Horror Mystery Thriller - This spinoff to the popular Conjuring supernatural horror series may offend especially sensitive Catholic audiences audiences due to its use of the title character as demonic presence. Bloody violence and disturbing imagery make the film not for kids. The most familiar face in the cast is Demian Bichir. This film has more humor than the others in The Conjuring series.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average "The Nun” feels like an empty thrill ride by comparison. Once it stops and you step off, you may still feel a little dizzy, but you'll have forgotten exactly why.

USA Today Full Review
Average ...most of the film is a disappointingly dull and arduous journey until then, a mix of slow-burn religious mystery and old-school adventure that egregiously fails to utilize its greatest hit: Bonnie Aarons' terrifyingly freaky villainess of the cloth.

Rolling Stone Full Review
Average A little of this stuff goes a long way, and a lot of this stuff doesn't go very long at all. True horror requires anticipation to work properly, but it's hard to anticipate anything when everything's already being thrown at us. The dread dissipates. Our screams become nothing but weary sighs.

Slant Magazine Full Review
Below Average ...essentially a series of disjointed freak-outs and red herrings, feels less like a fully realized horror film than the cinematic equivalent of a Conjuring-inspired maze at Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios.
