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

I recently ordered it by cable TV, surprised not to have come across it before. 5ive Girls hadn't been released in a cinema around me and never been advertised on TV so i was wary of watching it.
The was some what easy to understand but at some parts it was difficult to follow the plot as SOMETHING was missing but i just don't know what. It seems that these days there are too many films out that just have a quality about them missing. One thing about this film that wasn't missing was emotion, there was a lot of it happy and sad...
However the acting was just not able to pull off the emotion the writer was obviously trying to portray. One major thing that made the film get right on my nerves was the make-up, it was too over done if you watch it you will totally see.
There were some really good parts, like the special effects however it is greatly weighed down by the cheesy teen lines and the high pitch annoying school girl voices... If your bored just watch it but its nothing special.
