A splendid movie - am in agreement with the other reviewers
20 June 2017 | by hoppitysmummySee all my reviews

Although I had seen one of de Fuentes's films (THE TIGER OF YAUTAPEC) many years back, THE PHANTOM OF THE CONVENT looked very intriguing. Despite a rather rough copy, it held the attention throughout and delivered a good many scares and creepy moments in its eighty minutes or so. In its atmosphere reminded me a little of VAMPYR or WHITE ZOMBIE, and deserves to be much better known. Well worth seeking out.
