StevenF Review of St. Agatha

The film St. Agatha had its American theatrical debut on February 8, 2019. The film takes place in a small Georgia town in the 1950s. Mary (Sabrina Kern) is an expectant teenage mother who seeks help in a home for unwed mothers which is run by an eccentric group of nuns. The Mother Superior (Carolyn Hennesy) is cruel and sells the babies when they are born.

The acting was good and there were enough creepy and bloody scenes to keep an audience’s attention. The directing was decent, but they tended to rely on flashbacks a lot. The horror aspect of the film depended on tension who was done fairly well. The pace was a bit slow at times, but it did keep my interest.

The main thing I didn’t care for was the vomiting scenes. Not a big fan. This may have been a fictional story but this does occur with various religious organizations and governments. This could have been done a bit better but I will give it 4 stars out of 5.

    The vomiting scenes were great, I wish they would have had more gut-wrenching and longer ones. There is nothing like someone puking up their guts. I heard a tale where three boys made fake puke and poured it from a balcony onto the people below, all the while making but wrenching noises. Seems that almost everyone in the theatre got sick. Classic boy pranks.

    As far as the rest of the movie, this is what happens when the police are not called right away when a church, not just the Catholic Church, closes their doors to members but doesn’t report it. Was this extreme? I do not think so, I believe this is moderate in a society that protects guns but not children.
