Sweeney’s Psychological Scare

Sweeneys Psychological Scare

Following a near-death experience, Cecilia finds herself in a remote convent in Italy, not realizing this place would be even closer to hell.
In Immaculate, the protagonist Cecilia is tricked, taken hostage, and used for grotesque religious revenge.
Cecilia fell into a frozen lake at a young age and was legally dead for seven minutes. Miraculously, she was revived and knew that it was her obligation to serve God because of this phenomenon.
When she finally finds her place at an Italian convent, not everything is as it seems. Cecilia longs for a religious belonging and community.
Eventually, she realizes that she and her sisters may not be held there on their own will.
As Cecilia navigates putting the convent on her shoulders, she slowly realizes the corruption between the walls.
Immaculate takes inspiration from other classic Italian horrors, as well as religious horrors.
The classical religious setting juxtaposes the timely social commentary of women’s bodily autonomy.
Immaculate can be compared to films such as The Convent and Suspiria, all revolving around closed off communities with religious undertones, playing with the idea of life, death, and conviction.
Director Michael Mohan, Writer Andrew Lobel, and Producer Sydney Sweeney impressively hone the art of suspense, and masterfully weave every part of cinema together; the writing, cinematography, tone, dialogue, and acting.
This all composes a striking film that offers impressive commentary on religion, bodily autonomy, and the sexualization of women.
This film will keep the audience glued to the screen while also offering questions about long-standing institutions and accepted truths.
Immaculate is still being played in movie theaters today, and is available to buy on Youtube TV, Apple TV, Vudu, and Prime Video.
