'I know what you did at catholic school' - "The Sinners" - movie review
If one was to sit down and place their daughters or nieces in front of Courtney Paige's thriller THE SINNERS they may have issues upon return. If there was ever a movie in the past few years to scream out bad b***h central this would be it. Think THE PURGE meets BAD GIRLS all wrapped up in a who done it movie. When you are finished THE SINNERS will have you checking every device in your household to make sure no deviant plans are being created, but as the girls in this film find out sometimes it can be too long.
So stop us if you heard this one before. Prank goes wrong somebody ends up snitching and bodies start pilling up. Before MEAN GIRLS their was HEATHERS and the THE SINNERS are right along with that mold. More than likely viewers will have their favorites or they may hate the whole cast and either reaction would be spot on. Hard not appreciate the look of the ladies but unfortunately there was so much going on that we really didn't get to familiar with any of them. The narration is by a woman who is dead at the bottom of the lake so pretty much the film is based on events leading up but as the story goes you kinda forget all of this which isn't great for the overall perception of the film.
I think the younger audience will enjoy this film especially when they get to see revenge being acted upon by all the religious insanity in the film. Just the Dad alone is enough to make your stomach turn in this one. THE SINNERS really doesn't bring anything new to the table but solid enough to entertain the exact audience it was made for.
