Poor Justine (Susana Kamini), alone in the world, lives in a convent
or monastery and comes under the erotic spell of the mysterious girl
Alucarda (Tina Romero). After an encounter with gypsies and the support
of a Doctor Oszek (Claudio Brook) also a warlock, they start
to worship Satan. To stop the chaos that has engulfed the monastery
(and combined convent?) the monks led by a Father Lazaro (David
Silva) decides to exorcize Justine, and this ends really bad. Racy and
also Arty Méxican Nunsploitation and Catholic horror with some
exciting visuals and fascinating atmosphere.
Lots of screaming nuns, nudity and religious hysteria
in an odd horror from the "unusual" fantasy director Moctezuma,
who worked with
likewise Chilean director, artist, writer etc. Alejandro Jodorowsky
in the 1971 cult movie classic "El Topo".
Probably like so many other modern nunsploitation movies inspired by
Ken Russel's 1971 "The Devils", but there are probably a mass
of Convent fantasy movies, nunsploitation perhaps, preceeding that film,
especially surely from the Latin Film Industry world.
Yes, i can see the allure of Horny Nuns, of what's really going on behind
the thich convent walls .... and that's, sorry to say, probably
because i'm a pervert, or ? There are other takes on this exploitation
angle, as - what's really going on in the girls locker room, - what's
really going on in the female prison, - what's really going on ....
