Storyline

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. Written by Warner Bros.

Goofs

(at around 11 mins) When Father Burke and Sister Irene arrive at the house of Maurice, you can see a white light switch on the outer wall of the house. This is highly unlikely because houses in most villages in Romania in 1952 did not have electricity and relied on petrol lamps. National electrification of villages began in the '60s. See more »

This movie sucked.
13 January 2019 | by lewismusgrove88See all my reviews

I wanted to like The Nun but damn this movie was garbage. Sure it was shot nicely and the acting was fine, but good grief the story was dull as dish water. Full of cheap scares and a dumb, dragging plot. The nun character was far scarier in The Conjuring movies.
