The Nun 2 Movie Review

In the eagerly awaited sequel to “The Nun & The Nun 2,” director Michael Chaves attempts to bring a fresh perspective to the supernatural horror series. However, it’s safe to say that his efforts fall short of revitalizing a franchise that has already seen its fair share of mediocrity. Chaves, known for his previous works like “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It” and “The Curse of La Llorona,” adds another lackluster entry to his portfolio with “The Nun II.”

One of the most disappointing aspects of the film is the direction. Chaves, unfortunately, proves to be an ill-fitting choice to elevate the franchise beyond its ordinary beginnings. Having previously helmed two subpar horror films, he completes a less-than-enviable hat trick with this installment. The lack of innovation and fresh ideas in his direction is evident throughout the movie.

While the film boasts the talents of composer Marco Beltrami, known for his work in acclaimed films like “A Quiet Place,” “Logan,” and “Ford v. Despite its association with “Ferrari,” the film falls short in capturing the core elements that truly send shivers down one’s spine in a horror movie. Beltrami’s background score, while promising initially, quickly becomes predictable, mirroring the shortcomings of the storyline itself. The once-promising collaboration between director and composer falls short of delivering the spine-tingling experience that horror enthusiasts crave.

The Nun 2 overview

“The Nun II” offers little more than a rehash of tired horror genre clichés. Viewers will not only see the jumpscares coming from miles away but will also be able to predict every twist and turn, thanks to the film’s reliance on age-old tropes. While the film may satisfy die-hard fans of the franchise, it ultimately fails to bring anything new or memorable to the table.

As we eagerly anticipate the next installment in the horror genre, it is our hope that future directors and writers will take a bolder approach to breathe new life into this beloved series. Until then, “The Nun II” serves as a reminder that even the most promising franchises can fall victim to predictability and repetition.

A Missed Opportunity for Innovation

Despite the potential for innovation and fresh storytelling in the horror genre, “The Nun II” falls flat in its attempts to break free from the shackles of predictability. The film’s narrative struggles to offer anything groundbreaking or original, relying instead on well-worn horror tropes that have become all too familiar to audiences. It’s disheartening to see a franchise with such a rich and eerie mythology fail to capitalize on its own potential.

The film’s shortcomings are not solely the fault of the director and composer. The script itself lacks depth and fails to explore the deeper layers of the characters and the sinister world they inhabit. As a result, the audience is left craving a more immersive and thought-provoking experience. While “The Nun II” may provide a few fleeting moments of suspense, it ultimately fails to leave a lasting impression in a genre that thrives on pushing boundaries and delivering spine-tingling surprises.


In the realm of horror cinema, sequels often face the daunting challenge of living up to the expectations set by their predecessors. “The Nun II” is no exception, and unfortunately, it succumbs to the all-too-common trap of diminishing returns. While it may offer a temporary thrill for die-hard fans of the series, it fails to offer anything substantial to the wider horror-loving audience. As we reflect on this latest installment, it’s evident that the horror genre is in need of fresh voices and daring approaches to reinvigorate tired formulas. “The Nun II” serves as a stark reminder that even the darkest corners of cinema can benefit from a new perspective and a willingness to embrace the unknown.
