Vertical Entertainment’s upcoming horror thriller, The Convent, looks killer! The movie opens on May 3rd in theaters and On Demand, but it looks like you might just have the chance to catch it early… from the comfort of your own home!
Check out the poster and trailer, then read on for all the details.
The Convent Synopsis
In the early 17th century, innocent young Persephone is falsely accused and put on trial for her life. Her fate seems sealed except for the timely intervention of the mysterious Reverend Mother offering her not just sanctuary, but hope. For the Reverend Mother is the self-appointed leader of a small religious retreat, a secluded Priory, where her fellow Sisters devote their lives to the Lord and seek atonement for their pasts. But upon arrival, Persephone is plagued with terrifying visions and soon realizes that it’s not salvation that awaits but a battle for her very soul itself.
Paul Hyett (The Seasoning House 2012) directed the film and co-wrote the screenplay with Makeup Artist Conal Palmer (The Descent 2005) and Actor Gregory Blair (Garden Party Massacre 2018 – read our review here). The cast includes Michael Ironside (Scanners 1982), Hellraiser’s Clare Higgins, Hannah Arterton (Safe 2018), and Rosie Day (The Seasoning House 2012).
