“Immaculate” Review

Immaculate: Directed by Michael Mohan. With Sydney Sweeney, Álvaro Morte, Simona Tabasco, Benedetta Porcaroli. Cecilia, a woman of devout faith, is warmly welcomed to the picture-perfect Italian countryside where she is offered a new role at an illustrious convent. But it becomes clear to Cecilia that her new home harbors dark and horrifying secrets.

It’s been a while since I’ve seen a movie that was a singular genre without any stray drifting into another, and this is nothing more than a straight horror film. No ironic jokes, no dramatic romances, no goofy side characters, nothing at all to distract from the creeping realization that something about this situation isn’t right and that nothing is going to be ok by the end of the story. Sydney Sweeney does a great job as a naive yet strong young woman traveling from the US to rural Italy to fulfill a life devoted to helping older nuns in the later years of their lives, only to find that there was more waiting for her there than just humble service. It’s not a easy movie to watch at times with the camera never flinching from the violence or the implications of what’s happening and the final scene is going to go down as one of the most crushing moments in a horror film that I’ve ever seen. It really was a choice!
