Ashdoc's movie review---The nun



The movie begins with a nun hanging herself in a monastery in Romania , and a member of the church committing suicide is considered a big crime by the Vatican . Hence two persons are sent by the Vatican to investigate this happening . They are Father Burke ( Demián Bichir ) and Sister Irene ( Taissa Farmiga ) . They are taken to the monastery by Frenchie ( Jonas Bloquet ) , who had discovered the nun hanging by a rope .

But Father Burke is still suffering from the guilt of having seen a boy who he had exorcised killed during the exorcism , while Sister Irene is only a trainee and has not been made a nun . The village near the monastery has seen numerous deaths and people living in it believe that the deaths are due to some evil in the monastery .

As the three make way to the monastery , obviously as expected a number of strange things begin to happen . One has to admire the daring of the two religious persons to stay in the nearby convent for the night , but they have no choice as the nuns there observe silence at night and are ready to talk only during the day .

At night the demonic entity attacks the two . The film makers have some new tricks up their sleeve , like shadows of ghosts walking on walls and live persons getting buried in graves . Some old tricks also , like the spirit being seen only in mirrors . But having seen too many horror films in the past , this time I seemed to be immune to the scares and wasn't getting the jolts at all . Lack of belief in the existence of ghosts and God seems to be the reason . I must really start believing at least in God to enjoy all these horror movies

Anyway , the movie is not bad . The three main protagonists soon learn about the demonic influence from the nuns in the monastery and try to seal it off back to where it was lying all these years . But do they succeed ? Watch the movie for the answer , but I will give you a hint ; these horror movie makers never ever bring their demonic influences to complete destruction as the demonic influences come mighty handy in making the next movie of the same franchise .

Photography , background music and acting is decent enough . And even if I didn't feel the chills some of you will feel them enough to enjoy them .

Verdict---Decent .

Three stars out of five .

Re: Ashdoc's movie review---The nun

Sounds Horrific

BTW, There is real life drama happening in the Nun and Bishop community in India, aptly being highlighted by Hindutva supporters. why watch the hollywood movie then?
