UK PREMIERE - Sixteen-year-old Vivien feels trapped in The Vestalis Academy, a prison-like boarding school, keeping to herself and sticking her neck out for no one while being indoctrinated in the feminine virtues of cleanliness, obedience and sweetness. Until she is reunited with Sophia - the former friend who betrayed her - who has stopped taking her prescribed medication and now has so many questions about their clearly run down institution. Together the girls embark on a dangerous search to uncover the horrifying truth behind their submissive incarceration.
“Unquestionably Scotland's premier horror event, and the best fun you can have being scared out of your mind”
Chris Fyvie, BBC Radio Scotland
“A delightfully devilish celebration of horror and a bloody good time”
Garry McConnachie, Glasgow Live
