Interview – Immaculate director Michael Mohan on the fine line of horror

We chat with horror director Michael Mohan about the new Sydney Sweeney starring horror film IMMACULATE. The director has previously made films like Everything Sucks, The Voyeurs & Pink Grapefruit,and has now teamed up with the rising actress because Sydney told him she had a small window in her schedule and she really wanted to make a horror.

In the horror film Cecilia (Sydney Sweeney) leaves her life in the US behind. A young woman of devout faith, she intends to spend the rest of her days as a nun at a convent in the Italian countryside. She’s welcomed into the order but doesn’t quite understand its daily rituals, partly due to the language barrier. She befriends Sister Gwen (Benedetta Porcoroli) and also comes into contact with Father Tedeschi (Alvaro Morte). It’s not long before the latter starts asking probing questions about Cecilia’s past and what it means for her vows. There’s something very strange going on in the convent and it’s going to take a lot more than faith for Cecilia to get through it… and survive.
