I have, since the fall of 2015 when I mastered “Insidious: Chapter 2,” been a big fan at mastering the scariest movies that have been produced.

Many of these films have failed to scare me to a satisfactory degree.

I’m always looking to see more of them.

I saw “The Nun” with my roommates on Sept. 9, and I survived it, as did they.

Ultimately, I would say that it is more a thriller than a scary movie.

However, it did have plenty of jumpscares and intense moments if that is what you are looking for.

It is the perfect movie for someone who is down in the dumps and looking for excitement.

It takes place at an old castle in Transylvania where a demon preys on nuns with a malevolent agenda.

The castle stands surrounded by dark woods, which is probably what most people imagine when they think of a Transylvania.

The most thrilling aspect of the film is the setting.

Most of it takes place in an area that is not only is in a very remote location, but one that has not conformed to the modern world.

It is a unique setting that really adds to the movie.

The castle is also ancient and has been experiencing horrors for centuries.

The climactic battle of the movie is also pretty exciting to watch.

There is another reason to check out this movie, and that is its connection to the “Conjuring” movies.

The movies in the “Conjuring” franchise deal with the ramifications of what happened in “The Nun.”

If there was one thing I could say about this film, it is that it is surprisingly more exciting than scary.

When you have enough free time, such as on the weekend, you should invite some friends to go see “The Nun.”

It is a movie I believe is worth watching, and you will have no regrets.

It is probably still in theaters so you should go as soon as possible.

It’ll probably be gone from there soon.

Many of my friends are not convinced, which is too bad, as I think they would enjoy it very much.
