Description by OLDIES.com:
With the death of her illustrious father and the mental and physical decline of the Mother Superior, Sister Virginia de Leyva becomes the Mother Superior of her convent. This changing of the guard, along with a prevalent moral ambiguity, causes an upheaval among the convent's residents.
Sister Virginia finds herself the target of a horny killer, who is aided by a crooked priest. When she succumbs, her authority is compromised. Plagued by lustful dreams, she strives to maintain her holiness despite the efforts of the other nuns to humiliate and overthrow her.
Directed by Bruno Mattei (SS Girls, Violence In A Women's Prison), The True Story Of The Nun Of Monza boasts a surprisingly engrossing narrative and stars the beautiful Zora Kerova (Anthropophagus) at her most sexually radiant.
Exploitation Digital is proud to present this rare film uncut and widescreen for the first time on DVD.
Based on supposed actual events, THE NUN OF MONZA is set in the 1600s in Spanish-occupied Italy. The first of many nunsploitation films to come out of Italy, this Eriprando Visconti-directed feature revolves around Giampaolo (Antonio Sabata), a young nobleman who seeks safety in a convent after committing murder. Expecting to be protected by saint-like figures, Giamparlo is shocked to find that this nunnery contains even more evil temptations than the world outside its walls.
