Reviews: The Nun (2018)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • Steve Biodrowski @ Hollywood Gothique
    • Excerpt: The Nun is not much of a prequel, but it does provide more mindless fun than expected, especially when the scares are enhanced by the new immersive ScreenX format.
  • Alex Brannan @ CineFiles Reviews
    • Excerpt: Terror ensues. I guess.
  • Andrea Chase @ Killer Movie Reviews
    • Excerpt: To judge by the loud snoring exploding a few seats away from me, I was not the only one who found this lugubrious excrescence less than compelling.
  • Karl Delossantos @ Smash Cut Reviews
    • Excerpt: The Nun feels like too much of a blockbuster with a lack of plot and focus on jump scares to be an effective entry in this horror franchise.
  • Herman Dhaliwal @ Cinema Sanctum
    • Excerpt: The Nun is another solid addition to the Conjuring franchise with its particular brand of pop-horror and fine-tuned scares. Despite some thin plotting anc characterization, it’s elevated by solid performances and a great atmosphere.
  • Matt Donato @ We Got This Covered
    • Excerpt: Romanian castles and catacombs define The Nun’s tremendous location characteristics, which are inherently spooky when used to heighten a more “generic” brand of horror than Conjurverse films are used to.
  • Candice Frederick @ /Film
  • Federico Furzan @ Cinelipsis [Spanish]
    • Excerpt: Si así crecerá el universo de The Conjuring creado por James Wan, entonces no queremos que siga creciendo. The Nun es una explosión estética de horror que se desvanece casi instantáneamente.
  • Vadim Grigoriev @ kinoblog.com [Ukrainian]
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: “The Nun” is like the cinematic equivalent of a fidget spinner, holding one’s attention until it keeps spinning its wheels and fails to go to any place of actual consequence.
  • [New] | Jared Mobarak @ JaredMobarak.com
    • Excerpt: The strings are forever visible and no amount of stunning production design or visual effects can mask this truth.
  • Darren Mooney @ the m0vie blog
    • Excerpt: And then there were Nun.
  • Aaron Neuwirth @ We Live Entertainment
  • Eddie Pasa @ Gunaxin
    • Excerpt: Shallowly-scripted and overly reliant on haunted house-type scares, The Nun marks the second misstep in the five-years-old Conjuring universe (the first being Annabelle), beating its empty chest as it flatlines its way to its closing credits.
  • Paulo Peralta @ CinEuphoria [Portuguese]
  • Michael Reuben @
    • Excerpt: The Nun is more effective than several of its Conjuring predecessors, in large part because it is more efficient, avoiding narrative bloat and getting straight to business. Still, if you’re familiar with the many sources from which the film is drawn, you can’t help but sit back and tick off the references instead of being drawn into the chilling atmosphere.
  • Marcio Sallem @ Cinema com Crítica [Portuguese]
  • Amir Siregar @ Amir at the Movies [Indonesian]
    • Excerpt: Probably the weakest link of ‘The Conjuring Universe’ – yes, even worse than the bland ‘Annabelle.’
