Simandls take on Nunsploitation
1 August 2009
Besides leading her convent, the mother superior also runs a slave
trade, selling young girls to the orient. She fakes certain signs of
the plague on some peasant girls to explain their later disappearance.
Since she also needs some virgins, she sends her men to kidnap 3 noble
girls, one of them the daughter of an important aristocrat. These girls
are meant for the sultan of Istanbul, whose emissary is expected soon
at the convent.
You won't find a real story, well-developed characters or even some
glimpses of social or religious topics of medieval time here. The focus
of director Lloyd A. Simandls movies is on naked young girls in chains
and beautiful wicked ladies as villains. While "Run with Fear" is far
from belonging to the best of the nunsploitation genre, with it's
polished photography, nice settings and plenty of good-looking women,
Simandls movies are the best you will today in the sexploitation/erotic
movie genre. As these are independent/low budget production they also
have their limits. In this one there are some ridiculous fake sword
sounds in the fight scenes, but that's about the only time the movie
feels cheap. The costumes are rather simple but effective. Performance
of the main actors is pretty OK and rather playful. At least the actors
in the villain roles seemed to have some fun. There is plenty of
gracious nudity here, actually the scene towards the end with washing
and presenting the girls to the emissary is a bit overlong. There are 2
good lesbian scenes with one of the girls (as nun) giving a very sultry
performance. While Simandl usually sticks to female only sex, here are
several "sex" scenes between men and women, although the men keep their
clothes on and the women are half-naked at best in these scenes.
I recommend this movie to nunsploitation fans and those who like
undemanding but visually sophisticated erotic movies.
