Images in a Convent / Immagini di un convento (1979)

2.0 out of 5

Written and directed by Joe D'Amato, Immagini di un convento is an impudently trashy entry into the nunsploitation sub-genre that one could interpret as an extreme criticism of Catholicism. With D'Amato's repertoire it was more likely about making a 'profitable' film.

Every scene of eroticism is instantly spoiled by unattractive actors and actresses but the film's saving grace is, however, the over-the-top climactic moment in which members of the convent fall into a sexual rampage.

Certainly one of the most disgusting Italian nunsploitation features. Recommended for the completist.
