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!Read more ›
One thing though, it seems as though many of these directors; Franco, Rollin, and others, though they might not have directed this type of movie, where the Catholic Church is involved, seem to suggest that despite the outward appearance of holiness, there are corrupt people. This is true, but it is the people, not the principles, that are corrupt, and it doesn't matter if they wear a habit, or a Roman collar, but these people ultimately pay for their corruption. With that said, mildly intriguing.
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.

Watch an Italian film about nuns? DUH! I love this genre. It makes me feel like a teenager sneaking a peek into the girls locker room. Oh sweet mystery of life...Published 4 months ago by Doctor Mysterioso
had ok plot but little story, nudity with little sexuality. Offers a few twists without the awe factor, and little excitement with no horror.Published on August 23, 2013 by M.J. Vaughn Oloffson
The Spanish Inquisition was a terrible period in history, as many people perished and were savagely tortured for unjust, political and fanatical reasons - nothing to do with God. Read morePublished on June 18, 2013 by Carlos E. Velasquez
