Let me start this out by saying I love horror movies, both classic and modern. I enjoy the thrill of not knowing what's in store on the journey of visual based adrenaline, and pop thrills, and as always a good story is an added bonus. I truly loved all the Conjuring's and their in-depth plot lines, mixed with the suspense and terror we've all come to love, but there was something about the Nun. Perhaps, it was the 90's demon-turned-zombie theme, or the basic "Boom! Made you jump," concept, but either way it felt almost empty. The main plot line, while coexisting and intertwining with the other movies, seemed like a separate Evil Dead run off that wasn't actually contributing much to the saga. The idea was amazing, but the execution was poor.
       The Nun was overrun with early 2000's jump-scares, with an emphasis on jump. Everything from the CGI to the makeup is exactly what you expect from a Rob Zombie film, unfortunately this wasn't a Zombie cinematic. Instead, it seemed like the movie took all the worst parts of nearly every one of Rob's films and decided to incorporate them in their own fashion. The experience felt unauthentic, and nearly cheesy at best. I can't quite narrow down what my biggest pet-peeve is with The Nun, but I'm leaning towards the shotgun wielding French Canadian that took down more zombie demons than the priest with holy water and a relic of Christ. Then again, maybe it was the fact that Irene was a mirrored image of Lorene, from the many Conjuring's and Annabelle franchises, to the point that they both had "visions" and a similar background story, yet it was never mentioned or even elaborated on. 
       I don't mean to discredit and bash the entire movie, as it did have some decent scenes, a flowing story line, and it coincided with the other movies as well. At least it ended showing precisely how one of the most popular series began, and may even continue. I genuinely hope there is another, more conclusive, movie that can properly expand on our favorite, new and old, characters and their shady history. Perhaps we'll get the ending this rocky-roaded saga deserves. I'd love to hear some of your thoughts and opinions on this widely speculated and anticipated cinematic experience!
