‘The Nun’ falls back on the same mistakes as the first Annabelle

Hopefully it will continue following Annabelle’s footsteps if a sequel is made. “The Nun,” directed by Corin Hardy, is yet another installment in the Conjuring franchise and follows Sister Irene (Taissa Farmiga, sister of Conjuring star Vera Farmiga) and Father Burke (Demián Bichir) as they’re sent to a Convent in 1952 Romania by the Vatican to […]
