Book Description

15 Aug 2000
The 'Nasty Nun' is a cultural icon whose ability to titillate remains undiminished after centuries in the public psyche. From The Devils and Convent of Sinners to The Singing Nun and Sacred Flesh, the sinful antics of these wayward Brides of Christ have gained international prominence thanks to history's most powerful creative medium - the cinema.

Obsessive, provocative and lavishly illustrated with over 800 beautiful and often explicit images, AntiCristo is a celebration of a fetish that inhabits all forms of entertainment including television, theatre, comics, music, advertising and multimedia.

AntiCristo is unique study of a taboo subject: ecclesiastical erotica. With its encyclopedic scope it stands as the definitive bible of Nasty Nun Sinema and Culture.

Absolutely Unique - the one and only book of its type ever!

Obvious fetish appeal of the subject matter combined with lavish presentation makes it a favourite choice for impulse buyers and collectors.

This book is a fully cross-referenced work of staggering scholarship, which is the result of eight years worth of obsessive research.

Product Description


A beautifully printed, obsessively researched and fabulously twisted volume that pays tribute the long-fetished concept of the 'nasty nun' in motion pictures and more. Intelligently written and packed with hundreds of illustrations, ad mats and undraped Sisters, this is a must-have coffee table book for the lapsed Catholic cognosecenti. -- Shock Cinema

Despite its titillating - possibly blasphemous - subject, this is a scholarly work with encyclopaedic scope. Illustrated throughout, often with adult material, this definitely won't be for The Sound of Music crowd. While it may have fetish appeal for some, the attitude it adopts is far from sniggering. Written with authority, it unashamedly celebrates a provocative subject in a mature, intelligent and approachable manner. -- Film Review, ***** Five Stars

Flying, singing, killing, f**king... you name it, these gals have done it. This extensive study of "ecclesiastical erotica" covers every aspect of our seemingly endless fascination with Christ's brides gone bad. Over 300 pages illustrated with great international posters and film stills showing sisters performing some very rude acts indeed. Surely the work of the Devil. -- Hotdog

Nun's in film from Audrey Hepburn's "The Nun's Story" to Sexploitationmovie "Scared Flesh". More Nunploitation and Underground, than mainstream-Hollywood productions. The Publishers had proplems to find somebody who wanted to print the book because of his "strong" (?) content. Pretty difficult to understand for an european country in the 21st Century.....! The author collected a huge amount of informations about Nunploitation from films, over Comics, till theater and literatur. Never the less the structure of the book didn't convince me very much. A simple film by film listing with less general informations but deeper filmcoverage would have been more and better. All in all the first work about this (Underground-)theme and therefor it belongs in any serious filmbook-collection.
