WARNING: MAY INCLUDE SPOILERS. DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVEN’T WATCHED THE NUN AND DON’T WANT IT TO BE SPOILED.

As my first movie review of 2019, I will be reviewing The Nun, which came out September 6th, 2018. I am very excited about reviewing this movie because it was one that I have been looking forward to watching it for months. Plus it is involved in the Conjuring universe.

The Nun is about a nun who took her own life at an insulated abbey in Romania. A priest and a young novitiate are then sent there to investigate. Together, they discover the horrifying truth of the abbey and what roams within it.

Sister Irene, played by Taissa Farmiga, and Father Burke, played by Demián Bichir, travel to Romania after a man named Frenchie, played by Jonas Bloquet, finds the body of a nun. As they uncover the history of the abbey, Father Burke is revisited by his past. A young boy named Daniel, played by August Maturo and Jack Flak, who died after he performed an exorcism on him, comes back and tries to kill Father Burke. He tries to do this by burying him alive and attacking him with a snake that came out of his mouth.

The special effects in the movie were amazing. One of my favorites was the nun’s sharp teeth with blood around them, it looked very real. The dead nun that hung herself also looked very realistic, with the makeup and blood on her. Out of all the special effects, the blood was the coolest and most realistic, mainly because they didn’t over do it and were very creative with it.

Throughout the movie there were tons of jump scares, some of which I didn’t see coming. One of my favorite jump scare was when Father Burke was in a coffin and the nun started attacking him out of nowhere. I thought that that was very cool and an excellent jump scare. Another one I liked was when the nun began attacking Frenchie in the woods like she did to Father Burke. I thought it was pretty creepy, but very cool.

The ending of The Nun is hands down my favorite ending I’ve ever seen. At the end, you see the scar of an upside down cross on Frenchie’s neck. We then go twenty years into the future where Ed and Lorraine Warren, played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, are showing a clip of an exorcism to a group of college students, one of which was the mother from the first Conjuring movie. This scene was also shown back in the first Conjuring movie. Ed and Lorraine explained to all the students what happened to Frenchie as the clip played. Tying it all together I thought was very cool and excellent idea/way to end the movie, plus we were finally introduced to the man in the clip without knowing it.

Overall, I’d rate The Nun a 9/10. It had amazing special effects and jumps scares, and the ending was phenomenal. There wasn’t anything that I thought could’ve been different or fixed, it was just an excellent movie overall.
