 Synopses for The Convent (2000)
1.Back in the 1950s a young girl walked into a Catholic boarding school, doused the hallways with gasoline, and lit a cigarette. Needless to say, the school became a house of horror as it burned down in flames, leaving no survivors. 40 years later, the school has been condemned. A college prank requires a group of curious students to break into the chapel, which is now home to a gang of vengeful demons! THE CONVENT delivers equal parts laughs and shocks, with gore and creatures that harken back to the blood and effects-heavy horror films of the mid-1980s.

2.  Prayer Will Get You Nowhere

1959. A car pulls up in front of the St. Francis Boarding School for Girls and out steps Christine: young and pretty… and carrying a sawed off shotgun. She coolly marches into the chapel where the nuns are in deep prayer, blows them away one by one then douses the room with gasoline. With the flick of her cigarette, the room is engulfed.

40 years later the school has been shut down and the building condemned -- perfect for local fraternity antics. But when a group of students break into the cursed basilica, none of them are prepared for the horror that awaits them in the convent!
