    I liked The Nun. It was okay to watch. It wasn’t bad. But I do agree with your review at the same time. And “nun” of the Conjuring franchise films are as great as the Conjuring 1&2. I think that’s to be expected. For one, the Conjuring films has A++ acting talent heading those movies like Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga. That helps elevate the material even more. The other films have adequate actors that are average, but not bad, but not as powerhouse as those in the Conjuring films. And you’re right also about the Nun, while I did like it, not love it, but did, I still don’t know what the Nun’s ultimate goal was beyond the possession. And you nailed it, that when she had the priest in the coffin, what was the point if to just pull another pointless prank. I would think a real demon wouldn’t have that kind of time or patience to be pranking the priest and his nun throughout the film just because that’s what’s in the screenplay written by a human being who clearly never gave it much thought.

    4/5 is what it deserves or a B at least. Scary more than Hereditary that’s for sure. You only high scored that one cause of actors in it.

    The mood, setting, music and dark cinematography was actually amazing on the Nun. But no plot and scares were not scary

    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.

    I actually burst out laughing at the mirror scene where the nun just keeps a hand from behind and the mirror breaks. It was hilarious.

    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.

    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

    So is 'The Nun' worse or better than 'Apostle?' Apostle told a sketchy story that led to something much bigger which was surprising in the end.
