Decent, with actual story and competent direction

"This review is really to compensate for what I believe is a mildly unfair review of this movie. The truth is, you get what you paid to see, plus a little more. There's a healthy amount of exploitation; you get a great set of knockers and one or two decent murder scenes. On top of this, you get a mild amount of suspense. Not a lot, but some. The ending basically confirms your suspicions, but there's always the possibility that you're wrong, and the resolution is left until the end. The story is decent, the direction tells the story well (this is usually the failing of these low budget exploitation movies). The acting is, well, dubbed, so half the performance is lost, but I've seen acting dubbed to worse effect, so all in all the acting is acceptable and doesn't distract from the story-telling. I'm not sorry I watched this movie. And really, isn't good jiggle always worth watching?
A great and real true storie

This film is based on a true storie :
In Belgium, sister Godfrieda called "the bloody sister" was arrested in February 1978 to having assassinated by insulin injection thirty old men entrusted to her care, in the old people's home of Wetteren, close to Gand ( Flandre-Orientale ) , which employed it.
The nun, described as sex maniac and morphine addict falsified the medical prescriptions to get drug.
Declared irresponsible, she was interned in 1980 for insanity. In the first days of his arrest, one rumor says she had held a diary of its misdeeds and its escapades.
The Belgian Surréalist and Anticlérical Marcel Marien ( a good friend of the painter René Magritte ) Wrote In 1978 a false diary " Le Journal secret de soeur Godfrieda " in " Le Vocatif " n° 168, Brussels, May 1978
Nunsploitation at it's best

"I first saw this film on the pan and scan video years ago. What a great job BU have done as usual to restore it. This is a good film and anyone familiar with the exploitation sub-genre of nunsploitation will recognise this as a stand out film. There are some very atmospheric set pieces in the film Anita Ekberg's flashbacks and the giallo inspired murder of the old woman. I just wish we had the original italian soundtrack. As is usual with dubbed films it detracts from the power of the film by having cheesy actors do the overdubs. Some of the editing is a bit sloppy but Italian exploitation fans are well used to this. The gorgeous Paola Morra is worth the price of the film alone. Well worth checking out.
Darkside review of Killer Nun.

"I would imagine if you are catholic you would find this little flick very offensive. But then again these days who gives a fluck...on to the review.
NUDITY: We don't get the Killer nun nude. Though she looks like she has some mega juciy melons! I learned that nuns sleep in the nude. The killer nun's roomate is an incredably hot lesbo. She gets nude, we see her full-frontal. She has a huge ( I mean huge)hairy bush. I got hard just seeing it. She also has big natural and pertect hooters. Enjoy.
The movie actually kept my attention. I acutally watched the whole thing. There is really no gore except a skull being cut open during surgury. Oh Yeah and some dude takes a swan dive from the fifth floor, that was pretty brutal, yuck.
I dug the movie, it was into the whole decent into madness, falling away from the church, and drug addiction. Yeah its all here.
