    I went to see The Nun in the cinema, and already, I wasn't expecting to be over the moon with the film. From the trailer, it already seemed like it'd be a jump scare heavy flick with characters that I may not necessarily care about and a villain that should have stuck within the frames of the Conjuring 2.…
