This is a bold, broad portrait of a secret society, left alone by the government to rule their own roost by fear.
St. Agatha may take too long to get going, but once the film is up and running it's perverse, overheated fun.
St. Agatha is less overtly gory and supernatural-oriented than most efforts of its ilk, but it provides plenty of chilling, if slow-moving atmospherics and strong performances.
Bousman's signature sadism is at play here.
For all of the foreboding visuals, once we work on what's happening, we're less afraid than impatient.
It might make you pray to be delivered from more such mediocre nunsploitation pictures.
St. Agatha is by no means a perfect movie, but I do have to give it credit for having a strong voice and for being unapologetically over-the-top in some of its scares, both visually and thematically.
As modern-day nunsploitation exercises go, ''St. Agatha'' is pretty bad... [Director Darren Lynn] Bousman seems to have no idea of how to tell the story in an interesting manner and the whole thing just becomes a seemingly endless slog
St. Agatha is a fine thriller that is much better than you will expect it to be. Bousman guides a coherent and nimble narrative to shocking and satisfying builds. HIs cast is solid, and his crew is on point.
What ensues during this deepening, darkly laced diabolical torture spree is basically wildly wicked women at their worst, a maniacal generation gap standoff with the young terrorized females, and something best left to those warped imaginations out there.
An endless trainwreck...
For most of the running time, it's an efficient tale of desperation, gaslighting, and trying to find hope in a seemingly hopeless situation.
