SISTER HELL




Here's a tasty slice of blasphemy to start your Sunday off right. In Sister Hell Norwegian shorts director Fredrik S. Hana has crafted a loving homage to the darker works of Ken Russell. Fifteen minutes of stylish eye candy that feels like a seamless blend of Russell's The Devils and Crimes of Passion.


This was awarded Best Short Horror at last year's Fantastic Fest and it's not hard to see why. Gorgeously shot (the lighting and framing are something else), Sister Hell also features nifty practical fx, a cool score and an ultra sultry performance from Johanna Knudsen Rostad as the titular sinful nun (I also like Thomas Aske Berg as the biker, kind of reminds me of a young Michael Biehn).

Hana is currently writing his first feature.
