Spanish supernatural chiller full of thrills , screams , gore and eerie scenes
24 June 2012 | by See all my reviews

This scary movie was produced by the successful Catalan producers Julio and Carlos Fernandez from ¨Fantastic factory¨ that presents another spooky Spanish horror tale with a Nun as starring ; it displays relentless chiller , intrigue , shocks, hard-edged drama , plot twists , creepy images and some gore when crimes takes place .It deals with six teenage girls are boarders in a boarding school where they are horrified by a terrible nun (Christina Piaget) . Often tormenting her students with her own brand of extreme religious zealotry, this nightmarish nun was deathly strict with her code of ethics. When the nasty nun learns that one of her 15-year-old pupils is pregnant , she attempts to purify her . The students see as their friend is mistreated and decide to intervene . The nun was never seen again . Seventeen years later, the women (Paulina Galvez , Natalia Dicenta , Lola Marceli), all grown up , are terrorized by a spectre . They aware the fearsome nun has gone back , and is seeking avenge . Two of the group's survivors end up dead, which forces the rest of the old friends to face their own demons over what happened that fateful night . The daughter (Anita Briem) of one of them sets out to find out what happened . The only way to defeat the nun is to return to the location where it all began all those years ago , the boarding school. The group confronts the very thing that haunts their dreams and forever links them together in hushed silence.

Pseudo-slasher ghost story that finds an evil water-nymph nun seeking vendetta against her killers from years before . This frightening movie is plenty of thrills , chills , high body-count and lurid images with lots of blood and gore . It is an usual slasher where the intrigue , tension , suspense appear threatening and lurking in every room , corridors , boarding school and in a elevator , including some chilling frames . Special effects are pretty well but there are several scenes without much sense and the interpretations are middling . Interesting premise about a heinous nun is really wasted , being based on a story by Jaume Balagueró (notorious filmmaker of : Rec, Rec 2, Fragiles , Darkness , The nameless) who uses that uneasy non-knowledge for both horror and introducing a brief touch of black humor . It's a spooky movie produced by the Catalan producer Julio Fernandez who along with Brian Yuzna and Stuart Gordon created ¨Filmax Productions¨ , a successful Company in charge of production horror movies . The motion picture was regularly directed by Luis La Madrid , a slick editor of numerous films from Fantastic Factory such as ¨The machinist¨, ¨Darkness¨ ,¨Stranded¨ , ¨Faust¨ and ¨The nameless¨, among others . ¨The nun¨ is his only film , being professionally though regularly shot because containing some flaws and gaps . Rating : Average .
