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

At the one hour mark she plunges she knife into her throat and she gushes blood. As she lands on the floor, she is not bleeding and has no gouge in her neck, but rather a nick below her chin. See more »

Solid 6 Stars
I enjoyed the atmosphere of the movie. The time period felt (relatively) authentic. Persephone jumps out of the fire into an all-together different frying pan.
The store is not original and I wish they explained the back story better, but it is a solid film. I watch a lot of horror and this is definitely not the worst!
My pet peeve - I hate when the scenes are so dark that you cannot see anything. This does happen through most of the film, but the eyes do shine bright.
Fine for people who like horror period pieces with some gore.
