No one is ever going to confuse Steven R. Monroe's remake with The Passion of Joan of Arc, but this ostensibly silly horror quickie possesses a formal sophistication that would make Carl Theodor Dreyer sit up and take notice.
While the material is bleak as hell, the players add some depth and dimension to their characters and one can see the makeup and f/x crew was working overtime to deliver the most realistic, gruesome death scenes possible.
