5.0 out of 5 stars For people who love work from Argento and Fulci May 11 2011
By Donata - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Italian cinema has always been some of my favorite. All the way from the greats like Argento and Fulci to the present indie Italian filmmaker Dante Tomaselli. Even though most of the films are mostly style over substance they all are very poetic and they put everything they have into each frame of film they shoot. Ivan Zuccon's NyMpha was a film that I had been aware for quite some time. I had also heard of his previous film Bad Brains. Unfortunately I had not seen either of them until just a few days ago.

NyMpha stars Tiffany Shepis who just so happens to be one of my favorite scream queens. Tiffany plays Sarah in this film who is a young English woman who is looking to get closer to her Lord. So she chooses to join a convent of nuns in Italy. Only this isn't your average run of the mill convent.. No way, these nuns are pretty damn hardcore and have some very extreme beliefs. In order to be one with God you must go through several tortuous levels that include "hearing", "touching", "seeing" and "speaking" with the Lord. As you can imagine the torture is not pretty.

But this is only a very small portion of what the movie contains. While Sarah is locked in her room between each session a previous inhabitant of the convent is showing her visions. Ninfa is revealing her past to Sarah through several short bursts of flashbacks. Ninfa's life was ruined by her insanely religious Grandfather. Her grandfather believes he can speak directly with God and begins a wild and dangerous spiral into insanity that ends up very detrimental to Ninfa's life.

I have to say that the most impressive thing to me about this film was the wonderful score that ran throughout. Richard Band who you may remember also did the music for the cult classic Re-Animator handled the score for this film as well. He managed to give this sense of dread throughout the entire picture. I was impressed as soon as the opening credits began without even seeing a frame of the actual film. Band is really that good. So I think he deserves a lot of credit and I hope to see him work with Zuccon in the future.

For people who love work from Argento, Fulci, Tomaselli and any other number of Italian directors this is definetly something you NEED to check out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Family Secret... May 19 2011
By Bindy Sue Frønkünschtein - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
NYMPHA stars horror-goddess, Tiffany Shepis (DELTA DELTA DIE!, THE HAZING, ABOMINABLE, HOME SICK) as Sarah, a woman in search of a deeper spiritual life. Unfortunately, she comes to the Sisters Of The New Order, a bizarre sect of nuns w/ dark, torturous ideas about God. I adore Ms. Shepis, and she's really good here. Her character is subjected to several hideous ordeals, resulting in bodily mutilation! NYMPHA is an ominous, bloody look at religious insanity. The ending is suitably twisted. Enjoy...
2.0 out of 5 stars Tiffany Shepis was the only Life-Preserver Keeping this Flick Afloat May 9 2013
By Captain Insanity - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Tiffany Shepis (my favorite, and easily the hottest, and possibly the best independent horror actress working today) stars in this tale of a girl who is joining a seemingly sinister convent where the main doctrine of thou shalt not see, hear, speak, or feel are enforced in the most painful ways possible. But she must endure these mutilating trials so she can become closer to god. Instead of communicating with god these trials bring spooky visions of the nunnery's founder, and the burdens she endured. Shepis who usually plays the consummate, and frequently undressed bad-girl seemed to be playing against her character type in this flick as the quaint & quiet kind with almost no dialogue to speak of (get it?). She did great, as usual, which is the only credit to this flick, but this is not the way you want to see the fiery scream queen. A sensual lesbian scene is thrown in for good measure, and by good I mean outstanding, and no other reason. All the violence that takes place is onscreen, which is always a good thing, but not when it's cgi heavy. In the end the movie felt very slow & almost empty at times. A half hour could have easily been cut out to make it infinitely more thrilling than it was. (2.5 out 5)
