So, finally, The Nun is released in Malaysia and I went on to watch it during the premiere.
The Nun, James Wan, Horror Movie, Valak, Movie Review by Rawlins, Rawlins GLAM,
I  just couldn't wait for the weekend to watch the horror flick. Thanks to my bestie, Ms Paris for the tickets to the movie and to learn the origin of the stressfully frightening and evil ghost Valak that we first saw in The Conjuring 2

SYNOPSIS

The movie started with two Nuns opening a door that leads to one of them ended up being pulled into the darkness and leaving a key to the other one. Running with the key, the escaped nun went into her room and when a dark nun-like figure moving towards her room, she jumped from her window with a rope tied around her neck.

The Nun Trivia

  • Produced by: Peter Safran & James Wan
  • Story by: James Wan & Gary Dauberman
  • Distributed by: Warner Bros. Pictures
  • Running Time: 96 min

Her almost-unrecognizable corpse was only found weeks later by Frenchie, a local that has been entrusted to send food supplies to the abbey from the nearby village.

Mistaken the case as a suicide,  the Vatican send for Father Burke and Sister Irene, a novice, to investigate the case in the abbey in Romania. With the assistance from Frenchie, the trio went into the abbey to look for evidence of the suicide case. The duo learned the history of the abbey - it was a castle owned by an evil-worshipper but the church managed to subdue him before he summoned a great dark and evil spirit. However, the spirit still roams the castle/ abbey to look for openings to start messing with the world. In order to keep the spirit in the underworld, the Nuns pray non-stop and the act has been successful thus far.

I've told you, ladies, I mistakenly read the signs. I thought it was the mens' room. Sorry but I have glaucoma.

I have to do my make-up in the dark, so please pardon the creepy look.
The abbey was supposed to be empty but the trio was greeted by the 'Reverand Mother' upon their entry into the abbey. Frenchie was asked to return to the village and the duo stayed the night in the abbey. 

And not soon after Father Burke sleeps, the haunting begins. The duo has to fight furiously as their opponent is stronger than any problems they have faced before.
The Nun, James Wan, Horror Movie, Valak, Movie Review by Rawlins, Rawlins GLAM,
Where are you Valak? Here's a lamp so that you could do a better make-up.
Will the duo (or trio) be able to stop the spirit from menacing the abbey and soon the village?

MY REVIEW

Plot: 3.7 / 5.0. I was actually looking forward to learning about how Valak came into being. But this movie is about the spirit of Valak wanting to look for a mortal body to possess so that it can menace the world. I was a bit disappointed but still try to enjoy the movie. Somehow I can tell that the movie is not directed by James Wan as it lacks the scare scenes that I thought could be bigger and scarier. The plot is somehow predictable (as I keep on comparing to the first Conjuring). 

Cast: 4.0/ 5.0. I have no complaint whatsoever about the cast. Each played their part convincingly. 

Will I watch it again: I would but not in the cinema. To me, the script was a bit mellow and some of the scenes transitions was quite abrupt that somehow is disturbs the continuity of the storyline. It is a good horror movie but it could do much better, with all the hype going around about the movie.

Ini termasuk dalam kategori cerita yang saya sekeluarga jauhi. Tak minat tengok cerita seram dan tahyul mahyul. Anak anak pun jadi penakut.

Ohh macam tu ke plot nye.
Kalau cerita seram, kurang babak suspense, memang kurang seram lah jawab nya.
