Storyline

Early in the seventeenth century, a young woman, Persephone, is falsely accused, arrested and put on trial for her life. Her fate seems sealed but for the timely intervention of a stranger, the mysterious Reverend Mother, who offers Persephone not just sanctuary, but hope. For the Reverend Mother is the self-appointed leader of a small religious retreat, a secluded Priory, where she and her fellow Sisters can devote their lives to the Lord and seek atonement for their pasts. But upon her arrival, Persephone is plagued with terrifying visions and soon realizes that it's not Salvation that awaits her, but a battle for her very soul itself. Written by Paul Hyett & Conal Palmer

Nun will help
27 December 2018 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

There's something about ... Nun. Could be a different approach or even summary line I guess. There was a time when films had their eyes set upon Nuns and what they did stand for. Or rather the mystery of what might have happened behind close doors. Exploitation movies might have gone the violent route - not that this has not some very graphic scenes either! It does and they are not for the squeamish.

This quite decent overall, if you don't mind the usual logic omissions (why would anyone overstay their welcome and all those signs that are quite obvious). So if you like horror movies and like to get behind the suspense and like to guess where things might go - well you could do far worse. It's entertaining and never pretends to be anything it is not
