The Devil in a Convent (Wildcard #4) (movie #97)
his is another short movie that's over 100 years old. It's from the year 1899,and it depicts a convent full of nuns that are suddenly terrorized by a demonic little guy (perhaps it's Satan himself; that part isn't totally clear) who appears out of a portal to hell (represented by a trapdoor in the floor) and begins filling the convent with demonic images until he's banished by a Priest. The quality of the primitive special effects is impressive, considering the year this movie was made. It's short, so there's not much of a plot (but then again, some movies today that are hours long don't really have a plot either) but it was still cool to see the early special effects at work trying to tell a creepy little story.
