Movie Review – The Nun

Sit back, relax, and pull off your habit. It’s time for The Nun to have some fun. Seriously, I’ve been waiting for this movie since the day I was born. I felt it in my bones. The Conjuring Universe has consistently been one of the greatest franchises ever put to film. The amount of expectation for each new release is kind of like the feeling you get when you buy a new car. You sit there and take a deep breath in and smell the newness. They always give us something new, but still remain true to the ongoing saga. I’m in love with it.

The Nun is a prequel to the main Conjuring franchise, expanding on a character that was first mentioned in The Conjuring 2. The way that the makers tie all of these films together is so refreshing and new that I can’t praise them enough.

The setting of The Nun is awesome. It was filmed entirely in Romania. Visiting there has been on my bucket list for years. I felt like I was there. Now I really want to go. The Abbey that they were in was breathtakingly creepy and beautiful. I have no complaints about the movie. You’ll enjoy the many scream scenes. The makeup job on The Nun is spot on. There are a ton of jump out of your seat moments. The season of horror movies is just now starting, so I recommend this one to get your Halloween spirit into high gear.

Grade: A

About the Peetimes: The Nun is a really short movie. I 100% recommend the Peetime at the beginning of the movie. There is a 2nd Peetime listed later, but that should only be used for emergencies. 

Christene Johnson (RunPee Sis)

RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.

Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
