Not only are the teen actors great and much more resilient and believable than the average 'sorority pledge' types, but the movie is home to genre veterans Adrienne Barbeau and Bill Mosely You know, the skinny evil guy from House of 1000 Corpses! We then jump forward 40 years to a bunch of high school kids deciding to go to the now deserted and condemned building for some sex and drugs and to see if the place really is haunted. I found this extremely entertaining and gave it a 7! Chase reveals that he was unaware of his magic's origin, having been adopted. He is later revealed to be the last of the Sons of Ipswich, as well as being the one behind the supernatural occurrences, and is the film's main antagonist. It didn't 'reinvent the genre'. The scene then cuts to modern day, where it's established that the convent has since been abandoned and is a popular place for local college students to break in and vandalize, as it's reported to be haunted. From here, gore galore and hilarity ensues. The film starts like every other horror movie : A bunch of teens decide to stay in a scary place, but these teens are actually nicely drawn characters and quite funny.
What a mistake, the acting is a shambles, the special effects if you could call them that , look like something that wouldn't be out of place at a school play. Renters of videos be warned, this movie really isn't any fun, not in any intentional nor in any unintentional way. She tries to talk them out of it but is ultimately unsuccessful. This movie was rediculous, I don't see how it could even get a vote of 1 its so bad. He previously directed a unique horror movie in 2015 titled Howl, placing a passenger train in a very dangerous situation — one concerning a bloodthirsty werewolf. Instead, we are stuck with the good girl Clorissa.
What's even more impressive is that this movie is funny- hilariously so, and on purpose. The plot is simple enough and the movie is very funny not to mention gory as all get out. It's an incredibly crazy, riveting and somewhat moronic 75 minutes, it's the kind of project that defines what B-list horror should be all about. This is a very good film that anyone should enjoy. This is arguably the worst film I have ever seen, and I have quite an appetite for awful and good movies.
It would have been better off as a video clip in the first place; and when I say video clip, I mean Backstreet Boys rather than Black Sabbath. If all this stuff can't get your attention, I really don't know what will. And Adrienne Barbeau is a blast as the vet demon killer. The hilarious in a sadistic way opening immediately drags you in, and the movie just utterly refuses to let you go after that. However, as Chase has more than one magical share, he still proves superior and the temporary turn of tide does not last long.
Given that it's supposed to be scary but is actually downright hilarious, I can say that in some weird way, I like this movie. When Sarah suggests that one of the other three transfer their power to Caleb so he could evenly match Chase, Caleb immediately refuses, explaining that doing so will cost them all their lives. Once his father's power is infused within him, Caleb hits Chase with a final blow that engulfs him in a ball of flame. In this one he's a fasletto-ed nobody who thinks he's somebody! The Convent isn't a remake by name; but it could easily be a remake of the eighties classic Night of the Demons as the basic plots are more or less identical - but at least enough of it has been changed to ensure that it gets away with being a different film. Well, I would've asked for more gore. The problem is, it's a very bad and unoriginal splatter movie. When's the last time they made a movie about that kind of stuff that wasn't crap? I must say the beginning of the movie was really bad with the stereotypical college kids but if you can hold out for about 15 minutes it really is all worth the while.
The fact that this momentous motion picture cannot find a national theatrical distributor proves how out of touch some movie studios are with horror fans. What more could you ask for? That is really all you need to know. With fresh quirky characters the Lord of Darkness guy, with his terrible accent to keep you entertained throughout, this is definitely worth a watch. I really liked his 1996 film 'Killers' a lot I love Megahn Perry in this movie as 'Mo'. The Sons also meet Chase Collins, a new student at Spencer Academy.
With excellent direction and above average for the genre acting, I'm thinking of that 'Goth girl' in particular, it was a blast. As for a story, forget it. She is super believable, and offers the right mix of confidence, and vulnerability to the lead character. The opening scene sums up what is to follow. As to the acting, it looks like they rounded up brain-dead teenagers and asked them to ad-lib the whole production. Then again, he was the hero in that movie.
He is very cautious about using the Power, due to the effect it has had on his father, and is the first to Ascend. Caleb declares he will not will his power away or let Sarah come to harm. Nuttiness ensues involving drugs, virgin sacrifices, forced abortions, gay Satanists, ditzy cheerleaders, and a pugnacious pug. Reminiscent of Night of the Demons or The Evil Dead. On the night of Caleb's 18th birthday, he leaves to face Chase alone and has Reid and Tyler safeguard Sarah in public. Once inside, the group begins to explore the convent but are stopped by the arrival of two police officers and that force them to leave and take a that one of them had been holding. Back at home, Evelyn, Caleb's mother, begs her husband to save Caleb.
The Actors seemed to have a good time, and so did I. When the movie was over, I was in a rage. In The Convent, directed by Daniel Talbott, a group of women go on a retreat to live like nuns in the Middle Ages. He sacrifices himself and transfers his power remotely to his son. The group then goes to a , where Frijole tells the group that they must go back for Mo as well as a large stash of pot that he left in the convent. That's pretty much the feeling the average person will have throughout this compact and action-filled piece of garbage.
