A priest with a haunted past and a novice on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate the death of a young nun in Romania and confront a malevolent force in the form of a demonic nun.
Criminal psychologist Kate Fuller is assigned to the murder of a man who has seemingly been strangled in his sleep by his wife and the only witness is their eight-year-old daughter, Sophie. As Kate digs into the mystery of an ancient demon which kills people in their sleep, she experiences the same petrifying symptoms as all previous victims and spirals through a chilling nightmare to save herself and Sophie before she dares fall asleep again.Written by

This had such promise, however most of that was imposed by the 6.7 rating it was enjoying on IMDB. Sadly I realised this was from less than 80 reviews AFTER I had watched it. The story starts well, it's an interesting set up that many can empathise with. However it ends as a drawn out cliche that lacks any thought or adventure. Avoid this straight to DVD future non classic!
