Plot: Lucita has been locked away in a convent by her family in order to keep her away from her lover, Esteban. The pair make plans to elope, but Esteban is accused of heresy before Lucita can escape. Hiding in the convent, Esteban discovers the horrifying depravity of the convent's abbess, Sister Incarnation. Can Esteban rescue his love from this madhouse before the inquisitor discovers what is going on and has everyone executed?

My rating: 7/10

Will I watch it again? Yes.

Part of the Nunsploitation Project (July & August 2013). Click here for more naughty nun insanity!

This one is much like the last Nunsploitation flick I watched, THE CASTRO'S ABBESS (1974), in that it's going for the romantic/revenge angle with a healthy dose of exploitation.

And you know how them church folk likes their torture!

And back to more 'sploitation!

In the midst of this depravity you'll find a good story with good performances.  And like the other film I mentioned, this one has a great revenge/rescue attempt which I found to be quite fun.  There is actually a great kill or two that came out of nowhere.  It's a great looking film that very watchable.  I'm really enjoying this genre.  Most of the films are unexpectedly good.
