Bloody Nun 2: The Curse opens pre-credits with YouTuber/actor Shawn C. Phillips (Asteroid-a-Geddon, The Beast Beneath) giving in to his viewer’s demands that he take The Bloody Nun Challenge. It does not go well. Though, judging by the number of upcoming films he’s in, it may be a while before anyone notices.
We come back from the credits to find Father Gordon Herschell (John Ward, Easter Bunny Bloodbath 2: No More Tears) taping his confession to killing a possessed nun before shooting himself. Next Father Mateo (Jose Otero) talks with a fellow priest Father Gabriel (Christian Di Lalla) who shocks him by suddenly talking about “huge big tits and tight clean pussies” and his desire to visit the local brothel. As if on cue a red-caped woman (Madeline Brennan) appears to lure Gabriel to the dark side.
Apparently infected by Gabriel’s urges, Father Matteo ends up at Mr. Draven’s (Garlan Green, Theater of Horror) house of ill repute. As does demon hunter Sandoval (Mark C. Fullhardt, The Face in the Wall) and several others. But when The Bloody Nun (Christian Di Lalla) turns up they may end up the wrong kind of stiff.
When I heard that Bloody Nun 2: The Curse was set in a brothel and featured scream queen Tina Krause (Blood and Sex Nightmare, Dwellers: The Curse of Pastor Stokes) I was hoping for something along the lines of Losing It at the Devil’s Whorehouse. Not quite. For one thing, despite still looking good Ms. Krause, and the rest of the girls, keep their clothes on.
The Bloody Nun was a horror parody and writer/director Will Collazo Jr. (Faces of the Dead) follows it up with another horror parody. Which, in this case, means badly faked sex scenes and dick jokes involving obviously fake dicks in between the kills. Not the most sophisticated of humour to be sure. But do you really expect dry wit and satire from a film called Bloody Nun 2: The Curse?
The kills are bloody and rather painful looking, there are also quite a few of them for such a low-budget film. But the need to rely on no budget CGI, according to IMDB the whole film cost $3,000, robs them of a lot of their impact.
The film ends with a second YouTube segment, this one involving a female paranormal named Ella (Laura Ellen Wilson, Coven of Evil, Monster) interviewing one of the characters from the first film. That provides the only real link between the two films as this seems to be a different nun from the first film.
Bloody Nun 2: The Curse is one of those films that, as long as you know what you’re getting, you can enjoy. There are cheesy effects, cheesy jokes, and microbudget production values. But if you’re good with that kind of film this will give you what you’re looking for.
Bloody Nun 2: The Curse is available to stream on Vimeo, other platforms will probably follow.
