The movie's twist ending is also rather forced, and it negates the basic plot of the film.
Michael Butts
Besides the predictable plot, this movie has some of the silliest, campiest dialogue ever written and the situations ae shockingly laughable.
Javier Bryan Sanchez
Anyway, this movie might be worth a rental in the end maybe, just don't be expecting anything mind blowingly fantastic.

I had a hard time deciding whether i should rate this film with one or five stars. the bottom line is that this is not a bad film, it's an absolute disaster of a film. BUT, this is so bad it's good. I saw this at the movies last night hoping for a little scare, and instead I had a good hearty laugh from beginning to end.

if you are older than 13 years old, and if you have more than 5 working brain cells, THE NUN will be as scary, believable or logical as an episode of "Scooby Doo".

The idea is not bad: Spirit of dead nun seeks revenge on former boarding school girls, giving them the brutal deaths women saints suffered.

The production values are strong: the sets look fantastic, music and mood are great. Most of the acting is even passable. However, this movie has more holes than a slice of swiss cheese: This is a Spanish production in spoken English, and the language-culture inconsistencies are very distracting. Some of the special effects are cool, but most of them are annoyingly amateurish, and the scares are all just like someone screaming "boo" as they jump from behind the door.

The script is its worst flaw. Besides the predictable plot, this movie has some of the silliest, campiest dialogue ever written and the situations ae shockingly laughable. Example:

ZOE: "I have no intention of dying burned in an oven!!!"

(moments later)

ZOE: "I am going to the kitchen"

Yes, this was a terrible movie. But we had so much fun watching it I feel this movie deserves a life as a midnight movie, or slumber party entertainment.

The Nun (or La Monja) seemed to have all kinds of potential. I mean, who doesn't want to see a movie about a nun who returns from the grave to kill the girls she hated so much when she was their teacher? Here, the Nun can only manifest in water, which even gives the film an odd little angle to call its own. Throw in some pretty good special effects and an effectively creepy atmosphere, and you start asking yourself why this film was denied a theatrical release. Then you watch the film, and the reason eventually becomes clear - The Nun is cursed with a relatively poor script and a really lame ending. I found this particularly disappointing because I had truly admired the scripts of Jaume Balaguero in Darkness and The Nameless.

The story really starts eighteen years in the past, where we watch Sister Ursula give her class of female students a tough lesson on the wages of sin. She's particularly unhappy with Mary, Cristy, Susana, Zoe, and Eulalia because they just aren't living up to the standards of the saints they supposedly share their names with. Back in the present, we are treated to a well-paced, atmospheric scene culminating in the death of Mary - the special effects of the water-borne Nun are really quite impressive here. Having witnessed the culmination of her mother's death, young Eva (Anita Briem) soon finds herself in the middle of an unbelievable mystery. In short order, after an old classmate of her mother's is similarly murdered, and she finds evidence that her mother was planning a trip back to Spain to visit her other boarding school friends, Eva insists on taking the trip herself and finding out why and how her mother truly died.

It's a low-budget spooker, but "The Nun" was actually better than I thought it would be. The actors were very good, the story moved along nicely, and there were some interesting plot points that added to the overall story. The killing scenes were brief, and the nun herself -- in all her hideous watery glory -- was actually done well. The ending was a little disappointing because it seemed rather "rushed", but otherwise I enjoyed this film. You don't to buy this one, but it's a good escapist view for an hour or so. It's certainly better than a lot of so-called horror films out there.

Nun is chilling film, with deliciously devilish special effects, a fast script, and well executed acting. In it, Eve, an innocent eighteen year old that just graduated high school comes home from a party to find her mother's throat cut, and she sees a nun at the scene of the crime. Of course no one believes her, until the funeral, when she meets a mysterious woman that knew her mother years ago. So begins a frightening tale of judgment, murder, and revenge.

The special effects were well done and engaging. Since the nun can only appear in water, and only appears to certain people, some of the images are quite interesting. The plot moves extremely fast. So many people are murdered it feels brutal, and leaves you wondering just who will be left at the end of the movie. The ending is surprising and leaves you with that `nice twist' feeling.

Over all, Nun is a slick horror movie that's far better than many that have made it to the big screen in the past few years (Fog, Cursed, and Darkness, for instance). So if you're looking for a fun and stylish horror movie, then check out Nun. You won't be disappointed.

Highest recommendations.
