Did You Know?


Lily Rabe was the only choice to play Sarah Hope because of her work in American Horror Story (2011) and The Whispers (2015). The director believed she had amazing acting skills when it came to horror. See more »


There is no way the body of her mother would have been that gory. After 25 years it would be dry as a bone. Especially with all those rats. See more »

Only Jessica Alba...
6 February 2016 | by Thanos_KaragiorasSee all my reviews

"The Veil" is a Horror movie in which we watch a documentary crew going to a house where 25 years before members of a religious cult committed a mass suicide.From this suicide only one person saved and this lone survivor accepted to be a part of this crew.

This movie is the definition of one woman's movie. The plot is not something special and the direction which made by Phil Joanou is also not something that worth to be mentioned. Because of the low budget of this movie the result is a medium type of movie. With only one famous actor playing, Jessica Alba they tried to convince people of watching it. The interpretation of Jessica Alba who played as Maggie Price was not so good and of course was not something that I expected.

Finally I have to say that "The Veil" is a poor movie and is not worth watching it because there plenty of other better horror movies to watch if you want. Now if you are a fan of Jessica Alba and you want to watch this movie just be prepared for the worst because you are going to be let down for sure.
