It's lush, operatic, hardcore Catholic horror from the depths of "The Omen" and "The Exorcist," with hints of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's "Black Narcissus," washed with medieval overtones. And it's a total, screaming blast.
There are creepy crypts aplenty and a graveyard with bell-equipped coffins just in case anyone gets buried alive (alas, the transgressive sexuality of the era's more extreme nunsploitation flicks is off the table).
Moves at a fast clip, like it's desperate to get to the next set piece. A little more action and a little less gore, and it could have made a rollicking installment of Universal's defunct "Dark Universe" franchise.
