7 Movies to watch if you like The Nun


The idea of religion and God is the epitome of purity and chastity. We tend to believe in all forms of energy. If there exists a God, there comes the devil, known by various names in literature, but the most famous one is ‘Satan,’ the King of Hell. Many directors drew inspiration for paranormal movies from such experiences.

Today, paranormal research is a field though pseudo-scientific. It helps us explain the unexplainable. One movie that was a part of the Conjuring series but not exactly a part of the series, but was equally scary was The Nun. With a scary nun waiting to pop up on the back of your mirror, you are in for unlimited jump scares and a spine-chilling storyline.
