Based on the classic Gothic novel by Matthew Lewis
"A superior Gothic thiller, guaranteed to haunt you." - Diabolique
"A towering performance from Vincent Cassel." - Sound On Sight
A supernatural thriller adapted from Matthew G. Lewis' (now cult) 1796 gothic novel, The Monk traces the corruption of a 16th Century, pious Capuchin Monk.
Abandoned at birth at the gates of a Capuchin monastery in Madrid, Brother Ambrosio (Vincent Cassel, raised by the friars, grows up into a preacher admired far and wide for his fervor. Ambrosio is feared for his righteousness and believes he is immune from temptation - until the arrival of a mysterious apprentice undermines his convictions and leads him down a dangerous path of sin, corruption and murder.
