Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: The Nun boasts strong performances, spooky atmospherics, and a couple decent set-pieces, but its sins include inconsistent logic and narrative slackness.

Common Sense Says
Violent entry in Conjuring series feels rushed, dashed off.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Nun is the fifth movie in the Conjuring franchise (which also includes The Conjuring, The Conjuring 2, Annabelle, and Annabelle: Creation). Violence is quite graphic: Expect to see pools of blood, a river of blood, slashed skin, stabbing, dead bodies, bodies on fire, and blood-covered body parts. Characters die (both at others' hands and by suicide), and there's a scene with guns and shooting. The movie is also full of jump scares and scary images. Language is infrequent; there's a single use of "s--t," plus "God," "hell," and "Jesus Christ" in a faith-based context. There's brief flirting and light drinking (a glass of wine with dinner, beers in the local pub). This film sadly feels like a dashed-off quickie, without much effort put into it, but its characters and setting may still appeal to some horror fans.
