Another horrific Installment of The Conjuring movie series
When The Conjuring movie came out, I knew it was one I had to not only see in theaters but I had to own it in my movie collection. The movie was creepy-spooky as ever and I never get tired of watching it. When the second movie came, I was just has happy. After all, it was in England. I can't say I was happy with the Annabelle movies. No, they sucked. But then after two greats, here's the absolute best! The Nun took me back to a day when horror was classic and beautiful.
So if you know the stories, you know this is no ordinary movie in a collection of movies. This is a story's beginning. It gave meaning to the nun spotted in The Conjuring 2.From what I recall, the figure was so creepy, they decided to make a movie on her, because who can incite terror more than the ones who are married to The One so holy?
I grew up on classic horror. As I’ve mentioned in past reviews, original horror is pretty much in my blood. So when The Conjuring franchise came out, I had to see them. They carried an ancient feel that passed from one movie to the other.
Now the Annabelle movies, to me sucked and weren’t horrific at all. But I can say they were creepy enough for me to watch and enjoy them. But The Nun is true to the storyline and stood strong.
With a win of $21.5 million over the cost to make it, The Nun brought passion, fear and the belief that if you aren’t good a nun will make sure you go to hell! Nah, I’m kidding but yes, it was creepy-scary! The Nun is set in Romania, at an actual abbey. When a sister of the faith is found hanged, the Vatican sends a priest to investigate. He’s also assigned a young nun who has yet to take her vows. Together, with a guide named Frenchie, they venture into the abbey. The place carries a terrible past and actually, the present isn’t much better.
When they discover they’re in for a battle against an ancient evil, they know they must seal a portal, using the blood of Christ before they can ever think of leaving for home.
The movie is fantastic. it feels old, haunting and evil. What makes The Nun such a great movie is the eerie feeling of impending doom. You know, watching them go in, that they are not going to have a pleasant visit to the abbey. it’s huge, dark and filled with a deathly past. There can be no good in such a place.
They made this movie like a Bela Lugosi flick. I watched in amazement more than fear. But I do hat quite a bit. The difference between those movies and The Nun is that this was really good horror. Scary, creepy and with little gore. You will enjoy this if you like good horror.
Check out The Nun. It’s released in iTunes already and will be available for purchase on December 4th. Cheers!
