Editorial Reviews

UNCUT! UNCENSORED! UNHOLY!Legendary Swedish sex bomb Anita Ekberg (LA DOLCE VITA) stars as Sister Gertrude, a cruel nun who discovers depraved pleasure in a frenzy of drug addiction, sexual degradation and sadistic murder. Joe Dallesandro (FLESH FOR FRANKENSTEIN), Lou Castel (A BULLET FOR THE GENERAL), Alida Valli (SUSPIRIA) and the luscious Paola Morra (BEHIND CONVENT WALLS) co-star in this notorious Nunsploitation based on actual events that took place in a Central European country not many years ago! Branded as obscene around the world and banned outright in Britain, KILLER NUN has been newly remastered from the original negative and is now presented with all its blasphemous sex and violence fully restored in sleazy High Definition!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nunsploitation at it's best January 24, 2005
I first saw this film on the pan and scan video years ago. What a great job BU have done as usual to restore it. This is a good film and anyone familiar with the exploitation sub-genre of nunsploitation will recognise this as a stand out film. There are some very atmospheric set pieces in the film Anita Ekberg's flashbacks and the giallo inspired murder of the old woman. I just wish we had the original italian soundtrack. As is usual with dubbed films it detracts from the power of the film by having cheesy actors do the overdubs. Some of the editing is a bit sloppy but Italian exploitation fans are well used to this. The gorgeous Paola Morra is worth the price of the film alone. Well worth checking out.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great and real true storie February 21, 2005
A blasphemous 1978 Cult classic dirrected by Giulio Berruti.

With Anita Ekberg, Joe Dallesandro, Lou Castel, Alida Valli and Paola Mora.

A killer nun ( Anita Ekberg ) slaughters and torture the patients in an asylum and find God by using drugs ( the drug adiction could substitute for God )

Plenty of sex, nudity , violence and gore, this film was labeled unacceptable by Catholic censorship groups in Italy and banned or cut in others country is presented UNCUT, remastered , and fully restored from the original elements ( this edition contains all the footage cut from the British VHS Redemption vidéo )


-From the secret files of the vatican

an intervieew with the director Giulio Berruty

-Poster and Still Gallery.

This film is based on a true storie :

In Belgium, sister Godfrieda called "the bloody sister" was arrested in February 1978 to having assassinated by insulin injection thirty old men entrusted to her care, in the old people's home of Wetteren, close to Gand ( Flandre-Orientale ) , which employed it.

The nun, described as sex maniac and morphine addict falsified the medical prescriptions to get drug.

Declared irresponsible, she was interned in 1980 for insanity. In the first days of his arrest, one rumor says she had held a diary of its misdeeds and its escapades.

The Belgian Surréalist and Anticlérical Marcel Marien ( a good friend of the painter René Magritte ) Wrote In 1978 a false diary " Le Journal secret de soeur Godfrieda " in " Le Vocatif " n° 168, Brussels, May 1978

If you are a gore monger looking for another movie to get your sadist fix (like myself sometimes!), keep walking, this isn't the one. If you are an irrepressible horndog looking to get your freak on vicariously through a little on-screen sex, you're sniffing around the wrong doghouse. In fact, Killer Nun, despite the title and some gratuitous nudity, seems to avoid any extreme at all. Sure the idea of a lonely nun who's hooked on morphine and is slowly cracking up is appealing on a surface level, director Berruti doesn't really probe deep enough, so to speak. There are some giallo elements, but anyone with half a brain cell can see the ending coming a mile away. The violence is tastefully edited so you get corner-of-the-eye hints at what happens. There are some watered down sex scenes, but they are stupid and pointless as they do nothing to further the plot of the story. As far as the acting goes, it's not woeful. Anita Ekberg would be more than welcome to administer to my religious needs anytime---and I'm an atheist. The patients at the hospital were interesting as they arguably had more character than the leads did. Perhaps this was intentional on Berruti's part. Although, there really wasn't much of a point to this film, if it has any redeeming value or any strength, it is to serve as a cautionary tale about the rigors of the cloistered life and the mental toll that a religious life of material denial can exact. You need only look at the mess of our clergy in America to see this. As for the title, as Berruti explained in the interview (under extras in the menu), the film was loosely based on a nun in a Belgian retirement home who murdered old people for their gold. There was no drug addiction or sexual depravity or bizarre death . . . thank goodness for the magic of cinema to improve on the truth!

3.0 out of 5 stars Killer some February 1, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This show gets great hype from its being banned when it was released & it does cover murder, drugs, self-flagellation & lesbian sex. Since it's based on actual events the ban had more to do with leave the church alone. This is way pre-altar boy trouble.

Anita Ekberg & Paola Morra are the attractions here & the story line is just strong enough to carry the show when they are not on screen. A somewhat eerie feeling to this show. If a hint of blasphemy upsets you avoid this like the plague.

If you like Anita Ekberg unclothed this is for you. PS: Paola is better looking than Anita but there is less flesh than you might think. Blasphemy was the reason for the ban. Joe Dallesandro stars here too. Check him out in Blood for Dracula & also in Flesh for Frankenstein along with a cast of nude cuties.

4.0 out of 5 stars They've Fallen, And They Won't Get Up!... July 18, 2009
Sister Gertrude (Anita Ekberg) is one of those fun nuns. She spends her days doing the lord's work, which includes a strict regimen of prayer, shooting up morphine, and cruising for men. Poor Gert is also recovering from brain surgery. Thankfully, her breathtakingly beautiful roommate (Paola Morra) sleeps naked and is very helpful. Most of the action takes place in a rest home run by the church. The residents are happy and content, that is until they begin dying in horrible "accidents"! Has Gertrude flipped her habit? Is she a murderer, as well as a drug-addicted nymphoid?? KILLER NUN is a gloriously trashy bit of blasphemy! Mostly goofy by today's standards, it was quite a shocker in the 70s! Watch for Alida Valli (Suspiria, The Antichrist) in a tiny role as the mother superior...
