“The Nun” is the origin story for Valak’s character and fails to capture the intensity of Valak’s portrayal in the previous films. Valak, who was introduced in “The Conjuring 2,” is shown to be a demonic presence that has attracted many to want to see this film, but there is nothing creepy about the film and the execution of the plot makes for a boring movie that has you leaving the theater with disgust.

“The Conjuring 2” is more realistic and eerie. The soundtrack suited Valak’s character as opposed to the soundtrack in “The Nun,” especially in the scenes building up before any dramatic scene would occur.

“The Nun” was very poorly played out and it wasn’t seen as a scary movie, even though the franchise has seen its fair share of success in horror flicks.

The jump scares in “The Nun” were pretty decent overall. The movie did seem to drag out in many different scenes, especially when sister Irene played by Taissa Farmiga was trapped in the church after being separated from Father Burke played by Demian Bichir and Frenchie played by Jonas Bloquet. Irene had to pray to keep Valak out no matter what commotion was going on around her.

Brand new characters filled the cast and it did not seem to connect to “The Conjuring 2” or even “Annabelle.” Valak’s relation to many of the latest cast was explained further along the lines of the movie, and dragged out. 

Something enjoyable that the audience will appreciate is the very ending when Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga reprise their roles as Ed and Lorraine Warren. The couple appear to connect the film to the “Conjuring 2” just like the Annabelle movies, which answers some questions we had, but still leaves many unanswered. 

The team responsible for creating the trailer deserve several awards for showcasing scenes filled with intensity and the promises of an exciting plot…. and then you see the movie and wish you had not wasted time or money.

With the transition from summer to fall, scary films appeal to us even more, but “The Nun” should not be a film to see. Yes the film sets a box office record for “The Conjuring” franchise, but the people tricked into seeing the film, probably will not want to see it again.
