Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database

Communion (1976) Alice Spages is a rebel and problematic twelve year-old girl that lives with her divorced mother Catherine and her younger sister Karen. Catherine gives more attention to Karen, neglecting her older daughter. During the first communion of Karen, the girl is strangled by a woman dressed with a St. Michael's yellow coat and a mask. Alice takes her place in the line wearing her veil that she claims she had found on the floor and becomes the prime suspect of the police. When Catherine's sister Annie is stabbed on the leg several times, she accuses Alice and the girl is sent to psychological evaluation under the protest of her parents and their friend Father Tom. Alice's father Dominick Spages seeks evidences to prove the innocence of Alice.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Mr. Alphonso: Psst. Where are you going? Alice Spages: None of your business, fatso. Mr. Alphonso: Uh, I'm not feeling well and stores don't deliver on Sundays. [he makes fake coughing noises] Mr. Alphonso: How would you like to go to the store for me, please? [Alice walks off] Mr. Alphonso: That little bitch.
  • Alice Spages: There's so much junk around this filthy place, I bet you never clean it. It smells like cats' piss.
