Well how does that sound? Hope I did not give too much away on you here! That's right you are here to find out what I thought! Well, firstly I have to say that this movie did have a lot of scares which had you jumping in your seats. The story was decent but could have been a little stronger but seemed to carry itself. It started out good, the middle kind of dragged bait but finished off answering our questions we had. The characters could have been better developed and seems a little weak. And the acting was fairly weak as well. The scenery for the story was well used and helped build the effect and set the tone for the movie. All in all an okay movie but not spectacular! It lacked a few things to make it better. That is why I am giving The Nun a 6.0 on The Justin Scale Of Movies and placing it on my Flick-It List of movies to see out of the theatre. And that's a wrap here my friends on my latest movie review! Until next time! Keep that popcorn freshly poppe and save me a good seat because I will be seeing you at the movies!
