Detective David Keith, Sister Alyssa Milano and a lot of sinful Catholic schoolgirls
27 July 2012 | by (Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

This has many things I like in a movie--a Catholic school setting with a lot of improbably mature-looking, leggy, and big-breasted Catholic schoolgirls doffing their uniforms at every opportunity, a former clean-cut TV star (Alyssa Milano) trying on an "adult" role, and, of course, David Keith as a laconic detective.

The plot involves a series of murders at an isolated Catholic girls' school. David Keith is investigating. Milano plays a novice nun/secretary who helps him out. In between the murders there are a plethora of sex scenes--straight sex scenes, lesbian sex scenes, teacher-student sex scenes, David Keith-Alyssa Milano sex scenes. This isn't perhaps as racy as most erotic thrillers of 90's, but it's better acted, more competently made, and certainly more interesting. David Keith is great in this and it's hard to believe he largely vanished after this role (and before he could finally get together with Keith David and do a black-and-white buddy cop comedy). Milano was much more undraped and sexy in "Embrace of the Vampire" and "Poison Ivy 2", but she does a better ACTING job here, not being entirely unconvincing as a novice nun (who may not actually be a nun).

There's also a good supporting cast including Terry Mulligan as the local veterinarian/coroner and Peter Hanlon as a creepy headmaster taking sexual advantage of his nubile students (although it's kinda hard to blame him when you see the actresses playing the "students"). I didn't recognize any of the younger supporting actresses, but being somewhat of an authority in the matter, I have to say that along with "Little Witches" this is probably the sexiest Catholic schoolgirl movie of the 90's (a genre that has regrettably vanished in the more politically correct new millennium). Recommended.
