Plot: A nunsploitation extravaganza starring Anita Ekberg (LA DOLCE VITA) and Warhol favorite Joe Dallesandro; Ekberg plays Sister Gertrude, a man-hating nun whose recent surgery to remove a brain tumor has left her suffering from headaches, paranoia, and a morphine addiction. Unfortunately no one will take her complaints seriously, that is until patients start turning up dead at times corresponding exactly with Gertrude's morphine blackouts. Sister Gertrude is forced to curtail her burgeoning exploration of her sexual freedom and is committed to the psychiatric ward, and everyone, Gertrude included, believes the mystery solved; why then do the murders continue? The hospital turns into an orgy of sex, violence, lesbianism, and necrophilia in this classic of Italian horror cinema.
