  • Ultimately the movie disappoints, falling between two stools and failing to convince either as spectacle or as a fable about religious obsession. show more

  • An eccentric period melodrama with horror-flick overtones. Occasionally incoherent but never dull, the movie brims with weird imagery. show more

  • Dominik Moll never addresses Matthew Gregory Lewis's original groundbreaking ideas in the film, nor does he rework the material for a contemporary audience. show more
