Teresa: The Making Of A Saint Trailer
Hotness is next to godliness

06 August 2008  |  Written by Olly Richards

A trailer for Teresa: The Making Of A Saint has hit the interweb and you can see it here.

The film stars Sophie Maes (Before There Was One, The Large Bag) as Agnes, a young Macedonian woman who is raised in a world ravaged by war, but finds her salvation by answering God's message and dedicating her life to The Lord via the wearing of a wimple and not having the sex with the men. But...but her passions are aroused, her faith tested and her font set asimmering by a handsome young priest. Will she live her life for God or throw habit to the wind and follow her heart? Whatever her decision, it will change the world...forever.

The film marks the big budget debut of Mel Cohen, who began his career with the short film Hamsters Are People Too and found cult fame with his indie drama The Butter Man. The film is already receiving significant buzz from early screenings – one critic famously began talking in tongues during a pivotal moment, much to the disturbance of the others in attendance who couldn't hear what was going on and wrote 'shut the hell up' in the air with their little light-up pens. So high is studio confidence that there are rumours that Cohen has already begun work on the a sequel, Teresa 2: Nun More Back.

RE: Proof that Megan Fox makes men stupid
I knew something was up the moment i noticed that the actress was clearly Megan Fox. The trailer was a pretty good trick except the voice over which was too comedic. I think just some captions would have made it more convincing. Nice idea though i prefer Simple Jack More

Proof that Megan Fox makes men stupid
The article fooled me. Which is understandable(ish). All the sequel shit was clearly a joke like but... Ok no. I'm just a loser. Well played sir. Well played. More

silly me!
for a second there i was befuddled at the possibility of there being such a filet mign-hot actress by the name of Sophie Maes that i was blissfully (well maybe not so blissful) unaware of. Even her remarkable resemblance to La Renard didn't nudge my noggins some. Kudos Olly! You win this one and only time! I shall now watch the trailer... anyone say tugg speedman a la scorcher VI?

Is How to lose friends going the advertising route a'la Dark Knight? Will we see some of "Sharps" columns popping up on the web? I certainly hope so! More

Taken in
Okay, I have to admit I couldn't believe the trailer . . . but something inside me resisted (euphemism!!) drawn in by the hi-concept of a fox in a habit. Sometime later, having enjoyed Mel Cohen's website and fishing photos, cursed google, and scoured IMDB, I came back here and read everyone's comments. Felt like such a fool. Having said that . . . who wouldn't go and see this film if it actually got made - move over Dark Knight ;-] More

I watched this trailer before reading the comments, I thought something was up with this as it looks like pure trash! Then I thought, hang on, if this is genuine trash, surely Kim Newman would have been writing this piece! Kv More

M.T is -Spinning- in - her - Grave!
What a poorly made trailer, hopefully the film is better than that suggested. That voice over guy trying to sund like Don la fountaine made it seem like the film was a comedy. ...Damn nuns are hot though! :D More
