Product description

Product description

In 1959, young Christine coolly walks into the St. Francis Boarding School for Girls with a shotgun, a can of gasoline and a cigarette. Within minutes, she walks out - the chapel engulfed in flames with no survivors. Forty years later, a group of students breaks into the cursed basilica...unaware of the horror that awaits them in the convent.


With tongue firmly in cheek throughout, The Convent piles on the gross-out gore. A group of college kids take a midnight trip to a deserted convent school which 40 years earlier was the scene of a massacre by a wayward convent schoolgirl called Christine. What they don't know is that the long dead and mightily peeved souls of the murdered nuns are still stalking the premises. The demonic nuns liquidate a succession of dumb and dumber teens in order to steal their souls. Among the potential victims are a virgin Goth, a jive-talkin' jock and a pair of effeminate, flouncing Satanists. Coolio cameos as a likeably corrupt cop whose bark is worse than his bite. The humour fluctuates between goofy and just plain stupid. But director Mike Mendez thankfully bypasses the Scream blueprint for slasher flicks. The Convent provides strictly irony-free screams, harking back instead to classics like Halloween and Nightmare On Elm Street. Horror veteran Adrienne Barbeau shows up as the adult Christine, strapped with an arsenal that would make even Charlton Heston blush and ready to wreak revenge on her convent school education all over again.

On The DVD: The DVD features static menus and extras are limited to a theatrical trailer and cast and crew filmographies. The main feature is presented as a clear transfer in 4:3 full frame format with Dolby Digital 2.0 sound. --Chris Campion --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.
