Well this was a strange one, some Mexican satan horror with a lead named Alucarda who looks a heck of a lot like a crazed Susan Atkins (from the Manson family). When a new young girl turns up at the convent and is befriended by Alucarda, she starts her descent into evil! There is a bit of a possession thing going on and some convincing screaming to back it up. Also watching the young girls freak out the Nuns with their devotion to Satan is more than entertaining. When something happens to Alucarda's friend things get even messier, and deadlier as we are thrown a ton of flaming Nuns and other delights. It's perverse as heck, has nudity, orgies, and blood, and it's extremely cheaply made. Even so they try a little with surrealist and religious touches, but it's not exactly what I'd call artists. I'd prefer something a little more disturbing like The Devils, but if you are looking for a sleazy Satan/Nunsploitation picture with attractive young girls than this will definitely be to your liking.
