The Nun and the Devil Deluxe Collector's Edition

£19.99

Released: 2nd August 2021. Directed by Domenico Paolella (The Prey/The Story of a Cloistered Nun), The Nun and the Devil AKA Le Monache di Sant'Arcangelo is a headily erotic tale of seduction and persecution detailing the sinful practices which spill out of a 16th century convent. When the psychotically ambitious Sister Julia (Anna Heywood) vies to take the place of a dying Mother Superior by any means possible, other inmates start to lose their way, indulging in heterosexual flings and lesbian coupling. But things take a nasty turn when the nuns are subjected to a violent inquisition and their existence becomes one of torture and degradation. Made just two years after Ken Russell's notorious The Devils (1971), this 1973 film sought to offer a corruption of the innocent style plot which monopolised on the short-lived wave of nunsploitation features, incorporating graphic horrors, soft-pornography and historical drama. Loosely based on authentic records, this sordid tale of religion and power will delight lovers of extreme Italian exploitation cinema. The Nun and the Devil Extra Features: Limited edition - 2000 Units Only Includes Rigid Slipcase with New Artwork From Richard Davies 40 Page Perfect Bound Book featuring "Twisted Sisters" by Andrew Graves and "Nunsploitation - An Interview with Nigel Wingrove" by Tim Murray A3 Fold-out Poster New 2K Master from the Original 35mm Camera Negative High Definition (1080p) Presentation in 1.85:1 Aspect Ratio 2.0 Dual Mono DTS-HD Master Audio English Soundtrack 2.0 Dual Mono DTS-HD Master Audio Italian Soundtrack with newly translated English Subtitles Audio Commentary By Kim Newman and Barry Forshaw Judging Luc - An Interview with Actor Luc Merenda The Devil and Martine - An Interview with Actress Martine Brochard Paolella Connection - A Featurette About Director and Writer Domenico Paolella Horny Devils: Nunsploitation Explained - An Interview with Film Historian Marcus Stiglegger Alternate English and Italian Title Sequences English Trailer Italian Trailer Reversible sleeve
