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

When Alex first enters the school, you can see the framing of what is obviously a fake movie set wall reflected in the glass of the trophy case behind her. See more »
The telekinesis with the blood and water was a nice trick, Alex.
And what about you Leah? Walk through any walls lately?
[softly, almost ashamed]
It was a... filing cabinet.
Wait, you can walk through walls? I'm sorry, what are we still doing here?
Just objects. I can't leave a room... yet.
Okay, I'm with freaks...

5ive years after the strange and bloody disappearance of teenager Elisabeth at St. Mark's Catholic School for Girls, 5ive delinquent studentsAlex (Jennifer Miller), Mara (Jordan Madley), Cecilia (Terra Vnesa), Leah (Barbara Mamabolo) and Connie (Tasha Quintas)arrive at the establishment for some corrective education. Locked in, the girlswho all seem to possess supernatural powersbegin to notice sinister occurrences, and decide to investigate, ultimately discovering a plot by their headmistress Miss Pearce (Amy Lalonde) to trade their souls for that of Elisabeth, her sister, who was taken by the ancient demon Legion.
Just 5ive minutes into 5ive Girls and it was clear to me what sort of film this was going to be: a dumb piece of mainstream horror-lite aimed predominantly at a teenage audience. For the girls, there are 5ive cool, attractive, spunky characters with whom they can identify, while the guys get to drool over 5ive pretty actresses in their early 20enties dressed as Catholic schoolgirls. The film delivers very little in the way of genuine scares or decent gore, but does offer plenty of naff CGI effects and frequent inappropriate use of rock music, plus quite a few chances to ogle the young ladies: all 5ive wear knee high socks and thigh length skirts, Jennifer Miller bares some side boob, gets her bottom spanked with a ruler, and has a girl-on-girl kiss with Madley, while a topless Tasha Quintas gives viewers an eyeful while trying to drown Barbara Mamabolo in the bath.
Lending a modicum of star power to this cheesy Satanic nonsense is the unmistakable Ron Perlman (Hell Boy) as priest Father Drake, who winds up impaled by several crucifixes (it might have been 5ive, but I wasn't counting).
