Immaculate is a movie that accentuates its main actor to an extent we rarely see. Sydney Sweeny is front and centre throughout the entirety of this film's snappy 90 minutes run time, and for the most part this watch is improved because of Sweeny’s draw.

The film has a very interesting concept about Sister Cecelia, played by the aforementioned Sweeny, a new nun in a convent in the Italian countryside who becomes pregnant, seemingly via immaculate conception.

The movie has other interesting ideas, but it ends up being a 50/50 split whether these ideas pay off or not. When they do, we are given very tense scenes bolstered good the acting, the other times the audience is left waiting for something with a bit more of a bite to it.

In the end, I thoroughly enjoyed this movie with its strong and at points gory imagery, a whole tense soundtrack and strong acting throughout; but I couldn’t help feeling that with maybe an extra ten minutes of run time and some more development of the script, this could have been even better.
