Nunsploitation at it's best Jan. 24 2005
By R. Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I first saw this film on the pan and scan video years ago. What a great job BU have done as usual to restore it. This is a good film and anyone familiar with the exploitation sub-genre of nunsploitation will recognise this as a stand out film. There are some very atmospheric set pieces in the film Anita Ekberg's flashbacks and the giallo inspired murder of the old woman. I just wish we had the original italian soundtrack. As is usual with dubbed films it detracts from the power of the film by having cheesy actors do the overdubs. Some of the editing is a bit sloppy but Italian exploitation fans are well used to this. The gorgeous Paola Morra is worth the price of the film alone. Well worth checking out.

A great and real true storie Feb. 21 2005
By Satanarchiste - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
A blasphemous 1978 Cult classic dirrected by Giulio Berruti.

With Anita Ekberg, Joe Dallesandro, Lou Castel, Alida Valli and Paola Mora.

A killer nun ( Anita Ekberg ) slaughters and torture the patients in an asylum and find God by using drugs ( the drug adiction could substitute for God )

Plenty of sex, nudity , violence and gore, this film was labeled unacceptable by Catholic censorship groups in Italy and banned or cut in others country is presented UNCUT, remastered , and fully restored from the original elements ( this edition contains all the footage cut from the British VHS Redemption vidéo )

EXTRAS:

-From the secret files of the vatican

an intervieew with the director Giulio Berruty

-Poster and Still Gallery.

This film is based on a true storie :

In Belgium, sister Godfrieda called "the bloody sister" was arrested in February 1978 to having assassinated by insulin injection thirty old men entrusted to her care, in the old people's home of Wetteren, close to Gand ( Flandre-Orientale ) , which employed it.

The nun, described as sex maniac and morphine addict falsified the medical prescriptions to get drug.

Declared irresponsible, she was interned in 1980 for insanity. In the first days of his arrest, one rumor says she had held a diary of its misdeeds and its escapades.

The Belgian Surréalist and Anticlérical Marcel Marien ( a good friend of the painter René Magritte ) Wrote In 1978 a false diary " Le Journal secret de soeur Godfrieda " in " Le Vocatif " n° 168, Brussels, May 1978

Killer nun stumbles, shambles, but doesn't fall at least . . . July 5 2005
By Robert Cossaboon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
If you are a gore monger looking for another movie to get your sadist fix (like myself sometimes!), keep walking, this isn't the one. If you are an irrepressible horndog looking to get your freak on vicariously through a little on-screen sex, you're sniffing around the wrong doghouse. In fact, Killer Nun, despite the title and some gratuitous nudity, seems to avoid any extreme at all. Sure the idea of a lonely nun who's hooked on morphine and is slowly cracking up is appealing on a surface level, director Berruti doesn't really probe deep enough, so to speak. There are some giallo elements, but anyone with half a brain cell can see the ending coming a mile away. The violence is tastefully edited so you get corner-of-the-eye hints at what happens. There are some watered down sex scenes, but they are stupid and pointless as they do nothing to further the plot of the story. As far as the acting goes, it's not woeful. Anita Ekberg would be more than welcome to administer to my religious needs anytime---and I'm an atheist. The patients at the hospital were interesting as they arguably had more character than the leads did. Perhaps this was intentional on Berruti's part. Although, there really wasn't much of a point to this film, if it has any redeeming value or any strength, it is to serve as a cautionary tale about the rigors of the cloistered life and the mental toll that a religious life of material denial can exact. You need only look at the mess of our clergy in America to see this. As for the title, as Berruti explained in the interview (under extras in the menu), the film was loosely based on a nun in a Belgian retirement home who murdered old people for their gold. There was no drug addiction or sexual depravity or bizarre death . . . thank goodness for the magic of cinema to improve on the truth!

When Nuns Go Bad Nov. 9 2011
By Gary F. Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Apparently there was a fad for "nunsplotation" movies in the 1970s, with such films showing the sexual and psychological perversity of the sisters as they had lesbian affairs, seduced priests, and in general acted in ways inappropriate to their calling. Released in 1978, the Italian KILLER NUN (aka SUOR OMICIDI) was considered scandalous beyond all description; although it was popular at the box office, it was quickly banned in Italy and England, and it was among the most often-cited films in calls for censorship at that time.

The plot is very loosely based on the case of Sister Godfrieda, a Belgian nun working in a hospital who became addicted to morphine following a surgery and who thereafter may have killed up to thirty people, mainly by insulin injection. KILLER NUN fiddles with the case, of course: it holds to the notion of morphine addiction, but it throws in a lot of sex and gore. Sister Gertrude (Anita Ekberg) has recently had surgery for a brain tumor. Although told the tumor was not cancerous, she remains convinced that she is on the verge of death, becomes addicted to morphine, and begins to harass, bully, and ultimately kill the patients in her care. Along the way she has a torrid bit of hall-way sex with a stranger and a lesbian affair with Sister Matthieu (Paola Morra.) Newly appointed Dr. Patrick Roland (Joe Dallesandro) becomes suspicious, but is distracted by what appears to be Sister Matthieu's psychosis--not to mention plain old fashioned lust.

By today's standards, both gore and sex are pretty tame, and the overall effect is very spotty, but the film really is as blasphemous as critics claimed it was, what with Sister Gertrude preparing her morphine injections as if it were Holy Communion and all. But what really makes the film worth watching at least once is how unspeakably hooty the whole thing. All these years and I never knew that nuns wore mascara and slept naked. Who would have thought it? Ekberg plays the role with eyes wide, flaring nostrils, and grim determination; the rest of the cast follows suit, overacting all over the place, with the possible exception of Joe Dallesandro, who is his usual rough trade, wooden self. The whole thing is pretty silly, but if you're a fan of bad movies, this one is bad enough in a bizarre way to be amusing.

Killer some Feb. 1 2010
By C McGhee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This show gets great hype from its being banned when it was released & it does cover murder, drugs, self-flagellation & lesbian sex. Since it's based on actual events the ban had more to do with leave the church alone. This is way pre-altar boy trouble.

Anita Ekberg & Paola Morra are the attractions here & the story line is just strong enough to carry the show when they are not on screen. A somewhat eerie feeling to this show. If a hint of blasphemy upsets you avoid this like the plague.

If you like Anita Ekberg unclothed this is for you. PS: Paola is better looking than Anita but there is less flesh than you might think. Blasphemy was the reason for the ban. Joe Dallesandro stars here too. Check him out in Blood for Dracula & also in Flesh for Frankenstein along with a cast of nude cuties.
