Bad Movie Review-monastery
It was released in 2000 directly to video, and has gained the following small cult.
The film opens with a sparkle into the 1950s, where a teenage-style girl shoots over Convent, in the best view of the UM mass. If anyone knows of another film that shows some nuns and priests getting shot, so I can compare, let me know. You who might be offended by members of the clergy who were brutally murdered need not worry, these nuns are possessed by demons, and have abortions on pistol women for unknown reasons, so they are sort of worthy of it.
The Monastery: Mr. Vig and the Nun
Following the story of a group of Malang youths, including but certainly not limited to, arrogant Goths, who reformed Goth cum Jock, annoying cheerleaders, and a desperate virgin, this film actually runs a cliché horror film gamut. Our hero, through a series of ridiculously bad, though highly predictable, horror film calls judgment, ends on the run of these vicious zombies-nuns (you don’t think they will really stay dead, do you?). As you can imagine with the subject matter, the film does not take itself too seriously and, as such, it is clear that the markers are largely intentional. In fact, I find them to be funny for the first 20 minutes or so, but they quickly become tiring as the film progresses. The devil wannabe worshiper, who gave me SNL “Goth Talk” flashbacks, is one of two funny legitimate parts of the film. Coolio made a funny cameo appearance in the second funny moment, but in general the film strains for laughter, and more often than not, came from the accidentally funny at inappropriate moments.

Adrienne Barbeau also made a cameo appearance as an older, slightly crazier version of our teenage nun-killer. Horror fans will no doubt recognize him from a number of John Carpenter films from the early 80s, including The FOG. Unfortunately he has little to do here, and I think the film can benefit from exploring his character more, or at least giving him more screen time to do some ass-kicking.
The jaw dropped make-up and the Gore effect from an equally low (but far superior) budget Evil Dead could not be found, and in general, the special effects worked in this film were quite careless. Some Gore effects are clever, but zombies look like people with some makeup, trapped under black light, while having some sort of seizure. The end of the film also features perhaps one of the worst attempts at a special effect I’ve seen in recent memory.
All in all, this is not a film that I want to watch again by myself, but it’s still worth seeing, especially with a group of friends for a bad movie night. After all, how many spastic zombie nuns can’t one see in today’s film?
