Storyline

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 Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

the horrible dialogue kills it
18 July 2008 | by (...) – See all my reviews

from watching the trailer i expected some mystery thriller with religious aspects like e.g. stigmata and i have to say... judging by the first 25 minutes (i couldn't bear more), it seems like it really is that kind of movie. which is all the more reason for disappointment for me because i enjoy these rarely done stories.

i also liked ron perlman and while the tension caused by the head mistress felt a bit uncomfortable, it was still promising.

but already during the first "private" conversation between the girls i was like "what the hell?". they throw around statements as if they are as stupid as they look good. everything else is at least decent but when the girls are on their own, the dialogue gets pathetic. someone here compared it with buffy... being a big buffy fan myself, i can't share that opinion. the dialogue in buffy might have been a little cheesy sometimes but it still was quite a bit more intelligent than that of 5ive girls.

would've looked forward to seeing how the story unfolds but with that dialogue i just can't watch it. i'm really wondering why ron perlman signed up for this...
