Not too sleazy by genre standards
10 August 2006 | by (Beverley Hills, England) – See all my reviews

Even though I don't consider myself a very big fan of the bizarre nunsploitation genre, I do often find myself watching them. I still haven't seen a true masterpiece of the genre; but while this one isn't that Holy Grail either, it's slightly more professionally done than the majority of its ilk, and may even appeal to those who don't watch films just see naked women and random sleaze. Joe D'Amato's name is synonymous with sleaze and nudity, and so it's rather odd that this film appears to focus more on characters and the implications of the plot rather than God-fearing women stripping off for one another. Joe D'Amato, the director of my favourite nunsploitation film so far; the completely over the top 'Images in a Convent' doesn't give this film the same handling, but once again sleaze makes up the backbone. After being raped by her own father, a young woman named Suzanne is sent off to a convent for 'her sins'. Naturally, she isn't very pleased about this chain of events; and it's not long before she wants to forsake her vows and leave the convent; only her fellow nuns are none too pleased and argue that she has become possessed by the devil.

The film does feature several nude scenes, although there isn't anything too 'bad' in this film. One scene which sees the central character have holy water forced through a certain orifice is liable to offend and please fans of this sort of film, however. It's clear that the film was made on a low budget, although the talented D'Amato masks this brilliantly with some crisp and clear cinematography and a lack of sequences that may show his budget restraints. The central story is actually well used, although personally I found it a little too dry as I really don't have much of an interest in the way that convents are run and the methods they use to keep their personnel in check. D'Amato seems to have wanted to make the film a bit more deep than the usual nunsploitation, and this is shown by the way that the central character is made out to be a martyr, almost in the style of the likes of Joan of Arc as she wrongly becomes the victim of sins she hasn't committed. Overall, I won't say that I'm a big fan of this film; but of the few nunsploitation films I have watched, this certainly isn't the worst.
