Convent of Sinners (1986)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Nunsploitation flick from director Joe D'Amato is actually very tame for the genre and instead of nothing but sex, the film goes for drama and protest against the Catholic Church. After being raped by her father, a young girl (Eva Grimaldi) is sent to a convent where she becomes very close with the head nun. Soon the other nuns get jealous and decide to tell the higher ups that the girl is possessed by the Devil. Running just under 90-minutes, the film does drag in spots but D'Amato's message against the Church is loud and very clear. Most of these nunsploitation films are nothing but lesbian sex but that too is rather small in this film as it's clear the director is going for something deeper. The camera-work (also by D'Amato) is very good and the leads do a nice job as well.
