      Audience Member It was filmed nicely BUT the special effects were diabolical and ruined the movie. Michael Ironside only appears for 5 minutes at the beginning. It's also called Heretiks. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Terrible, película predecible. Una historia plana Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member I still don't know what the convent believes in and what they were hoping to gain from their "worship." A poorly explained premise makes it difficult to become absorbed in the narrative of the movie. Not enjoyable. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member A ratos The Convent es una cinta que es entretenida y deliciosamente macabra y gamberra cuando tiene que ponerse explicita y gore; pero falla tremendamente cuando tiene que provocar algun tipo de emocion, ya sea terror o tension o pena y empatia por sus personajes. La historia carece de peso, y a pesar de que maneja algunas ideas frescas y que bien tratadas podrian haber resultado en una pelicula de terror muy vistosa, e incluso intrigante e impactante, se queda en poca cosa. No entiendo, porque tuvieron que tirar de "green screen" en algunos planos, cuando podrian haberse resuelto de otra forma y ademas es bastante palpable que no se lo trabajaron mucho. Sin sentido. Puede ser un visionado entretenido Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member I thought it's just like another horror ghost nun, but at the end it changed to another zombie story that played by nuns. well, that's good i think but kindly ridiculous 😁 . The ancient background scenes are very beautiful. For me this movie isn't too scary enough. But still i enjoy the blood effects all through it, with the last standing woman not man 😜 as a zombie nun hunter. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member My new favorite movie, just amazing. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Jeannette Catsoulis New York Times Hyett proves more successful with atmosphere than plot. May 2, 2019 Full Review Erick Estrada Cinegarage Bad entertainment because the film doesn't bring up any real questioning. [Full Review in Spanish] Sep 3, 2019 Full Review Andrew Wyatt The Lens Turns profane raw materials into a lackluster array of stock horror drivel. Rated: C- Jun 3, 2019 Full Review Roger Moore Movie Nation Not that scary, but a game cast and a production team that punches WAY above its budget really lift this spooky period piece.
