31 in 31: Day 2 - The Nun (2018)


This year to celebrate the Halloween month I have decided to watch 31 Horror Movies that I have never seen before in 31 Days... 31 in 31. I love Horror Films, but instead of watching the standard classics and usual fan favorites (trust me... I will watch many of them TOO!) I am going to venture out into some uncharted territory with my selections. Wish me luck....

Day 2: The Nun (2018)



Title: The Nun (2018)
Director: Corin Hardy
Starring: Taissa Farmiga, Damien Bichir, Jonas Bloquet

My Review:

When you are about to watch a movie that is a spin-off of a sequel the expectations automatically dip a bit... but when the film is set in the world of the Conjuring franchise you might want to reconsider. James Wan and his team of producers/writers/directors score another positive win with The Nun. While Conjuring 1 & 2 are pure throwback horror magic, and Annabelle/Annabelle: Creation were both quite serviceable. The Nun falls somewhere in between those four films... perfectly situated right there in the middle. A period piece set in 1952, the majority of the film takes place at a remote convent in Romania. Plenty of jump scres, good background story for the Conjuring Universe and great acting from Farmiga & Bechir make this one pretty fun. I will certainly watch it again when it is released at home and have no regrets about paying box office prices to see it! 


My Rating: 3 out of 5 Stars
