The rise and fall of a Capuchin Monk in 17th century Madrid is told in this gothic chiller. Abandoned as a baby on the steps of a monastery and raised in strict Capuchin fashion, Ambrosio has become the most famous preacher in the country. While large crowds from all over the country come to hear his mesmerizing sermons, he’s also bitterly envied for his success by certain fellow monks. Convinced of his virtue and righteousness, Brother Ambrosio thinks he is immune to temptation… until obscure events start terrorising the monastery. Adapted from the eponymous cult classic Gothic novel.
