‘The Nun II’ is streaming on Max: Here are the best ways to watch

The Nun II — the next chapter in the story of The Nun and the latest in The Conjuring universe — is now on streaming.

While we thought Valak, the evil demon that casually disguises itself as a nun, was defeated at the end of The Nun by Sister Irene (Taissa Farmiga) and Father Burke (Demian Bichir), that is unfortunately not the case. The Nun II takes place four years later when mysterious deaths begin popping up throughout Europe. Once again, Sister Irene is tasked with taking on Valak and attempting to get rid of them once and for all.

Farmiga is joined again by Jonas Bloquet as Maurice, along with Storm Reid as Sister Debra, Anna Popplewell as Kate, and Bonnie Aarons as the titular demon nun. The film was originally released in theaters on Sept. 8 (and is still in select theaters nationwide) and met with mixed reviews. “The Nun II never quite reaches the terrifying heights of those early Conjuring films, but it does have more creepy moments than its predecessor,” Kimber Myers wrote in Mashable’s own film review.

If you’re looking for jump scares to add to your Halloween watchlist, The Nun II definitely delivers. Get a sneak peek at the sequel in the official trailer below, then read on to learn more about how to watch the newest addition to The Conjuring universe.

Where is The Nun II streaming?

You can still head to select theaters to watch The Nun II on the big screen, but as of Oct. 27, you can also watch the spooky flick from your couch. In order to stream it on the small screen, you’ll have to sign up for Max — HBO’s premium streaming service. Subscriptions start at $9.99/month and there’s currently no free trial, but we’ve rounded up your best options for saving money. Conveniently, every other film in The Conjuring universe (minus The Conjuring 2) is available to stream on Max as well, so you can plan a full movie marathon with a single service (which is more uncommon than you think).

Best Max streaming deals

Best for most people: save 17% on a Max With Ads annual subscription

Max annual subscription (with ads)

A basic Max subscription with ads will cost you $9.99/month and let you watch The Nun II (as well as other films in The Conjuring universe), then be on your merry way. If you remember to cancel before your month is up, you’ll avoid auto-renewal charges the following month. While this won’t exactly save you any money, it’ll prevent unnecessary spending. If you want more bang for your buck, you can save 17% by signing up for an entire year at once for $99.99. That breaks down to only $8.33/month instead of $9.99 and lets you watch as much as you want all year without worrying about canceling by a certain date.

Best with no ads: save 22% on a Max Ad-Free annual subscription

Max Ad-Free

For those who can’t stand dealing with ads, you can save even more if you opt for a Max Ad-Free annual subscription. It’s typically $15.99/month for the Ad-Free subscription, but when you sign up for a year instead, it’ll cost you just $149.99 (just $12.49/month). That’s about 22% in total savings and you won’t have to worry about canceling by a certain time to avoid automatic charges each month.

Max with ads

Existing AT&T customers on select wireless and internet plans are eligible to get Max for free as well. If you haven’t already, go check your account to see if you’re eligible.

Unfortunately, Max is no longer offered to new customers, so if you changed your plan recently or terminate your service, you’ll lose access.

If you purchased AT&T Fiber Internet 1000, 2000, or 5000 within specific date ranges, you also receive access to Max at no extra charge. The promotion ended on June 5, 2022, so if you’ve moved your service or changed your plan since then, your Max benefit is no longer valid.
