Killer Nun (Region Free) w/SLIP

Type: New Blu-Ray

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 amazingly unique barn-storming performance in ‘THE KILLER NUN.’ In an interview exclusive to this edition, Ekberg reveals her frustration with the ‘bombshell’ typecasting that followed, expressing a preference for working on films like ‘Killer Nun’ and she boldly declares, ‘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 captivating presence and 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 (also spelt Joe Dallesandro, he was lionised as ‘Little Joe’ in Lou Reed’s famed ‘Walk On The Wild Side’).”
