Another solid horror flick by Bousman. The evil convent isn't the most original setting and the film doesn't hold too many surprises, but the execution is on point, there are some nice, gory bits, the atmosphere is creepy and the actors do a solid job. Pure genre work that is sure to please the horror fans.

Not a big fan of the zombie genre, the complete overkill of zombie flicks this past decade hasn't improved that situation. But Bousman's film really isn't all that bad. The direction is lively, the actors do a solid job, the gore is on point and there's a fun twist at the end. The film still feels a little too safe and expected, but entertaining nonetheless.

Worthy but flawed
