Format: DVD
This film always seems to get bad reviews along with quite good ones, and that will always stay the same, but I found this very enjoyable - although I will be the first to admit that it is in no way absolutely blinding. Why this works quite well is that the actual story is based on some fact. In Brussels there was a nun who 'assisted' the deaths of some old patients so that she could pilfer from them to pay for her morphine habit. The real nun in question had an operation to remove a tumour from her brain but she was left with blinding headaches, which eventually drove her to a dependancy upon morphine.

If the script had been left like that we would have had just another biopic, but istead some more violent serial killing is added, but is this done by the nun? Eventually everyone comes to think so. This edition has the censored scene of the pins in the face re-added, along with some other scenes that were originally left out of the British showing, you know which ones these are because they are subtitled, whereas the rest of the film is dubbed.

The killings are slightly surreal, adding to a greater impact upon the viewer, and with the gorgeous Paola Morra as a nun who has lesbian urgings for Anita Ekberg, we are given some titillation, especially as Paola gives us a few glimpses of that beautiful body of hers. Also shown is the machinations of the Church, where the whole event is covered up and the nun is removed to a cell in the Convent; after all the Church has been doing this kind of thing for years, what with peadophiles, etc. All in all then this film is worth a viewing and is quite enjoyable.

'Killer Nun' is okay but why it was ever banned is beyond me, it's not a gore-fest or a nude-athon, in fact, I think the '18' certificate is a bit harsh and the only reason I can come up with it being controversial is the religious aspect of a nun being a junky who slips out for a bit of back street nooky every so often, something in itself that sounds like a William Burroughs novel.
Although Ekberg is slightly past her peak, she still exudes a certain sultriness but how appropriate that is for a nun, I'll let you decide, having said that, Ekberg and the nun she rooms with both sleep without a stitch on which I'm guessing isn't the usual habit but what would an atheist like me know?

Some people seem to approach this as just another Nun film, nunsploitation and it's bevy of breasts, heavy breathing, naughty catholic guilt trips & general rolling about in a naughty way. An excuse for watching high and mighty get reduced to feral felines. Some might even expect boundless bloodletting, or a giallo-like plot that unravels in a weird way and puts scooby doo to shame. Needless to say exploitation is exactly that. Ballyhoo of a product that suggests much but may well deliver something completely different, or at least a partial flavour of something else. There is a killer, there is a nun. There are certainly repressions being expressed. But not in a garish way, more geared toward short brush strokes. Then the film throws occasional moments of dotty behaviour...all suggestive of a confining, damaged world view...

This film is not merely all about the standard hand wringing guilt, the sexual shennanigans of a lot of repressed gals who strangely resemble models. It seemed to be a brief observation of a dame as she deteriorates, who has been operated on for a brain tumour, who has still got a few problems and not just headaches.

Amongst the plot, meandering as it may be, people are being knocked off, some are being merely treated badly. In short then, it's worse case scenario: a nun who isn't sure of herself or her religion, exacerbated rapidly given her strong libido & her confused mental state; looking after old folk in a confined area is trying at the best of times even without guilt, religious anxiety & a rather overtly sensual fellow nun...then of course theres the need for drugs to ease her 'suffering' becoming an addiction...

Funny, tragic and not without genuine shocks, Killer Nun is a surreal little curio from unfortunately only two time director Giulio Berruti. Unfortunate because Berruti shows here he can craft a dense and thrilling portrayal of a mind in descent that can rival the best of them. Anita Ekberg also gives a powerhouse performance which garnered full sympathy from myself for her character.

Might not work as a biopic, but there are plenty of wonderfully insane moments and guilty melodrama pleasures for anyone who needs a break from logical thought, as we all do now and again.

Excellent =]
Although this is a horror, I couldn't stop myself from laughing at some bit!
It was such a random film, but it did keep me entertained.
The methods of killing were crazy, the idea of a morphine addicted Nun is great.
I can't really say anything else apart from that I lent the film to my friends and he thought exactly the same!
By this if you like 'OTHER' films, but just Hollywood crackers.
