What the devil has gotten into these girls? We're about to
find out as they attend St Mark's boarding school where discipline
is strictly enforced. Students are strip-searched, routinely
punished and there's no communication with the outside - but
plenty with the darkside. Classrooms are more like covens
and the extra curricular activities - well when the lights
go out, you never know what's going to happen. Every girl
here has a criminal past and a terrifying and anything-but-predictable
future. Father Drake and the particularly attractive and sadistic
headmistress Miss Pierce are in charge. The girls are scared
to death of them as well they should be. Because frankly,
they've let the whole school go to hell.
help it – we just had to check the origins of this movie
on the Internet. With a title so amateurishly worded (5ive?
This must be the joke of copywriters), a tagline so cheesy
(when did mathematics get involved with girls and demons?)
and a plot so silly, we had to know the origins of the people
behind this horror flick.
Warren P. Sonoda has won four MuchMusic Video Awards, and
has directed Ham and Cheese (2004) and Monster Warriors (2006).
The five girls in question (no, we cannot bring ourselves
to type out the title again) Jennifer Miller, Jordan Madley,
Terra Vnesa, Barbara Mamabolo and Tasha May Currie are, well,
relatively unknown. The male lead playing the five girls’
caretaker priest is Ron Perlman, and he was Hellboy on the
big screen three years ago.
most important find of this little research was the fact that
this 96-minute Canadian movie went straight to TV in Australia,
which explains why no one has probably heard of it in this
takes place in a Catholic boarding school for girls, where
strange things are happening to our five female delinquents.
In the obviously haunted and possessed building, there are
also a priest and a sadistic headmistress, as well as, well,
the tagline has already told you: 2000 demons.
some sex-ploitation will be slightly pleased; because there
are scenes of spanking and bathtub emerging (we are not telling
you the time codes of these amusing sequences). Horror fans
expecting a good story of witchcraft and exorcism will be
disappointed; because there isn’t much substance in
this somewhat sloppy production which focuses on the five
girls’ constant vulgar bickering and girlish pouting.
are better movies about religious rituals and scary monsters
out there. What we have left is a sleaze movie that doesn’t
really live up to its sleaze factor, but still strangely amusing
for us to sit through till its clichéd ending.
anyone is planning for a sequel at all, we won’t want
to see 6ix Girls anytime soon.
SPECIAL FEATURES :
This Code 3 DVD contains a 25-minute The
Making Of Featurette, where the actress playing the
headmistress talks about how the story is out of this world,
and how it has impacted her personally - sure, whatever you
say. There are also Trailers for two other B-grade movies
“When a Stranger Calls” and “Pumpkinhead:
Ashes to Ashes”.
While the disc’s clear visual transfer doesn’t
up the sleaze or horror factor a lot, the audio is presented
in English 5.1 Dolby Digital.
