The Nun is a spin of from The Conjuring films with the premise that a monstrous evil was unleashed in Romania, contained by the Catholic Church, an Abbey build to defend against its escape and predation upon humanity, and the failure to do so. A suicide at the abbey brings the remote place and the danger of the evil to the attention of the Vatican and they send an exorcist to investigate. He teams up with a novitiate (nun in training) to confront the demonic power, and they are joined by a brave local. What follows for 3/4 of the film is a variety of scares such as being buried alive, possession, hallucinations, undead encounters and just about everything one can associate with overwhelming evil. It's OK for horror fans who are looking for a demonic possession film or a ghost story set in a religious setting, but there's little that you haven't seen before and done better.

From the conjuring series comes the newest demonic force. The Nun. First seen in the second film, it was determined that the character deserved it's own film. How they were wrong.

The film overall is good and links in nicely with the rest of the series however the story of the nun adds nothing to the franchise. Some good acting but predictable in places. Worth watching just for the connection to the franchise.

Visible crew/equipment: When water blurs the Father's word book, and the word deliveries appears, a woman appears to the right of him that appears to be a member of the camera crew, or possibly Irene, but she shouldn't be there either, because she is praying with imaginable nuns at that time.

Question: At the beginning, what was the old nun trying to do with the cross key in the dark room with the door that says "God ends here"?

Bunch Son

Answer: The nun was trying to find the relic. The deceased nuns had no actual idea where it was. That's the whole reason Irene was summoned by the Vatican because she had visions about "Mary pointing the way" also the "ghost nuns" more than likely have something to do with her clairvoyance as well.

Answer: Are you talking about before she opens the door? She's just making the sign of the cross, but using the same hand she's holding the key in.


I'm asking about what she was going to do in the dark room, what her plan was, what the cross key was for.

Bunch Son

It was to open the chamber that kept the vial of the blood of Christ so they could try to send Valak back to Hell.


The gateway to the relic was near the state of Mary, and it wasn't located inside the chamber seeing that Burke and Irene found the relic before crossing the passage leading to the chamber with the sign "God ends here." If there's someone who must have known where the relic was, it has to be the abbess. Then, why didn't she take it if she was going to?

Bunch Son

From everything I understood, the cross key opened the chamber that had the blood of Christ. The room with the sign "God ends here" was not the chamber I was speaking about. I was only addressing the question about what the key was for.
