Mother Joan of the Angels

December 27
Mother Joan of the Angels
Dir. Jerzy Kawalerowicz, 1964
110 minutes, Polish with English subtitles.

Lurking in the walls of a remote convent in the Polish countryside are demons in the guise of nuns. Posessed, the nuns, led by the eponymous Mother Superior, create a world of frenetic chaos, horror, and drama. Brilliantly handled this piece is devoid of any camp or exploitative thrill, a class apart from the typical "demonic possession" film.
