Review: The Nun

Ever felt like you needed an origin story for one of three random monsters in that stupid horror movie from 2015? Me neither. Before the events of The Conjuring 2, the demon Valek tormented a chapel in Romania. When one of the nuns at the chapel kills herself, a priest and a young girl go…

Hype can really kill a movie.

But when they find the cabin to now be the site of witchcraft, and find a…
