3.0 out of 5 stars ".....Tell Me....Sister Morphine....When Are You Coming Round Again....." May 3 2016
By Carlos Romero natural cinephile - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
In "Suor omicidi" ("Killer Nun") Film icon Anita Ekberg ("La dolce vita" 1960), stars in this over-the-top "nunsploitation" entry from 1978. She plays 'Sister Gertrude'---a crazed/troubled and drug-addicted nun working in the ward of a hospital. To make matters worse for 'Sister Gertrude'---her patients are suddenly having---too many unexplained tragic/accidental deaths; one after another to be considered mere coincidence. And her young attendant-nurse/nun---'Sister Mathieu' (Paola Morra), seems to be more-than-a-little interested in her (hint...hint...)! See what happens when you mix "religion" and "medicine" or vice-versa (two scams with similar results), and unleash it on poor and helpless victims. That pretty much sums it up.

Here's the scoop: for a nunsploitation flick; it was very short on the elements that we've come to expect from this insanely-sleazy subgenre---i.e.---sex-crazed lesbian nuns, devil worship, orgies, female-nudity galore, etc., etc.!! However, all things considered: the production values were pretty good, irrespective of its uneven plot and, the gore was kept to an effective minimum, which is fine by me, since I'm not really into those particular aspects of the Cult Film experience anyway (there is no shortage of "nuts" in this world that merits this criteria, so I don't think distributors need to worry about their bottom line just yet). Anita Ekberg and Paola Morra (she looked like a very young Talia Shire), alone were worth the price of admission. Especially a hot and sexy Paola Morra (sporting a fashionable hairstyle of the time---"una figa pelosa"), who was the only one to have FFN (I only wish it was close-up-full-frontal, close-up-back-side, close-up-side-frontal; cause I would not tire of watching her---parade her uninhibitedly beautiful body in front of Anita Ekberg, and in a later scene with Joe Dallesandro). Too bad her scenes weren't at least extended, especially when you consider the fact that, an equally sexy/beautiful Alice Gherardi was in the film too, but kept her clothes on! What gives? Oh well, like the Stones said---" can't always get what you want...". A decent if somewhat subdued effort, their is a twist-ending that most of you could see coming too. Oh, another major bummer, it's dubbed and not in its original Italian---"oh gosh.....darn it.....!" you made me say a bad word!!

The good news is the DVD picture quality by Blue Underground is excellent, the film has been fully restored (the audio however, which was originally in mono, is on the low side). NTSC, English (dubbed), no subtitles, FFN, NR 87 mins.

Love and Peace,
Carlos Romero

5.0 out of 5 stars Nun's need love too. Nov. 20 2007
By M. - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Sister Gurtrude is a disturbed nun troubled by her past, hates men and find's comfort in shooting up drug's (particularly morphine), murdering patient's and pure unadulterated sex. This is an ultra-sleazy nusploitation flick that also happen's to be based on a true story of a nun from central Europe (I know, the Catholic church involved in sin and blasphomy? Real shocker huh?), who would murder patient's for their possession's and shoot up morphine as a substitute for god. This is actually one of the better exploitaion flick's I've seen with really great music, a couple of good gore scenes, great production values for the time it was made, and it exposes yet another flaw with the Catholic church. Honestly after my first veiwing I would of probably given film this four star's for the lack of special effect's for my taste (there is some good gore though), but the second time around I could not help but fall in love with this film and give it five star's because of the simple fact's that it is a very well made movie, the music is excellent, and I don't beleive a movie like this could ever be replicated, even with the highest amount of effort. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nunsploitation at it's best Jan. 24 2005
By R. Williams - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
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.

Awesome soundtrack, great performances, nice and disturbing nunsploitation at it's finest. Lots of really graphic violence and nudity. Lots statements about organized religion. Recommended to fans of Italian horror and sleaze. This one is tough to beat!

4.0 out of 5 stars A great and real true storie Feb. 21 2005
By Satanarchiste - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
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 )


-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
