Goofs

When Moebius throws that burning paper bag down the well in Miriam's cellar, you can see a stick attached to the bag, "sliding" it down the way. This had to be done, because the well was built horizontally to make filming easier. See more »

'Rosemary's Baby' on crack?
8 January 2002 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

'The Sect' is a profoundly strange Satanic thriller. Directed by Dario Argento protege Michele Soavi (best known for the zombie movie 'Dellamorte Dellamore'), and co-scripted/co-produced by Argento himself, this shares the surreal, dreamlike feel of 'Suspiria' or 'Inferno', but without their distinctive stylish atmosphere. At times it appears to make no sense at all, especially the bizarre sequences using insects and animals, but it always holds your interest, and is certainly original and worth watching.

Kelly Curtis plays the sexy but nice schoolteacher who finds herself the centre of an evil cult who have big plans for her. Horror veteran Herbert Lom ('Mark Of The Devil', 'Asylum', etc.) is a mysterious old man who she befriends after nearly accidentally running him over. Can he be trusted? Can Miriam's pet white rabbit be trusted? And what exactly do subterranean wells, a Manson-like hippie killer, evil storks, Lewis Carrollesque dream sequences, and sticking extinct earwigs up people's noses have to do with it all? I'll leave you to work it all out.

A very freaky but entertaining movie that will probably become a future cult classic. Highly recommended.
