The Nun #MovieReview

The product(s) featured in this review were provided free of cost to me by the manufacturer or representing PR agency for the sole purpose of product testing. Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation. 

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.




MY THOUGHTS

I do love a good horror movie and I did love The Conjuring so I was excited to see The Nun.

Unfortunately, I found this movie to be bland.  The story could have been way better and I really didn't find it scary or that creepy really.  I didn't even jump once.  

I am very disappointed with this one. 

I am giving this 2 1/2 out of 5.

MY THOUGHTS

I watched and reviewed season one last year and I was so very impressed that I couldn't wait to watch the next season but unfortunately, we weren't able to because we don't get the channel it plays on so when I received season two to review I just couldn't wait to watch it.

Season two is just as good as the first season and it is one of those shows we just couldn't stop watching.  Some nights we ended up watching more episodes than we had planned. 

I just can't wait for season 3 to come out because I need to find out what is going to happen next.  

I do highly recommend this show.
