Tagline: What happened within the walls of the convent of Monza ... she will never ever forget.

Plot: Sister Virginia de Leyva becomes the new Mother Superior at the convent of Monza, which is a veritable hotbed of sinful carnality and depravity. Debauched priest Don Arrigone and lecherous womanizer Giampaolo Osio plot to seduce sister Virginia. But will their wicked and lustful actions continue to go unnoticed?

My rating: 5/10

Will I watch it again? No.

Apparently Bruno Mattai felt that THE NUN OF MONZA (1969) was a pack of lies so he made his version to set the record straight.  What was missing?  Horses fucking.  Yep.  For a picture that opens with two horses fucking inter cut with nuns and shit, it's not bad.  Take out the horse fucking and it makes more sense.  That horse scene, by the way, was used in more graphic detail in another Italian picture from the 70s.  I think it was THE BEAST (1975) but I'm not going back to find out for certain.

This version is definitely sleazier than the 1969 film but then a lot has changed with the genre in those 11 years.  Here are a couple of fine gentleman...

I'm learning an awful lot about religion in these films.  It's not nearly as bad as I thought.

God.  Religion is so gay.

You're gonna want to work in some nun rape into your know, to tell it like it was.

This one's got everything you want in your Nunsploitation except for one thing and that's quality.  For a movie with gratuitous nudity and sleaze it's boring.  Now keep in mind I'm watching a pretty bad source (it is widescreen but it's VHS quality) but Mattai and pals aren't doing enough to make this enjoyable.  I'm not 14 anymore and I would like something better.  I've seen over 30 Nunstploitation pictures in the past six weeks and most of them are better than this.
