With its tight script, well-balanced characters, and bone-chilling scares, The Nun II is the first Conjuring spinoff operating at the same caliber as the franchise's core films, proving that this universe is far from played out.
If you’re expecting a totally original horror flick, you’ll be disappointed. If you’re looking for a film that cohesively fits into and helps explain the Conjuring universe, you should know better by now. But if you’re looking for nothing more and nothing less than a film where a barbaric nun slaughters everyone in its sight, well, look no further. Everyone else will be nun too pleased.
The result is a middle-of-the-table Conjuring universe film — one unlikely to make a dent in horror history, but well-constructed, with moments of inventive imagery, and that continues to cement Akela Cooper as a writer with a clear eye for freaky fun.
Logic, though, is not at the forefront of The Nun II which, like its predecessor, attempts to force the fear through endless jump scares and bombastic music rather than take time to build any real tension.
In neglecting to vary her routine, she is not unlike the film-makers behind this ninth visit to the Conjuring universe – although “universe” is a misleadingly large word for a franchise that is impoverished in all but its box-office gross.
La primera no me gustó, fue aburrida y lenta, esta secuela va directo al grano, es entretenida y con buenas dosis de tensión, pero la mayor parte del tiempo parece un Slasher anticlimático y no Horror Sobrenatural y la recta final se siente muy acelerada, incluso pareciera que se quedaron sin ideas y toda esa parte fue escrita sobre la marcha, la escena post créditos un desastre inservible.
Una película mejor que su predecesora en todos los aspectos pero que sigue siendo genérica.
The Nun II, in stark contrast to the first film, boasts a more intriguing story, but it will be remembered as a poor film due to director Michael Chaves' inept direction and the mutilation of the moments meant to be frightening in the editing process.
The plot of this movie is super previsible, throughout the movie I was saying for my partner who would die and survive and I got it right all my guesses.
Even the terror is super generic and cliche, always a terror scene in a dark room or empty corridor and most of them useless because they don't do anything for the plot.
Even the final battle is kinda ridiculous and how they defeat the devil.
Overall, I had a little fun but because I was literally laughing throughout the movie of how bad and previsible it was.
