Killer Nun is a 1979 Italy horror mystery thriller by Giulio Berruti
Starring Anita Ekberg, Alida Valli and Massimo Serato BBFC link 2020 IMDb

The 1981 pre-cert VHS release briefly appeared on the Video Nasties List. Later released with BBFC cuts for 18 rated VHS release in 1993. Uncut and 18 rated on DVD since 2006. Uncut and MPAA Unrated in the US.

Summary Notes

Legendary Swedish sex bomb Anita Ekberg stars as Sister Gertrude, a cruel nun who discovers depraved pleasure in a frenzy of drug addiction, sexual degradation and sadistic murder.

UK: Uncut and BBFC 18 rated for strong bloody violence:

Promotional Material

Dubbed the sex symbol of the silver screen, Anita Ekberg , renowned for her iconic frolicking in the Trevi Fountain in Fellini's La Dolce Vita , delivers an amazing powerhouse performance in THE KILLER NUN . In an interview exclusive to this edition, Ekberg reveals her frustration with subsequent "bombshell" typecasting, expressing a preference for working on films like Killer Nun and boldly declaring, "This is the kind of film I like!"

Originally banned as a Video Nasty , Killer Nun is a true "Nunsploitation" great, which uniquely crosses into the Giallo genre. Presented here uncut and pristinely restored from a 2K scan of the camera negative, this release finally does justice to the uninhibited and frenzied vision of its creator. With impressive high-style photography and vivid, deliciously surreal murders, it is superbly enhanced by the dreamy yet dystopian score of Alessandro Alessandroni (immortalised by his twangy guitar and his legendary whistling in Sergio Leone's westerns ). The music itself is a manic masterpiece.

Based on a true story, Ekberg's tour-de-force performance portrays a nun who turns junkie and engages in robbery, possibly torture and murder of pensioners in a Church-run Elderly Care Home - all while luring young nuns with her sapphic desires! The Nun is abetted by a hunky doctor played by Andy Warhol's superstar protégé, Joe D'Alessandro (lionised as "Little Joe" in Lou Reed's famed Walk On The Wild Side ).

Special Features:

  • Interview with Fellini's muse and iconic Sex-Symbol Anita Ekberg - "After La Dolce Vita"
  • Interview with director Giulio Berruti - "God is the Drug"
  • Audio commentary by UK Film-Critic and Genre-Expert Rachael Nisbet

Aimless Vann Siegert takes a bizarre turn in life and becomes a serial killer, tracking down the miserable, the self-destructive and those who otherwise seem willing to die.

US: Uncut and MPAA R rated for:

Promotional Material

When quiet, aimless and amiable Vann Siegert--a haunting Owen Wilson (Wedding Crashers)--drifts into town, no one suspects the evil that lies beneath the surface. Despite his easy charm, he is merely a reflection of what those who encounter him want him to be. The more Vann tries to make a go of his new life, the stronger the mysterious forces are that pull him in a darker direction. When locals start to disappear, it becomes clear that an eerie subtraction is at work among the lost and lonely of this sleepy, seaside hamlet. People look toward Vann, but no one can quite put their finger on who he really is. Through it all, he carries on a surreal dialogue with imaginary detectives who question his crimes and motives. Written and directed by Hampton Fancher (Blade Runner, Blade Runner 2049) from the acclaimed novel by Lew McCreary, this unsettling and offbeat psychological thriller gazes unflinchingly into the mind of a serial killer. With Janeane Garofalo (Clay Pigeons), Brian Cox (Manhunter), Mercedes Ruehl (Married to the Mob), Dennis Haysbert (Far from Heaven) and music icons Dwight Yoakam (Sling Blade) and Sheryl Crow.

This sensual and striking chronicle of a disappearance and its aftermath put director Peter Weir on the map and helped usher in a new era of Australian cinema. Based on an acclaimed 1967 novel by Joan Lindsay, Picnic at Hanging Rock is set at the turn of the twentieth century and concerns a small group of students from an all-female college who vanish, along with a chaperone, while on a St. Valentine's Day outing. Less a mystery than a journey into the mystic, as well as an inquiry into issues of class and sexual repression in Australian society, Weir's gorgeous, disquieting film is a work of poetic horror whose secrets haunt viewers to this day.

Kathleen Sullivan has been raped at gunpoint. Now she plans her revenge! Having left Boston to start a new job in Dallas, Kathleen Sullivan soon makes friends and begins to enjoy her new life. Larry Keeler is immediately attracted to Kathleen, but Kathleen makes it clear she would rather have a friend than a boyfriend. At the end of one date, Kathleen gives Larry a peck on the cheek and dashes into her apartment, leaving Larry confused and angry. On the next date, however, Larry is determined to get what he wants--at gunpoint. The tables start to turn when Kathleen joins a local gun club and buys her own gun. Now she becomes the hunter--on a vengeful mission.

Producer, writer and director Tony Garnett (Prostitute) was fascinated and troubled by the proliferation and celebration of firearms in the United States. So, he traveled from his native England to Texas to make a dramatic film that would explore the widespread availability of guns there and the accompanying potential for deadly violence.
