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.

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 )

EXTRAS:

-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

In "Suor omicidi" ("Killer Nun") film-icon Anita Ekberg ("La dolce vita" 1960), stars in this over-the-top 'nunsploitation' entry from 1978. She plays 'Sister Gertrude'---a crazed/troubled and drug-addicted nun working in the ward of a hospital. To make matters worse for 'Sister Gertrude'---her patients are suddenly having: too many unexplained tragic/accidental deaths; one after another to be considered mere coincidence. And her young attendant-nurse/nun---'Sister Mathieu' (Paola Morra), seems to be more-than-a-little interested in her (hint...hint...)! See what happens when you mix "religion" and "medicine" or vice-versa (two scams with similar results), and unleash it on poor and helpless victims. That pretty much sums it up.

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.

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!
