Karen, Sarah, and Emma Tunney are all moving to a small town in Pennsylvania where, unknown to them, in 1913, a horrid mine accident trapped dozens of children alive, underground. But there's a problem. They're still alive.

In St. Marks catholic boarding school for girls, the religious student Elizabeth is attacked by evil forces and disappears from the classroom and the impotent Father Drake is incapable of saving her. The school is closed and five years later it is reopened. Five troubled unwanted girls - Alex, Mara, the blind Cecilia, Leah and Connie - are left by their family in the institution, severely directed by the headmistress Miss Pearce with hands of iron. Father Drake is their teacher and the girls are forbidden to go to the mysterious third floor. When Alex has visions of the possessed Elizabeth, weird things happen in the spot and the girls have to fight against a legion of two thousand demons. Written by

Cecelia (the blind girl) has a tattoo on her right forearm near the elbow. People normally get tattoos to be able to look at them. Being blind she would have had no way of knowing (unless someone told her) if the tattoo was the design it was supposed to be. See more »
Some sub-standard religious nonsense about five teenage girls at a finishing school that turns out to be haunted by demons. Mired in the middle of the mess is none other than Ron Perlman, doing his very best with the disappointing material and enlivening the screen with his presence whenever he appears - which is far too infrequently, unfortunately.
For most of the running time this is a cheesy variant on the likes of THE CRAFT, with the young actresses vamping it up and stripping at various intervals to keep the (male) viewers interested. As it's a B-movie about demonic possession, there's also a smattering of gore, alongside lots of cheesy/lousy CGI effects involving demonic goo being thrown around. None of it makes much sense and it's all very predictable and uninteresting; even the inclusion of some extra spicy corporal punishment fails to lift the spirits. Aside from a fun CGI demon this is pretty nonsensical.
