Hilarious nunsploitation
17 August 2002 | by meira67See all my reviews

Trash version of the story of the nun of Monza, featuring some truly absurd scenes, hilarious dialogue and Gothic horror influences. This is much more light and strangely funny compared to much more dramatic 1969 version of the same theme. Entertaining and funny but trash movie still. 4/10.
