Sounds damn good, brings back memories of the nuns who taught us!

Oy, Irish childhood phobias....

I hope we get to see this in Canada! Ann Dowd, the older nun, played Aunt Lydia on The Handmaids Tale and was chilling in that role too!

Try to check it out on your HBO channel in Canada, or maybe Fox there.

Isolation does crazy things to people especially if coupled with religion. By religion I don't mean Faith which usually keeps us sane and sound, but the organized religious system of church, bishop, priest, monastery, nuns - and their counterpart in other religions.
The three nuns look quite impressive in the posters!

It seems they all have some strange backstories which make them really really badly not wanting to leave the island and lose it. Especially Iphigenia!

Try and take a woman's home, she's bound to get a little pissed. I'll be looking for it on HBO.

I first thought it was going to be a documentary about the Metal band Lamb of God.

Nuns are creepy in film except for Sister Act.

It seems to be very interesting:D Regards:**

I'm not sure it will be on your HBO, deary, just on international ones. I think they don't still have a US channel for this one.

DEZMOND said...

They're creepy in reality as well!

DEZMOND said...

Thanks for dropping by!

Theresa Mahoney said...

I suppose I'll have to torrent it then.

DEZMOND said...

I already have, they have all four episodes packed in one torrent :)
