Brand new art has been released for Darren Lynn Bousman‘s (Saw II-IV, Mother’s Day, Abattoir) female-led psychological horror film St. Agatha, which premiered at the Overlook Film Festival this past April. Our very own Meagan Navarro loved it, explaining that it “revives nunsploitation with nerve-fraying results.”
“Set in the 1950s in small-town Georgia, the film centers on a pregnant con woman named Agatha who is on the run and seeks refuge in a convent. What first starts out as the perfect place to have a child turns into a dark layer where silence is forced, ghastly secrets are masked, and every bit of willpower Agatha has is tested as she learns the sick and twisted truth of the convent and the odd people that lurk inside its halls.”
Sabrina Kern stars as the title character, alongside Carolyn Hennesy, Courtney Halverson, Trin Miller, Lindsay Seim, Hannah Fierman and Seth Michaels.
Andy Demetrio, Shaun Fletcher, Sara Sometti Michaels and Clint Sears wrote the film.
