Two horror tales based on short stories by Edgar Allan Poe directed by two famous horror directors, George A. Romero and Dario Argento. A greedy wife kills her husband, but not completely. A sleazy reporter adopts a strange black cat.
Eight unsuspecting high school seniors at a posh boarding school, who delight themselves on playing games of lies, come face-to-face with terror and learn that nobody believes a liar - even when they're telling the truth.
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 »
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." "vereor ut hoc fiat" - Which you might think is "I fear that this might happen" - but actually means "I fear that this might not happen." - You see, paratactically it expresses a desire for something to happen, but syntactically it becomes the worry that it won't happen. ...

Enjoyable -- If you like sub par acting, directing and writing.
Ron Perlman and Jordan Madley are pretty much the only bright spots in this movie. The plot outline states that five girls confront Legion. It would have been far more accurate to state that five girls are individually stalked by Legion.
The acting was horrid, even for a B movie, and what decent acting there was in this film was obliterated by shoddy writing and talentless directing.
This receives a two star rating because of the admirable effort Ron and Jordan put in, in spite of the overall result. If you enjoy B movies, you may like this title, but if you are looking for a good supernatural thriller, this writer suggests Gothika.
