Review: BLOODY NUN (2018)
Not even a week after my review of WELCOME TO MERCY in which I said there was a lack of nun oriented horror these days I got a message from writer/director Will Collazo Jr. (Faces of the Dead, Camp Blood 666 Part 2: Exorcism of the Clown).

BLOODY NUN will arrive on Amazon Prime later this month, with a DVD/Blu-ray release planned for early November.
