One night in 1960, a disgruntled former student saunters into the school chapel and kills a bunch of nuns and a priest with a shotgun.

Everything is played way over-the-top, using the traditional trappings of a teen horror flick, but using them so much they become satirical.

Audience Reviews for The Convent

This is one of the most terrible, cheesy and exploitative movies I have ever seen. I think I mistook it for something else when I rented it. It's about vampire-zombie things - that I guess are blacklight responsive- who eat people who visit them. And some Slappy the Squirrel-esquewoman who has to rescue a bunch of teenagers from them. It has a real Evil Dead:The Musical feel to it, only a lot less fun. Funny, but you can do better bad movie-wise.

One of my favourite STV movies of the 90s. I think this one could have easily done well had it been released in theaters. I've heard it described as a party movie and I'd be inclined to agree. Like Evil Dead mixed with Night of the Creeps this is a really fun and funny horror film (and this is coming from a guy who hates a lot of horror comedies).
