Gory ‘Slumber Party Massacre’ Teaser Trailer Hypes the Remake’s SYFY Premiere in October

In the wake of their folk horror box set All The Haunts Be Ours, Severin Films has today announced a brand new upcoming box set, Nasty Habits: The Nunsploitation Collection.

The press release explains, “Throughout the ‘70s, Italian filmmakers aimed a canon of blasphemy at the church to launch what remains the most controversial genre of all: Nunsploitation. This November 30th (just three days before the US release of Paul Verhoeven’s sinful Sapphic epic BENEDETTA) Severin Films proudly presents a superfluity of depravity with four of the finest examples of this unholy cinematic indulgence: CRISTIANA DEVIL NUN, STORY OF A CLOISTERED NUN, IMAGES IN A CONVENT and THE TRUE STORY OF THE NUN OF MONZA, each mastered from original source elements with all-new Special Features produced exclusively for this collection.”

CRISTIANA DEVIL NUN (1972): Thinking she is about to die in a plane crash, a hot-blooded nymphomaniac (the elusive Toti Achilli in her only film role) impulsively devotes her life to the Lord. But when Cristiana enters a convent, her still-insatiable hungers will lead to acts of blasphemy that include lesbianism, prostitution, and an unholy desire for Jesus himself. Vassili Karis (AN ANGEL FOR SATAN) and Magda Konopka (WHEN DINOSAURS RULED THE EARTH) co-star in this “funny, touching and bizarre film, as truthful as it is exploitive” (Remember It For Later) – also known as OUR LADY OF LUST – written and directed by Sergio Bergonzelli (IN THE FOLDS OF THE FLESH) and featuring the longer Italian version as well as the ‘hot’ American cut released as LOVES OF A NYMPHO.

STORY OF A CLOISTERED NUN (1973): In 1973, director/co-writer Domenico Paolella – having launched the genre a year earlier with THE NUNS OF SAINT ARCHANGEL – established a new Nunsploitation standard via superior production values, an impressive international cast and a lurid narrative “adapted from authentic 17th Century chronicles”: Forced into a strict convent by her parents, an aristocratic maiden (Eleonora Giorgi of INFERNO fame) will discover a catechism of depravity that includes savage floggings, lesbian roleplay, illicit sex and murder. Suzy Kendall (BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE, TORSO), Catherine Spaak (THE CAT O’ NINE TAILS), Martine Brochard (EYEBALL) and Umberto Orsini (THE DAMNED) co-star in “a Nunsploitation classic that feels like a historical document” (Digitally Obsessed) – also known as THE UNHOLY CONVENT and LOVE STORY OF A NUN – now scanned in 2K from the original negative.

IMAGES IN A CONVENT (1979): The same year he made BEYOND THE DARKNESS, RomaSmut writer/director/legend Joe D’Amato unleashed this “strange and sleazy Nunsploitation, one to pull out for those who think they’ve seen it all” (Mondo Digital): When an orphaned young countess is sent to a remote nunnery for her own protection, she will instead discover a cloister of perversion rife with sapphic lust, sisterly S&M, Satanic hysteria and more. Paola Sentaore (EATEN ALIVE!), Marina Hedman (SATAN’S BABY DOLL), Maria Rosaria Riuzzi (EMANUELLE & FRANCOISE), Giovanna Mainardi (SS EXPERIMENT LOVE CAMP), Paola Maiolini (EMANUELLE AROUND THE WORLD) and Donald O’Brien (DOCTOR BUTCHER M.D.) lead an all-star ItaloFilth cast in this “trashy, impudent and disgusting” (Italian Film Review) rosary-dropper, now scanned in 2K from the original negative of the uncut version.

THE TRUE STORY OF THE NUN OF MONZA (1980): For their first fateful collaboration, director Bruno Mattei and writer Claudio Fragasso took the oft-filmed story of 17th century heiress turned sinful sister Marianna De Leyva and transformed its themes of religious and political hypocrisy into a celebration of desecration that remains one of the most bizarre, extreme and blatantly blasphemous films in the genre. Zora Kerova (ANTHROPOPHAGUS, CANNIBAL FEROX), Franco Garofalo (HELL OF THE LIVING DEAD), Annie Carol Edel (EMANUELLE AND FRANCOISE), Paola Montenero (A BAY OF BLOOD) and Franca Stoppi (BEYOND THE DARKNESS) star in this “elusive, entertaining and nasty Nunsploitation that is definitely a Bruno Mattei film” (DVD Talk) – filmed back-to-back in the same convent with Mattei/Fragasso’s THE OTHER HELL – now scanned uncut in HD from the original negative.

Limited, exclusive bundles from the Severin webstore include Fotocomic reproductions for CRISTIANA DEVIL NUN and THE TRUE STORY OF THE NUN OF MONZA, newly translated into English!
