Poor Susanna (Eva Grimaldi) is thrown into a convent after her stepdad has raped her. Thing is, Susanna is a god-fearing woman but she just doesn't feel the vocation to become a nun, and consequently she falls in love with the first good-looking man who crosses her path, father Morel (Martin Philip), with whom she eventually even has sex.

Even though she might not be the best of nuns, Susanna has caught the eye of the Mother Superior, who favours her over all the other nuns ... and tries to get into her panties - much to the dismay of Sister Teresa (Karin Well), second-in-command at the convent and the Mother Superior's lover up to now, who soon starts giving Susanna a hard time, helped by the fact that Mother Superior's health is deteriorating ...

Soon enough, Sister Teresa convinces everybody but fatehr Morel and Susanna's best friend Sister Ursula (Jessica Moore) that Susanna is possessed, and she has her tortured and treated by an exorcist - and before long, the inquisition pays the convent a visit. Monsignor Albrecht though, who heads the trial against Susanna, does not pay too much heed to the allegations of Sister Teresa and the exorcist and gives Susanna a fighting chance - but at the trial, only Sister Ursula comes to her defense, while Father Morel, more worried about his career in the church than his lover, decides it's safer to side with Sister Teresa, and with his testimony he virtually condemns Susanna to death. Seeing how the church has betrayed her, Susanna tears off her cloths in the courtroom and gives herself to the devil ...


Of course, like with all nunsploitation, this film finds many an excuse to show naked women in all sorts of sexual situations and it also contains a fair share of torture (of naked women of course) - but that said, the film isn't quite as sleazy as both the genre and its director Joe D'Amato, a man famous for his sleaze output, would suggest, it's actually more character- and story-driven, which is not necessarily a good thing since the movie's script is pretty muddled and the actors and actresses are not always up to the task of embodying their characters - in anything that goes beyond nudity anyways. What remains is a comparatively harmless nunsploitation flick with its fair share of nudity and almost tasteful torture scenes - and its also a film that looks positively glossy compared to Joe D'Amato's usual output. However, it's not a film that in any way stands out among his many movies ...


By the way, the novel this film was based on, La Religieuse by Denis Diderot, was previously filmed as La Religieuse/The Nun in 1966 by Jacques Rivette, with Anna Karina in the lead.
