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
Here's the scoop: for a nunsploitation flick; it was very short on the elements that we've come to expect from this insanely-sleazy subgenre---i.e.---sex-crazed lesbian nuns, devil worship, orgies, female-nudity galore, etc., etc.!! However, all things considered: the production values were pretty good, irrespective of its uneven plot and, the gore was kept to an effective minimum, which is fine by me, since I'm not really into those particular aspects of the Cult Film experience anyway (there is no shortage of "nuts" in this world that merits this criteria, so I don't think distributors need to worry about their bottom line just yet). Anita Ekberg and Paola Morra (she looked like a very young Talia Shire), alone were worth the price of admission.Read more ›

The movie in my option was a last hurrah for Anita . The story line (Dr Jekyil,Mr Height) was rather weak and comical. Read morePublished 5 months ago by cruising
This is a stupid movie with lousey acting and cheap sets. It is Italian with poor dubbing. It doesn't deserve a place on the list as a movie. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Nancy
