5ive Girls is exactly what I expected when I first picked up the DVD case in my local Blockbuster.  It is poorly acted and mediorcrely written, but it has a few redeeming qualities.  The main attribute this film has going for it is the outstanding special effects, especially considering the low budget feel of the rest of the movie.  5ive Girls has some roll your eyes humor which I normally don't mind, but somehow in this instance it didn't work for me. 

The story deals with a Catholic girl's school that has been re-opened after a student was possesed by a demon years ago.  The five girls that are forced to attened are all considered trouble makers and some have supernatural powers.  The school is run by a drunkard priest (Pearlman) and a mean headmistress (is there any other kind?).  The students end up battling the possessed girl from the beginning of the film and eventually the demon is found to be Legion from the Bible which can jump from body to body.  Overall this is a forgettable film and is definitley only worth a rental if you are at all curious.

RATING: 5/10
