When a young nun at a cloistered abbey in Romania takes her own life, a priest with a haunted past and a novitiate on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate. Together they uncover the order’s unholy secret. Risking not only their lives but their faith and their very souls, they confront a malevolent force in the form of the same demonic nun that first terrorized audiences in “The Conjuring 2,” as the abbey becomes a horrific battleground between the living and the damned.
Corin Hardy delivers what is in my opinion the strongest entry in The Conjuring universe since The Conjuring (James Wan/2013). As with his impressive previous horror outing The Hallow, one of the standout horror films of 2015, Hardy’s THE NUN has more jump scares and sinister set pieces than it probably deserves! THE NUN is a satisfyigly delirious slice of demonic horror.
