Billed as the darkest chapter in the Conjuring universe (which includes the Annabelle franchise and both Conjuring movies), The Nun caused a lot of hype but ultimately failed to impress, scoring a disappointing 27 percent on Rotten Tomatoes – the lowest score of any Conjuring universe film to date, but according to actress Taissa Farmiga, the title character was plenty scary. The leading lady revealed that actress Bonnie Aarons would go out of her way to scare her between takes, often sneaking up behind her in the terrifying nun get-up worn by her character, the demon Valak.
Aarons had a blast on set, telling Coma Music Magazine, “Shooting the movie was a whole lot of fun, I love to entertain people and the demon nun has delivered quite a thrill.” Making Aarons (who describes herself as “gregarious, glamorous and gory”) look that scary didn’t take as long as you might imagine. “I am not wearing that much makeup, it was strategically painted on,” she said. “It took about one and a half hours. I wore a whole lot more makeup in the other films I have done.”
