Young Samantha Walker has been tortured by nightmarish visions for years. With the help of Dr. Hoffman, she faces her unknown past by taking his advice and traveling to Germany. Having been adopted in the U.S. as a baby she decides to seek out the true roots of her ancestral past. Her journey leads to "Wallenhausen", a former German convent. Samantha's break-in to the convent at night becomes a fight for life and death as a masked monk starts the merciless killings of her companions one after another. Finally the secret of her past reveals itself and she has to face - the Sin Reaper. Written by

Lance Henriksen, one of my favorite actors and the reason I've watched many films, like "Lost tribe", "Scream of the Banshee" or "Screamers: The Hunting". And "Sin Reaper of course".
Now, excepting this God of cinema, the actors, their characters, the dialogue, all of them, are amateur style at its best. Camera work looks cheap, like I've seen in a lot of C movies lately, dunno where they get it, but they should stop a.s.a.p because it makes everything look silly and childish. Hard to take such movies seriously. The action is beyond words, the conflicts between the characters is something you see in your backyard, when kids are having some innocent fun, everything is a complete mess, it's just a tired formula, clichée, clichée, a killer that barely moves but is everywhere, a main character that annoys more than anything, some dramatic moments that had no place whatsoever... and so many other problems.
I gave it a 3, because it had some potential, had some budget, even wanted to be 3D, so plans were made...and gone with the wind I guess. I will recommend you "It's in the blood", perfect little indie horror gem, has Lance Henriksen in it, and will keep you a lot more interested than this one.
Sin Reaper, one of the reasons why horror cinema is sinking more and more...
