We all had that spooky place while we were in school that sprouted legend after legend of horrific events, a place where homicidal maniacs hid, demonic monsters laired, or evil witches worked their black magic. In the case of Mike Mendez's latest venture it is a convent where, legend has it, some girl went in with a sawed-off shotgun and proceeded to blow away the whole lot of praying nuns, save for Mother Superior, whom she doused with gasoline and defiantly flicked her cigarette at. The Convent takes place forty years later and follows a group of college kids who break into the condemned building to spray-paint their Greek letters on the building before the homecoming game. Little do they know what the night has in store for them - a roller coaster of surprises. All hope seems lost until one of the toughest chicks to grace the silver screen comes along to save the day, or does she?
