Goofs

Romania was defeated during WWII and, following the overthrow of its monarch, experienced a decade of instability while communist forces consolidated their hold on power and fought petty squabbles among themselves. This was common news at the time and certainly would have been known by the Vatican.

Even if a priest and a novitiate had been allowed into the country, they would have received an escort by a government functionary and would not have been allowed to travel alone in the country. See more »

Worth my time. Enjoyed it.!!
13 September 2018 | by sanimsadiq7See all my reviews

I went in with zero expectation after reading mixed reviews, but ended up loving it. Suspenseful story, spooky bacground music, good scares, brilliant acting and an amazing audience. (Pop corn was good too). We received pure entertainment that a horror movie can give.
