film Arcade dot net: Top 10 Horror Films of 2008
19 January 2009 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Nympha: The environment is very secluded and there is a very unsettling mood. It is very cold and empty, ultimately becoming very draining as it is more difficult to watch as it goes along. We watch as someone who only has intentions of doing good for the world is stripped of everything she has including faith and strength. The physical torture is attacked one sense at a time, since it is supposed to be drawn out to bring her closer to God. It has the opposite effect though as the mental torture escalates and turns in to something completely different. The ideas of good and bad are played with a lot, ensuring the viewer that nothing is what it seems to be and evil can be hiding anywhere. The corruption, abuse, and twisted mindset power the film. Tiffany Shepis gives the best performance of her career in Nympha. Shepis doesn't have a ton of dialogs, especially in the scenes where the most is conveyed through her. She depicts so much depth, suffering, and betrayal mostly with facial expressions alone.
