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!

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.

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.

Le Scomunicate se San Valentino (The Sinful Nuns of Saint Valentine) (Sergio Grieco, 1974)

I have to start off by asking how you can begin with a title like The Sinful Nuns of St. Valentine and manage to go so hideously wrong. And yet here I am, having watched Sergio Grieco's ridiculous attempt at making a nunspolitation flick last night, asking that very question, because The Sinful Nuns of St. Valentine goes so hideously wrong at every turn it could have, resulting in an incoherent mess of a movie that you would do very well to avoid at all costs.

The main thread of the plot involves Lucita (The Psychic's Jenny Tamburi), a novice at the Convent of St. Valentine during the days of the Inquisition. She's hopelessly in love with Esteban (The House by the Cemetery's Paolo Malco), who's currently being hunted by said Inquisition on suspicion of heresy and the murder of a bishop (which of these two things is more serious depends on which Inquisitor you happen to be talking to at any given time). Lucita's friend Josefa (When Men Carried Clubs and Women Played Ding-Dong's Bruna Beani in one of her final screen appearances) is also a novice, but has a lot more trouble, shall we say, conforming to the rules, which leads to a lot of topless flogging (and some turned-on nuns). On her way to an audience with the abbess (Spirits of the Dead's Françoise Prévost), Josefa is murdered, on the same night Lucita and Esteban plan to run away together; when Lucita is found wide awake and dressed in her bed, pretending to be asleep, the Inquisitor in charge of the case (The Godfather's Corrado Gaipa) assumes her to be guilty. Oddly, she does not protest her innocence, despite the abbess believing she had nothing to do with it...

"The Sinful Nuns of St. Valentine" takes place during the Spanish Inquisition. Esteban (Paolo Marco) is falsely accused of heresy by the father of his girlfriend Lucita (Francoise Prevost) and is wounded while eluding capture. Esteban takes refuge in the convent where Lucita has been banished by her father and is hidden by Joaquin, a servant. Joaquin brings Lucita to Esteban and she tends to his wounds, but when Lucita's cellmate Josefa (Bruna Beani) is later found stabbed to death, the abbess (Jenny Tamburi) accuses Lucita of the murder.

Though this exploitative film is decently acted, it is mired in melodrama and sometimes unintentionally laughable in its cinematically bizarre evocation of the Inquisition, complete with erotic goings on, torture, and demonic characters.

In Italian with English subtitles, the Blu-ray release contains trailers of other releases in the label's Redemption series.
