The Nun II enters theaters in a solemn procession, its ominous presence threatening to give you the chills. Yet it's challenging to avoid experiencing déjà vu as the gates of fear swing wide open. This follow-up to 2018's The Nun takes us back to the evil Valak, but rather than developing, it plays out like a trip to a well-known haunted house—eerie, but ultimately unsurprising. This episode of The Conjuring Universe, which is being directed by Michael Chaves this time, is drenched in the gothic supernatural horror that has come to be associated with the series, and it also features a revolving cast lead by Taissa Farmiga, Jonas Bloquet, and Bonnie Aarons.

But does it improve upon its forerunner, or is it only another hymn from the same vengeful songbook? Let's delve more deeply into The Nun II's sinful routine.
