In other words, if you are looking for a sleazy nunsploitation film, Killer Nun isn't for you.

The question is, where can I find a sleazy nunsploitation film?

Is that a real genre?! It can't be.

Well fuck me with a crucifix:

wikipedia wrote:Nunsploitation is a subgenre of exploitation film which had its peak in Europe in the 1970s. These films typically involve Christian nuns living in convents during the Middle Ages. The main conflict of the story is usually of a religious or sexual nature, such as religious oppression or sexual suppression due to living in celibacy. The Inquisition is another common theme. These films, although often seen as pure exploitation films, often contain criticism against religion in general and the Catholic church in particular. Indeed, some protagonist dialogue voiced feminist consciousness and rejection of their subordinated social role. Many of these films were made in countries where the Catholic Church is influential, such as Italy and Spain.

I guess we shouldn't be too surprised.
