Trivia

Just as a slight correction to the above. There is hardly any Computer Generated Imagery in this film. It was shot mostly on 16mm and nearly all the effects were done in camera ie live. See more »

Good acting but light on story
30 January 2019 | by GrimsoniaSee all my reviews

This could have been so much better. The actors really gave it their all. The priests that go to the nunnery to investigate a miracle, the nuns and women that live their, and the backstory of the women/inmates that live there. How the story hints at one of the many dark facets of the church, but sadly the story is anticlimactic.

All that said, I enjoyed watching it as it is still miles better than many of the horror movies out there with bigger budgets, awful acting and a story that could have been written by a ten year old.
