Quotes

Brother Timothy: And I also managed to procure a pope's skull, just like the one in Brother Orsini's office
Brother Martino: Which pope is yours?
Brother Timothy: Why, Pope Paul the Eighth, of course.
Brother Martino: That's impossible; the one in Brother Orsini's office is the skull of Pope Paul the Eighth.
Brother Timothy: So? What's your problem?
Brother Martino: How can there be two skulls of the same pope?
Brother Timothy: Why bless you, it's perfectly simple. The pope's skull in Brother Orsini's office belonged to Pope Paul the Eighth when he was an 86 year old man; and mine is of Pope Paul the Eighth ...

Good, creepy religious chiller
26 December 1999 | by (Elgin, Ontario) – See all my reviews

Originally filmed in 1988 under the title Catacombs but not released until 1993 due to the production company's bankruptcy, Curse IV is a surprisingly entertaining film. Under the direction of frequent Charles Band collaborator David Schmoeller, the film creates a strong feeling of unease early on and keeps the suspense going fairly strong throughout. Feodor Chaliapin is especially memorable as a dying priest. He comes across with just the right amount of sincerity so that one could honestly see him as a man of the cloth. While far from the greatest film to come out of Empire Pictures, Curse IV is still a fun movie that is worth a look sometime.
