Goofs

The ending of The Nun shows the connection with The Conjuring (2013). The Warrens deal with a possessed man (played by different actor in The Conjuring). In The Nun, it is revealed that the guy Frenchie (played by another actor) in The Nun is, in fact, the possessed man in The Conjuring, and they use that actor in the closer shots, when we see his face, to make a clearer connection. However, when the shot is from further distance, the original actor from The Conjuring is clearly visible. See more »
