The Nun II" has received mixed reviews on Rotten Tomatoes as the first wave of critiques surfaces.

This sequel, continuing the story from 2018's "The Nun" and set four years after its events,

follows Sister Irene (Taissa Farmiga) as she confronts the demon nun Valak (Bonnie Aarons) once again.

Released on September 8, the horror film's Rotten Tomatoes score currently stands at 51% based on 67 reviews, indicating a lukewarm reception.

While this score is an improvement over the original movie's dismal 24% rating (the lowest in the entire Conjuring series), it still falls short of expectations.

Digital Spy: "The Nun II offers moments of horror brilliance amidst dull stretches. A significant improvement on its predecessor."

The Hollywood Reporter: "Eerie atmosphere and disturbing mayhem compensate for excessive screaming. A minor flaw in a well-crafted film."

Associated Press: "The Nun II disappoints with a paint-by-numbers plot, lacking the thrills expected. Audiences lost interest."

The Wrap: "Intermittent inanity hampers The Nun II's potential. Finally picks up in the absurdly entertaining final act."
