THE NUN - Official Teaser Trailer
From 3 Reviews
Offers more than a few jump scares, if you're into that, but little else.
"Failed to create a memorable story"
THE NUN fails to live up to the best work of the Conjuring universe (The Conjuring, The Conjuring 2, Annabelle: Creation) because it focuses too much time creating the lore for the demon nun instead of creating a well-written story that is engaging to watch.
Filled with cheap jump scares and awkward characterization, the Nun failed to deliver anything actually scary. You may flinch at a few scenes, but there is nothing here worthy of nightmares. I’d rather just watch the Conjuring again.
"The two steps back after Hereditary's step forward"
This film was marketed using jump scares, and it offers plenty of those. But jump scares are only appetizers, and there is no entree here.
