pirated the holy hand grenade from Monty Pyton and the Holy Grail, only made it supposedly filled with the blood of Christ, and the girl drinks
    it and spits it in the nuns face. Seriously, how godless can society become to mock Jesus in such a filthy way. Sickening. Hated this movie with a passion. I give this movie an F, as in Fucking Trash. The creator should be flogged with a 2x4.

    i wonder what happened. all the previous movies were good. this movie just played with the camera angles like when anyone turns around and they turn back, BOOM as expected a spirit will be there. if you guys want to good horror movie to do with a religious cult, watch Apostle. if you want a really good scary movie, watch "A Quiet Place" excellent movies

    The pan away and pan back is mastered by james wan. He does it in a way that you dont know what's gonna happen and when. Insidious chapter 3 with the guy who jumped out the window then was crawling up the wall. That was perfect! (If only the trailer didnt spoil it😒)

    I felt like this movie didn't fully delve into why this entity chose to present itself as a nun and haunt this particular church. I know in the conjuring 2 it touched on the entity presenting itself as nun to test your faith, but is that all? It wasn't entertaining at all and was a a great disappointment. I was looking forward to this film as well and just ended up falling asleep and having to rewind some parts.

    It was the shittiest movie i have seen in a long time. Was dissapointed. One horror cliche after the other for no reason. Just a mess of a movie. Expected so much more. I am kinda sad that this movie can be the reason that the conjuring franchise won't be able to expand with another movie. It would disheart every single director and producer to even attempt creating something that has to do with the conjuring franchise. Shit movie don't even watch it. It is a cashgrab and i would love if i could get the 10 euro refund for the cinema that i payed. This movie did not even deserve 4 euros nevertheless 10.

    If you're really a massive horror fan you gotta understand that the rationality of horror stories is not that important to the genre. Horror come from the imagination. Its the domain of irrationality and mystery, and its correct that some things or events doesnt make sense and are not explained. The visuals and the atmosphere should and do come first for most of the time. Most of Dario Argento, Lucio Fulci, Sam Raimi, all those great directors works, are renowed for the visuals and atmosphere building; their stories are often messy and incoherent, actors do stupid things, etc ...
    I really liked the gothic aesthetic of the movie. When they use practical effects its well done too. The parts of cgi was kind of meh. Yeah they used that cliché of old tomes to explain the entity backstory, but since it take place in a old monastery, i think its well justified.
