Set during the Inquisition, an innocent boy accused of heresy seeks refuge in the convent where her intolerant father has sent his girlfriend. The Abbess, who pretends to assist the young man, turns out to be an insatiable sadist who tortures her and then charges and accuses the innocent girlfriend of murder after the brutal death of her cellmate. In Italian with English subtitles.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could've been a little more sinful June 26, 2003
By e5150
Format:DVD
First of all, I am tired of people criticizing these Eurosleaze/horror films as if they were expecting some Spielberg epic. No one but NO ONE watches these for the "story", okay? Complaining about the lack of story singles you out as a doofus, because you are talking to the wrong crowd.
I preach to the converted, and as far as this film goes it has only a smattering of what we're looking for in this genre. The nudity is there...kind of. Not a lot of it, but enough to warrant some interest in the film throughout it's entire length. I was hoping this would be similar to "The Convent of Hell", an erotic graphic novel which tells the story of a group of nuns which mistakenly summons the devil, who then goes about raping them and turning them into nymphomaniacs. Not quite the plot here, as it happens.
A dash of very minor and brief lesbianism (one mild scene) is the best on offer here, and a "sex" scene between the abbess and the "hero" is completely forgettable. The end of the film, which is awash with topless nuns in some sort of weird, possessed freak out, is a decent climax. The main nun--a young girl falsely accused of murdering another nun (which is the basis of the story, if you care)--is the best looking, but unfortunately has almost the least on display. Of course, something which the director calls "violence" is present, but....whatever. Towards the end of the film a topless nun hanging is as extreme as it gets. However, there is a stirring moment when the nuns' true spiritual allegiance is revealed by a
creepy painting on the wall late in the movie.
The dvd notes claim it is all remastered, and maybe it is. And boy are they proud of how they transferred the audio to DAT and reprocessed it!

3.0 out of 5 stars Nuns, Nuns, Everywhere Nuns! April 18, 2001
By kurlebj
Format:DVD
The Sinful Nuns of St. Valentine starts off suiting enough with some naughty, naked nuns and progresses onto more nun related nudity and so forth. However, I'm not quite sure why this is considered a horror flick. There is next to no gore or suspense or horror for that matter. The transfer is decent for this sort of film however the subtitles can be quite annoying. I gave this movie 3 stars because of the storyline, the acting, and the nun related nudity. However, if you are picking up this film for the "gore" or "horror" content, look elsewhere as this is not the film you want it to be.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not exactly Shakespeare July 14, 1999
By A Customer
Format:DVD
The Sinful Nuns has lifted much of its plot from Romeo and Juliet, with the additions of a demonic nun and the inquisition. As a whole, the film muddles along with the lovers in turmoil plotline, only picking up steam when the inquisitor shows up. The one horrific sequence that stands out is when the denounced nuns are walled up in their convent, but their is little else. The film has ample nun-related nudity but little "gore". Probably not a film to be viewed more than once. The DVD transfer is acceptable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Blu-Ray Comes To The Convent June 3, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
The Italian genre which was dubbed 'Nunsploitation' over two decades ago came to fruition with the notoriety of Director Ken Russell's masterpiece 'THE DEVILS'-1971 and almost every Euro genre director worth his mortadella got on the band wagon either with full length features or brief sequences within their films. Here we have Director Sergio Grieco's 'THE SINFUL NUNS OF SAINT VALENTINE' aka 'LE SCOMUNIATE DI SAN VALENTINO'-1974 which incapsulates every theme in the genre. We have lesbian nuns, torture by sex starved priests, family banishment due to taboo relationships, and the proverbial burning at the stake motif. It has a terrific performance by leading lady Jenny Tamburi and scattered cameos by some great Euro actors: Franco Ressel who brought great villainy to many a Western; Bruna Beari as a neurotic nymphomaniac who has a habit of biting her lovers; and if you have a keen eye, you will recognize Corrado Gaipa who played the wheel chair bound Don who shelters Michael Corleone in the brilliant Sicilian sequence of Director Francis Ford Coppola's 'THE GODFATHER'-1972 here playing the sleazy inquisitor Father Onorio but the film never elevates beyond its exploitive images. Director Grieco touched many genres from sword and sandal to Horror and also made the memorable Ken Clark Agent 077 quartet of films does fine with the material although the hap-hazard music score by Lallo Gorri switches from Classical guitar to boppy dance motifs like an on/off light switch causing extreme mood changes for this viewer. Redemption/Image Entertainment was one of the first companies to release a handful of rare Italian Exploitation titles in the late nineties on DVD and Laser Disc and are now getting the Blu-Ray treatment. This is the identical 2. Read more ›

2.0 out of 5 stars Very disjointed March 3, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
The acting was pretty bad, the story line could have been improved upon, and the photography wasn't very good either.

5.0 out of 5 stars I agree with e5150's review November 28, 2013
By A. Wolf
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I have to say it is a very good film, for what it is. If they had big money to spend on it I am sure it would have won many awards. I would like to also say I agree with what e5150 had to said on it, so rather than just repeat everything he said I suggest you read his/her review.

had ok plot but little story, nudity with little sexuality. Offers a few twists without the awe factor, and little excitement with no horror.
