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 »
Well, the placing of ideas in separate clauses, would have "I fear" - "vereor", alone, and then in another sentence there would be the thing that was to be feared, or desired - "ut hoc fiat" - "o that this might happen."

Five Girls is about five girls, some with special powers, who are sent to a catholic school for girls to get some discipline. After arriving, strange things start to happen and some of the girls start seeing visions. Maybe it's because the school has above the front door 'abandon all hope'. Ha ha, the words above the gates of hell. The head mistress is a real mean one and the priest worked at the same school before it closed down and he became a drunkard. Legion, the same set of demons that occupied one person from the Bible, takes over the characters and jumps from person to person. Kind of makes you wonder if legion was many why he didn't take over everyone at the same time, but There's more to the story, but it doesn't seem to help much. It's really just a bunch of cute teenage girls running around screaming. Some lesbian kissing, no real nudity. Some of the special effects were good, but it's not an A movie in any respect.
