Thoughts on A Nun’s Curse
Characters – Ashley-Kae is a young woman that has been haunted by the mystery about a demonic sister that has been haunting her for years, she is on the journey with her sister in search for answers, going through historical sites along the way. Sister Monday is the nun that murdered prisoners and has been used to create fear in Ashley-Kae in her younger years, we are left wondering if she is still haunting the building. Gabby is the sister of Ashley-Kae who would rather be left to party, but knows this trip is part of the deal, she does start to get more inpatient along the way though. Anthony is the boyfriend of Gabby who doesn’t have any patience she has, he just wants to have sex and party along the way.
Performances – Felissa Rose as the evil nun works very well bring the star power to the role with ease, Erika Edwards as the leading lady being haunted does stand out of the group of friends. The rest of the cast does well without needing to do too much in the film.
Story – The story here follows four friends who go on a weekend away with a detour to investigate an abandoned location which is meant to be discovering the truth about a mysterious murderous nun. The story does follow the traditions of them going into a location, becoming separated and slowly going through horror moments, while diving into the history of the location. The story might well follow a routine, only it does end up with one of the weaker final acts in recent horrors, even if it does do something smart beforehand.
Horror – The horror in this film does work well, it is basic scares, with a lot of action going on in the background and having moments of gore when you least expect it.
Settings – The film uses the abandoned location of the jail which does give us the typical locations for haunted horrors, we find them stranded and being haunted through the movie.
Special Effects – The effects in the film do add some moments of horror, though we do get a moment that doesn’t look good for the most part.
Scene of the Movie – The Sister’s true action.
That Moment That Annoyed Me – The final act.
Final Thoughts – This is a horror that is one you can enjoy one evening, it might do most things you expect, even if it does give us a cop out in the final act.
Overall: Late night horror 101.
