The Nun (2018) 🌟🌟
In order to prep for watching The Nun, I recently watched The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2, which then gave me high expectations for The Nun 😁!
So, The Conjuring freaked me out a little 😟 and then, The Conjuring 2 scared the bejesus out of me 😱 (confession, I had to watch both movies with the light on💡). So, naturally I thought The Nun would be equally scary but, I was left feeling disappointed 😒.
Where the previous two movies felt so real and had the scare factor, I felt The Nun was lacking that element. It was missing that chill factor or, perhaps I just did not find evil dressed as a Nun scary 🤔.
Performance wise I can’t really say that anyone particularly stood out. Taissa Farmiga was ok but, you almost miss the presence of her older sister Vera Farmiga and also, Patrick Wilson, who starred in both of The Conjuring movies. I also found there was some comedy element thrown in through Jonas Bloquet which wasn’t necessary. Comedy wasn’t present in the other movies, so why this one 🤷♀️? Again, it took the chill factor out of the movie.
The music for the movie was definitely on point, with the eeriness echoing through the cinema auditorium😨. Also, the setting of the movie was very spooky but, the movie still did not scare me. A point to note, the director for this movie is different from the other movies. Perhaps the powers that be should have chosen James Wan again!
Overall, you’re not missing much if you don’t get to watch The Nun. Let’s hope if there are anymore movies in this franchise, that they select James Wan again and, the movie is on par with The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2.
2 out of 5 stars. Remember, it’s my opinion!
