Plot Summary:
"A group of catholic school girls are victimized by a sadistic and jealous nun, "Sister Ursula". The girls drown the nun in a pool of "holy" water. Eighteen years later circumstances arise in which the nuns spirit is released to take her revenge. She possesses the body of Eva, the daughter of one of her killers. In order for the Sister Ursula to be properly laid to rest Eva herself must be killed."

When Evaís mother Mary dies in mysterious circumstances, she learns that her motherís school friends have recently begun dying in freak accidents and that Mary had planned to meet with the surviving members of the group at the site of their former convent school. Eva turns up in place of her mother and alerts the women to the presence of a ghostly Nun who may have had something to do with her motherís death. It transpires that the women had saved Mary from death at the hands of the deranged sister Ursula by killing her 18 years previously and now The Nun has returned from her watery grave for vengeance.

This Spanish chiller has taken three years to see release in the UK and I canít say Iím surprised, as itís one of the weaker efforts from Spain.

The Nun doesnít follow logic and is far too confusing for itís own good, forcing a twist ending on us that comes across as lame.

Technically, the film looks great and showcases some neat gore sequences, but theyíre quite obviously beefed up with CGI, which is a shame, as it detracts from the overall impact.

OVERALL SUMMARY
The young cast does well here despite the atrocious dialogue theyíre required to spout, but even Spanish horror is starting to appear as dull and repetitive as Asian horror lately.
