Quotes

Sister Maria: Lord, if I worshipped you because I feared Hell, then let me burn in Hell. If I loved you only in promise of Heaven, then exclude me from it. But if I loved you for yourself, then I am your daughter. Your daughter, Lord. Don't deny me your wonders.

A mixture of the campy and the bizarre thats throughly in the guilty pleasure section
8 July 2007 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

Nunsploitation is arguably the most pointless exploitation subgenre of them all, and thats saying a lot. This makes it all the more puzzling to me why I can't get enough of them. They're absurd and dumb, but often wonderfully entertaining and strange just because of how wrong they are. The moral majority is bound to be offended by them, but they really shouldn't, because they're often anything but an articulated blow at the church. "Satanico Pandemonium" is one of the most enjoyable examples from the genre that I've seen. Its combination of pure exploitation sex and violence with an "arty" (read: pretentious) approach makes it quite disorienting even by the already strange standards of the genre.

Mexico usually has bizarre and campy schlock, and this film is no exception. As mentioned earlier, the film has an arty approach that isn't exactly accomplished or subtle (the symbolism involving the apple is laughable), but makes the material quite bizarre. To be honest, its actually competently filmed. The acting is one-note and campy, but fits the trashy film like a glove. The garish colors and set pieces all add up to something thats quite unique. Some people have complained this is rather slowly paced, but I didn't really see that issue.

"Satanico Pandemonium" features nothing in the way of artistic subtlety. If you want an actual quality piece of nunsploitation, check out "Alucarda". However, if you want some entertaining and laughably pseudo-arty schlock, that this'll provide some enjoyment. Outside of the statutory rape sequence, there's nothing remotely disturbing here. However, it is very silly and strange. And yes, Quentin Tarantino name Salma Hayek's character in "From Dusk Till Dawn" after the film. (6/10)
