Movie Info

In this Pedro Almodóvar film, a singer at a low-end nightclub hides out at a convent after her lover dies of a bad dose of drugs, and she meets a group of off-the-wall nuns while in hiding. The nuns range from one who writes sensationalist pulp fiction under a pseudonym to another who takes drugs, and another hooked on masochism. But their private lives and perverse foibles may be in jeopardy when a new mother superior arrives to take charge of the convent. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovimore

It's all kitsch and no substance.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Dark Habits is a film in love with films and pop culture in general.

Full Review… | July 24, 2012

Mildly engaging, Dark Habits, Almodovar's third features about nuns on the run, is not as satirical or entertaining as his previous or later films.

Full Review… | June 6, 2011

Possibly the first work to hint at the tender sadness of [Almodóvar's]later phase

Full Review… | December 8, 2009

Almodóvar on crazy nuns should be as madcap as Peter Jackson was on zombies ( ... ) But the result is a rather low-key affair.

Audience Reviews for Entre tinieblas (Dark Habits) (Dark Hideout)

"Sister Manure, Sister Rat, Sister Damned, Sister Snake. Man will not be saved until he realizes he is the most despicable being ever created."

A most unconventional convent, populated with drug addicts, murderers, extortionists and lesbians. Almost makes me wish I was Catholic.

Not my favorite Almodóvar to date, but the dark humor, when it's working, is very good. I asked you all a few weeks ago if you could think of a movie where the Catholic Church comes out smelling like a rose. I'm still thinking about that.

A strange B-movie, that's also a satire of religious life.

Amazing cinematography, a nice cast and few glimpses of a mature Pedro Almodóvar ultimately lose out to its god-awful dubbing, which made me take out the DVD.
