Editorial Reviews

Convent of Sinners is the story of Susanna (Eva Grimaldi of BLACK COBRA), a young girl who is raped by her own father and sent to a convent for her sins, where she falls in love with a priest. The other nuns, however, are jealous and angry, they want Susanna for themselves, and accuse her of being possessed by the Devil.

A proper wic (women in convent) flick should at least contain lots of nudity of course, plenty of nun-to-nun action, flagellation to drive those bad stains on the soul away, and then something extra, maybe a nice inquisition scene, with a nubile nun stretched on the rack while some robed dude sits at a bench with a feather pen taking down her confession. Oh yes, and I haven't met a nun yet that didn't enjoy taking a long soapy bath with another nun, and maybe helping each other out in cleaning those hard to get places. And since the nuns can hardly walk around in skimpy clothes like in a wip (women in prison) movie, there needs to be a minimum of plot so they can dispose of those bulky penguin costumes as frequently as possible to keep the NTRL factor up (nudity to total running length).

So how does this awful (in any other context) film stack up? Well, it starts with a bang, an R rated semi-rape with carpet grabbing, and then swings right into a nude convent entry scene of the "victim", who's apparently been told, "get thee to a nunnery", I guess, I had the sound off. Can't say much for the underwear, I'd have preferred some thorns, but you can't have everything.

A wasted putting the new girl to bed scene follows, a little self-examination in the hall, and then we're right into a bathing scene, but hey! It's a dude, that's not right. Never mind, because for some reason two young topless nuns get their backs striped, and it's not bad, but could have been more graphic. Then we get a proper bathing scene, although the darn nun hood she's wearing kinda spoils it if you ask me. Well, let's go to bed, eh? Only, another lez scene is wasted in the young girl's room, no fair.

I bought this based on Joe D'Amato making "Images in a Convent" which has to be the HOTTEST movie ever made. "Convent of Sinners" completely misses the mark. It starts off on the wrong foot with a stepfather raping his daughter and that is why she ends up in the convent. (I don't get it either.) She wants to leave, but they won't let her because she is possessed by the devil. (I don't get it either.) It tries to appeal to Catholics, but there is too much nudity and implied sex for that, and shows priests lying to save their careers and nuns conspiring. It tries to appeal to porn addicts, but there is too much history and religious overtones to satisfy us. The one good scene of a group bath is brought down by a ranting Mother Superior. I keep thinking I got the wrong movie. If you're still watching at the end this is about some real person who is not a Saint yet. (I don't get it either) I wish I had not got this one. Don't waste your time or money on this one. It's such a disappointment after Images in a Convent.

We open this film with the scene of a young girl being vulgarly violated, and if that's not shocking enough, we immediately find out she was deflowered by her own father. Her mother strolls in, says nothing to dear old dad, but accuses her daughter of being a slut, and they banish her to a nunnery. (Egad, Watson, these villagers are fiends!).

The film is prefaced with the statement, "What need has Christ of so many virgins and the human race so many victims?" (I love it when an exploitative flick gets esoteric). This movie is another example of what's defined as 'Nunsploitation', yet it's too artsy to be truly classified as such, though it more than qualifies as nunsploitation. This is true of most of these films - they're too classy and artsy to be puerile trash, and too trashy to be considered art. That's why the other reviewer's disliked this one.

Unless you're referencing 'The Devils', 'Alucarda', 'Images In A Convent', 'Sister Emmanuelle', 'Killer Nun', The Nun Of Monza' or 'Sacred Flesh', all of which are straight-up nunsploitation flix, and I own and enjoy every one of them except the 'Monza' remake by that hack Bruno Mattai (forgive me for speaking ill of the departed), these flicks all suffer or are abetted (depending on your outlook) by the director or producer being deluded into thinking that they're making an artistic statement. Even the fantastically wicked 'Satanico Pandemonium' and the supremely filthy 'Images In A Convent' are art-house porn, for chrissakes. (It's as close to art as Joe D'Amato ever got, that's for certain).
