Comments

  • I honestly thought the movie was pretty good, not many good jump scares but the movie was good I thought

  • Your shirt is that of epic proportions.

  • please everyone go see suspiria...that looks like a dam good supernatural horror! they did a remake and it actually looks good.. and halloween maybe..i'm seeing both...releasedin october.. so sad i was hyped about the nun...too forgettable.. i'll check later in october to see if there are reviews for Suspiria and halloween

  • i was disappointed... the nun was so brief but sooooooooooo scary in conjuring two especially the hallway part... this movie was just ok.. more of an action suspense.. the first conjuring was pretty scary and part 2 was creative and scary too..this movie needed more..and to be as long as the first 2 movies..

  • I completely agree. I've been waiting for this movie and it was disappointing. I've been waiting for The Nun, Predator and Halloween. Predator and The Nun were disappointing, I'm so freaking worried about Halloween. Hopefully it won't fail.

  • Ya i would have given the same rate because it isn't that good as u mentioned

  • Well it was not perfect,but at least imo was entertaining

  • Really disappointed with the movie because i love the conjurings story and was looking forward this :(

  • It’s a great comedy.

  • Wait until you see the Priests! Make sure you don't have your kids around!!! 😶

  • What is the scariest movie you have seen and would recommend?

  • I watched it yesterday with my friends, since this is my first horror movie, I screaming like a little bitch.

  • Taissa Farmigia's character dug that priest out of six feet of dirt within minutes! She is much stronger than she looks!

  • The Conjuring was one of the best horror movies of the decade, so of course it has to be milked to death. The Conjuring 2 was decent, but all the Annabelle movies and now this...blech. I'm not watching this. I won't be back until James Wan is done with Aquaman and does a Conjuring 3 himself.

  • I actually liked the main three caracters they are very likeable

  • I left after 40 minutes in...the audience were morons or mainly these young girls took advantage of the jump scares to scream and natter away for the run time I was there.

  • 666 dislikes...

  • Anyone please name me a horror film that's actually good pleased

  • Worst movie ever left theater 2/3 in the movie horrible waste of time

  • Yay! The old thumbnails are back!!

  • I thought the conjuring series's mediocre movie imo. there's some jump scare though. There's also a Russian movie which I liked but not so scary, "The Bride" where the beginning showed potential to be scarier, and then American "The Nun" .. same premise.

  • I hated this move, not scary, over acted, no story, more funny than it is scary. 2/10 because i laughed my ass off at the effects and the dumb plot

  • HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAH cool!

  • If a horror movie fails to scare me when watching it on my small tv in my living room, then I don't consider it scary. Jump scares, while effective in a huge theater with a powerful sound system, are not truly troubling and rarely stay with you once the movie is finished. Sadly The Nun is a movie I forgot as soon as the credits rolled.

  • We should start a petition to have Gary Daubermann removed from horror film writing. IT Part 2 has me worried, Part 1 was a massive miss fire, can't say I have much faith in his future projects. He's almost like the Zack Snyder of horror film writers. Loads of promise, very low percentage actual execution, and while I can accept that studio's have a tendency to get in the way of projects being all they can be, its hard to believe that its so routine that the people making the thing shouldn't bare at least some responsibility.

  • The predator review? Or the nun review hmmmmmm misleading title

  • Damn I also love the conjuring universe and I can't wait for conjuring 3 because James wan is doing that. But man the nun was disappointing I really wanted to like this movie but its bad

  • “Feels like the demon is just playing pranks on them” , lol spot on review. Just saw it, I was rather disappointed

  • So is this not directed by James wan? If not there's the reason it's lame.

  • I hate movie critics. If they were so knowledgable in film they would make their own movie. But nope, they dont know shit.

  • They need to make a vr cinema so I can look where I want to look movies like this would be sick on vr

  • This movie could've had potential tbh.

  • Saw it yesterday. Et was tame and not scary

  • Does anybody know where Chris gets his t-shirts from?

  • I was really looking forward to this movie, but it was quite a dissapointment. I agree, it was a pretty bad movie. The nun was scarier in the Conjuring 2 than in the Nun. The movie was not scary at all... and the comic relief in the film happened way to often to let you even be in the mood to feel any tension or worry for the characters. Everything seemed too farfetched to even be believable. The conjuring movies are told in a way that is supposed to make you think the story is based on a true horror story, but this was just too silly. They have nuns praying to keep evil locked in the castle, and somehow they got ahold of the an ancient artifact that holds the blood of Christ... what?...just too ridiculous. The only thing they did well in this movie was connect the end to the Conjuring films. I paid for the Imax version thinking better sound would make the atmosphere more scary, but it was not worth it.

  • Does anybody on earth remember a movie called La Monja (2005) by Luis de la Madrid?

  • Did you ever review Martyrs? The 2008 movie, not the 2016.

  • Hello chris 😁 I love all your movie review especially horror because i love horror movies..sorry for my bad english..love from malaysia..keep it up the good work brother 😍😍😁😀

  • I liked it but do say how you could've made it better.

  • .....IM FRENCH CANADIAN

  • 1:05 - 1:08, creepy af

  • Watched this movie a week ago in theater which had exchange students and local high school students on every seat. I thought i was going to watch the movie been played to me but it actually turned out that i watched all these kids acting and playing to me. Since i was double their age and only adult in that room, they put on their best show: constant screaming, throwing popcorn, kicking the seats, giggling, crouhing in front of the screen and general overacting of cool behaviour... The movie sucked and todays youth are bunch of posers.

  • This is supposed to be the origin story of the demon but it has what, 5 minutes of explaining what it is and where it came from? Maybe even less. Seems like a shame go me

  • I was not impressed with the conjuring movies. This one never even looked decent from the previous. Pass

  • I totally agree with you. This movie could have been great. What a waste!

  • Maybe u should stop watching movies i jus watched 3 of yur videos and u didnt like any of the movies maybe u should direct yur own movie stupid

  • I thought the movie was crap and I couldn’t agree more

  • Valak the ultimate prankster.

  • Yeah it could have been SO much better.

  • Reminded me of old Italian horror B movies

  • Very bad movie. The only real jump scare came from a crow.

  • I just watched this movie last night and it was very VERY disappointing. The story was seemed lazy. Also they tried to be inject humor that just fell flat. I expected a good story/plot & character development like what we got with Annabelle Creation...not the case here.

  • For people who hated "Hereditary", here is "The Nun". You'll enjoy it.

    • Feline Fatale i love the sarcasm haha.. hereditary still the best horror movie of 2018 so far..

  • I'm sorry you couldn't enjoy this movie, Chris. I really enjoyed it though

  • This is why I don’t like spinoff films Annabelle was 100x worse than this though. But this was such a poor attempt. I feel like it was rushed and over hyped from the advertising on social media. Can’t wait for the Halloween movie coming.

  • Every word u have said is so true , this film could have been very awesome but they just messed it up

  • I really didn’t like the priest in this movie. You could’ve taken him out and the movie would’ve been nearly unchanged. Also, it feels disjointed from all the other contouring movies. I didn’t like Frenchie and the main female character started nicely but ended up falling flat for me. Just pretty disappointing considering I had highish expectations and it could’ve been so much better. I wish they could recapture the horror they had at the very beginning of the first Annabelle movie (but not the rest of the movie)

  • So many film critics are uptight; they overanalyze and don't know how to let themselves have fun. Chris is no exeption. Go enjoy the scares!

  • Eerie religious themes. Creepy, fun film. Just remove the stick from your ass, suspend disbelief, and let yourself have fun!

  • Am I the only person who actually likes this movie?? 😂😂

  • Horror movie these day are just full of cheap unnecessary jumpscare, and that's not how the horror movie works .

  • I'm not a Conjuring fan so I had no urge to see The Nun. I'll check it out on redbox down the road. It has been a terrible summer. I really hope Halloween doesn't suck total ass. Looks pretty good.

  • Friend of mine told me her theory on the horror movie ghost/demon/monster hiding and only doing little things to begin and going big in the third act. Here goes; first the little "pranks" are to get the measure of the group and bolster belief in the monster to make it more powerful on a psychological level (scared people make stupider choices) then after choosing a target from the group it separates them from the herd with more supernatural noises so the braver targets run off to inspect the noises alone making themselves vulnerable to attack then the monster can repeat this process until all the strong are dead and there's only a couple left. However by this time their is usually only the final girl left but she has gone through alot and come out the other side stronger unbeknownst to the monster. Now the monster's initial intel is wrong and because of this it underestimates her and utilizing this she takes the advantage and defeats the monster. That's just the broad strokes I left out a couple of things because this comment is long enough.

  • I like the expression chris give review about movie. Hahaha yes agree this year movie abit down

  • I actually really liked the nun tbh I jumped out of my seat at a few of the jumpscares. I didn’t think I would because of the reviews but because I haven’t watched every single horror movie ever lols

    • +Chloe D That's literally not grasping what the problem is.

  • We had a full theatre at 10 pm show. It was supposed to be frightening but the whole theatre couldn’t stop laughing.

  • Yeah I was excited to see it, but it's so disappointing.

  • The accents where so awful tho

  • You should review Mandy with Nicholas Cage!!! 😉

  • So who doesn't like a good prank?

  • the nun the ladyboy from Romania

  • Completely accurate review i thought the movie was jus dull and tastless absolutely dissapointing

  • I came for the review and left wanting the T-shirt.

  • "It's a film with noises" Review 100

  • what about a horror movie that involves a common setting with people making actual rational decisions? u know how everyone always says horror people r stupid cuz they do the most stupid things, what about a movie where do the sensible thing but theyre still screwed.

  • as usual, another movie advertised as a horror movie but its actually a comedy

  • Just saw it, and I almost fell asleep. It was quite boring and repetitive. Just as underwhelming as Annabelle. All I need right now is a Conjuring 3 film directed by James Wan.

  • I fucking love Taissa.

  • I loved the movie

  • I've brought an online ticket today and am seeing it tommorow. I somehow regret it 😂

  • I really like your reviews man. Exactly what I need to hear before I go to or avoid a film.

  • Nun gets creampied

  • I saw this film tonight and I thought it was amazing!It was action packed,had it’s scary moments,and was very tense!Highly recommend it! Edit: I’ve seen all of the conjuring universe films and this might be my favorite!please respect my opinion.

  • The Nun: a B-horror, action-comedy in disguise.

  • The Nun. Another disappointment of the year, after The Predator. Even though I never wanted to see them

  • I didn’t think it was that bad

  • Hey Chris, what do you think they could have done with this film if it were directed by James Wan instead of him being a producer?

  • the plot was very loose/non-existence/inconsistent/random (like a child pasting a bunch of random ideas together).For example, we are told that the young nun had visions as a little girl, but it had NOTHING to do with the plot - it was simply used as the reason for how she saved the priest from the grave. They tried to reference the visions later when she was praying with the nuns who later turn out to be non-existant, but OFCOURSE they weren't real!! NONE of the nuns inside the church were, and we all know it - and THEY all know it - from the very beginning! The ending also...super random lol *but still is fun to watch with friends - the worst the movie, the more fun to watch*

  • Your review irritates me

  • to add insult to injury: the goddamn nun puns from unfunny internet dweebs

  • Not trying to be an asshole but I kinda saw this coming, Hollywood milking some side character and turning into a movie (a not succesful movie)

  • endless jump scares really are some people's idea of a good horror film lol

  • I just watched this yesterday. It was ok. Only problem I had was that it felt too predictable. And no I don't mean the ending was predictable. I mean that you'll pretty much know what was gonna happen next, if you've seen enough horror films. Ex: "Hey look the cameras panning down a lot in this shot, pretty sure when he gets up something will be there" *Camera pans back up* *Something is there to scare you* "Yup I was right." Too predictable. And some parts seemed too last minute. Like they were stuck in that scene and couldn't think of a way to end it so they just said fuck it and rolled a dice that decided the outcome. I would rate it a 4/10.

  • I think dey did a great job with da nun

  • You sound super bummed

  • This year 90% of films suck😑

  • When you said the Nun was pulling pranks all I could think of was Jackass: Nun edition haha.

  • Love from India. I just saw the movie and trust me there are a lot of funny scenes... the review is true. Only noises

  • Review iron fist season 2

  • It was pretty disappointing to me
