I personally have always found Nuns to be really super creepy but once you've seen Stoppi in action as Mother Vincenzia you'll likely have to agree with me. She is ridiculously creepy and over the top in this role, but she definitely makes the movie. As far as Nunsploitation goes, this is actually the best film I've seen (mind you I've not seen them all or anything). The story is about a bunch of brutal murders that are happening, the Nuns think Satan is responsible, and the Priest investigating thinks it's a crazy person. Of course both are somewhat correct, but you'll have to see it to get what I mean. It's cheesy and hilarious in many ways but at the same time it's creepy and ultra serious in places making this really entertaining and effective. This should please most even if the effects are a little erm silly in places.
