  2. Graf von Zahl's rating of the film School of the Holy Beast

    Peculiar approach to Christianity. Absurd and grotesque, but it's not obvious that it's meant to be a caricature. Scene with the fight in belfry is one of a kind! Did she really go to watch hockey on the last day before going to monastery??

  3. dave gunn's rating of the film School of the Holy Beast

    A beautifully shot film that focuses on the hypocrisies of organized religion, as a convent of repressed nuns hold on to their secrets and desires while projecting their internal struggles through perverse and brutal witch hunts. This pushes the envelope the way exploitation is known for, but with an especially artistic grace.

  4. Ostermyers's rating of the film School of the Holy Beast

  5. Konrad Szlendak's rating of the film School of the Holy Beast

    Very cool nunsploitation flick, although slightly lacking in narrative department. However with arty nudity shots it covers everything you'd expect from 70's pinky violence stuff.

  6. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film School of the Holy Beast

    There are some significant problems with the pacing in the first half but stick with it-the final act ties the whole thing together in a way that's as lurid, uncompromising and visually intoxicating as these culturally unsupervised grindhouse films get.

  7. ULA ZUHRA's rating of the film School of the Holy Beast

    Sex is being tied up with rose thorns, boys. Take note.

  8. rllr's rating of the film School of the Holy Beast

    Beautifull camerawork. My favorite in nunsploitation.

  9. Matt Burgess's rating of the film School of the Holy Beast

    An incredible achievement of 70s pop art and searing anti-religious sentiment. Genuinely shocking, erotic and artistic. I never knew torture porn could be so beautiful before I saw a nun elegantly strung up and brutally whipped with bunches of thorny roses! Norifumi Suzuki is the most underrated auteur of all time.

    Inquisitorial tortures? Who cares? It's rad.
