Better-than-average 70s exploitation flick. Not that this says too much...
Set in Spain during the time of the Spanish Inquisition, a man is on the run from the law, having been accused of murder. He hides out in a abbey, St Valentines, where he is reunited with the love of his life, Lucita. However, Lucita's room-mate is murdered and she is accused of the crime. The local Spanish Inquisitor gets called in. Moreover, the abbess is hiding a few secrets of her own...
Much better plot than most 70s exploitation dramas. The fact that it even has a plot is a good start... The murder, the intrigue re the abbey and the abbess, the constant threat of the Spanish Inquisition - these all provide some great potential for a decent story.
Unfortunately, writer-director Sergio Grieco can't sustain the suspense and the cat is let out of the bag quite quickly on many of the intrigues. After that it becomes more of a light thriller or action-drama.
Overall, weak but not too bad. However, had potential to be fairly good.
