A deranged priest takes it upon himself to punish his parishioners for their moral transgressions.
- "Much criticism has been leveled against this film for its unabashed attacks on Catholicism, but it's really Walker's trademark amoral approach to filmmaking that elicits a strong urge to take a hot bath after viewing." ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi, New York Times.
- "I ended up being quite impressed with this one; it's one of those horror movies that tries to be about something more than just scaring people." ~ Dave Sindelar: Fantastic Movie Musings & Ramblings
