Get thee to a nunnery? Perhaps not. Critics are not exactly giving their blessings to The Nun , the fifth installment in The Conjuring cinematic universe hitting theaters on Friday. The prequel, which is set two decades before Ed and Lorraine Warren undertook their paranormal investigations which kicked off the horror franchise, stars Taissa Farmiga as Sister Irene who finds herself sent by the Vatican to investigate the grisly hanging of a nun at a Romanian castle-turned-convent, what seems to be a suicide. Farmiga's character, just FYI, bears no relation to Lorraine, the role essayed by her older sister Vera Farmiga in the previous Conjuring flicks. Of course, this being a Conjuring entry, a splat won't stop those looking to exercise or shall we say exorcise? So before you go and say your Hail Marys, be sure and check out our roundup below of some of the more notable reviews:. But when it leans into its camp… The Nun comes closest to its ideal form of go-to midnight-movie. Update your browser for more security and the best experience on this site. Skip to main content.

A few weeks back, I was given an opportunity to watch the latest movie in The Conjuring universe called The Nun. This movie uncovers the origin story of Valak, The Nun from the 2nd Conjuring movie. After one becomes a victim of this demonic entity, the other nun takes her own life. Hearing about the occurrence, a priest with a haunted past and a sister that has yet to take her vows have to investigate. They travel to Romania, with the help of a guy named Frenchie, who discovered the body. After having to stay to investigate… terror ensues. Same thing with Father Burke, played by Damien Bichir. The other thing that I found, is it kind of felt somewhat rushed was the end. Even though there was an EPIC battle between all of the main characters, they rush out of it to explain how it all ties together with the series. After previewing the movie, I got a chance to sit and chat with director Corin Hardy.
Best wishes in whatever you decide. Unfortunately, it does not get easier, just different. It's a great idea to know where you stand so that you'll be prepared when this comes up in conversation. Unfortunately I've been sort of seeing a girl who is basically a real deal Mormon. Trust your instincts and your spiritual promptings.
