Storyline

Set in the 1950s in small-town Georgia, a pregnant young woman named Agatha seeks refuge in a convent. What first starts out as the perfect place to have a child turns into a dark layer where silence is forced, ghastly secrets are masked, and every bit of will power Agatha has is tested as she learns the sick and twisted truth of the convent and the odd people that lurk inside its halls.

Amped Up Tension
10 February 2019 | by Badger-20See all my reviews

Fellow hardcore horror film fans will love "St. Agatha." What sets this film apart from many horror films is its plausibility: this Could Happen (particularly in the late '50s when it is set, an important aspect some nay-sayer "reviewers" may overlook). Horror master Darren Lynn Bouseman knows how to build suspense and the extreme creepiness factor. Sabrina Kern as the hapless (though not entirely helpless) Mary nee Agatha, dominates the film even when her character is at her most vulnerable. Trin Millar is electrifying as the stoic, sadistic Paula, who always seems about half a step away from doing something horrific, generally reigned in by the far more terrifying Mother Superior, played with evil pleasantness by Carolyn Hennesy. This is quite an achievement should not go overlooked, and is best viewed at the cinema with a theatrical audience while you can. Understandably I look to forward to seeing what else is up DLB's sleeve for his next project/s.
