Young girls are disappearing in and around the Mary Magdalen Halfway House for Troubled Girls. Desperate to find out what became of her sister, Larissa Morgan goes undercover to infiltrate the Catholic-run institution. Once inside, she encounters Father Fogerty, a priest with a passion for punishment; Sister Cecelia, a nun with a dark past plotting an even blacker future; Edwina and her love-toy Cherry Pie; tough Latino Angelina and her home girls and a sinister handyman named Lutkus. It's not long before she's caught up in a twisted web of sadism, violence, and wanton lust before finally learning the ultimate secret of the Halfway House. Written by

Miskatonic University is mentioned by Ofc. Sheen to Larissa, who queries "where have I heard that before?" This is a reference to H.P. Lovecraft, who used this fictitious University in some of his stories, notably "Re-Animator." See more »

Practically garbage, but possibly amusing for some.
Arguablly one of the most perverted non-porno films to emerge in recent cinema. It is the kind of thing that makes you want to ask out loud 'what were they thinking?' Highly offensive, sexist, gross, and without a molecule of talent. At least the movie does not take itself seriously, making it watchable if taken as camp, but I estimate that only one out of every ten (or even twenty) people will find this entertaining.
After her sister disappears one afternoon, Larissa Morgan turns to the cops for help. She suspects something to do with, Sister Cecilia's halfway house for troubled girls, and comes up with a twisted plan to get some answers. She seduces a cop into sending her to the halfway house, pretending she is unstable. Her intention, to go under cover and investigate the place. Everything goes bananas; we get silly sex scenes, extreme profanity, sadistic morons, and a hungry alien in the cellar.
The Halfway House is junk, but it is not the worst movie out there. It has the potential to entertain but its audience isn't liable to be anything other than sex-crazed, ruffian teen boys. Everyone else will see The Halfway House as what it is, a lobotomized piece of sexploitation
