The film "Heavenly Creatures" is based around the same story, this one is just a little more screwed up. It's about two young girls who even board together at a convent school. Thing is, the girls are interested in worshipping Satan in any way they can. The girls end up fixing up a chateau where they seduce men until the men want them back and then revenge is to be had. There is a fair bit of young looking naked ladies, and the whole thing is very strange. It does start out rather slowly but the second half is pretty darned intriguing, just the whole story is very unusual. It's nice how they managed to make it clear how much of a fantasy world the girls were living in together, really well shot honestly, it's just not a film everyone will enjoy, but for an exploitation flick it's really quite decent.
