The Nun (2018, dir. Corin Hardy)

A priest and a novice nun investigate an ancient evil linked to a convent. Daft sidequel to The Conjuring, following from a plot thread in the second movie. Good-looking in places, but po-faced and reliant on jumpscares over much in the way of narrative logic. For series completists only.

And here’s a second opinion from the 255Review crew.

 

 

Annabelle: Creation (2017, dir. David F. Sandberg)

A group of orphaned girls find a possessed doll in their new home. Superior prequel to Annabelle; this jump-scare offshoot from The Conjuring has some flaws in its script, but delivers in both period setting, design and some neat boo moments.
