Domenico Paolella - Le Monache di Sant'Arcangelo AKA The Nun and the Devil (1973)

Free Image Hosting at

The unholy nuns at Sant Arcangelo Convent will do anything to succeed their dying Mother Superior. Corruption, lust and Catholic-guilt galore in this sumptuous and erotic Italian nunsploitation classic.

With the appointment of a new Mother Superior at Sant Arcangelo Convent comes a licence to exploit the gold reserves of the New World. Cardinal DArezzo (Gora) and the Church stand to profit, and the promoted nun will take control of the wayward sisters. The competition for the position of Mother Superior is tough but Sister Julia (former Miss Great Britain Anne Heywood) will stop at nothing.

Review for The Zero Years from
B>Hell is a grungy S&M brothel in a dystopian future, rather than simply other people, in "The Zero Years," an intriguing oddity by vet writer-director Nikos Nikolaidis. Fans of the late Jean-Paul Sartre's classic one-act "No Exit" shouldn't rush to buy the DVD, but inbetween its soft-core titillation pic boasts striking perfs by its four lead actresses that lift the movie into more than just the sum of its excesses. Late-night fest programmers should take a look.

Entirely set in a dilapidated apartment some time in a fascistic future, pic starts with an unnamed woman (Vicky Harris, a dead ringer for Gina Gershon) arriving to join three other sterilized women in what turns out to be a state-run brothel. Opening exchange between her and Christina (Eftyhia Yakoumi), with each mirroring the other's dialogue, concisely sets up the pic's off-center, ironic flavor.

Val Guest - Au Pair Girls (1972)

IMDB Description follows:

Au Pair Girls' is a cheesy "naughty" sexploitation comedy from the early 70s. During this period before hard core porn was readily available these kinds of movies were very popular in England. They mixed unsophisticated slapstick comedy, Benny Hill-like double entendres and lots of naked babes. Thirty years later they are enjoyable as kitsch but have little else going for them. 'Au Pair Girls' story concerns the misadventures of four beautiful girls sent to England to work as (yes, you guessed it!) Au Pair girls. They are Randi (Gabrielle Drake), Astrid (Anita Sector), Nan (Me Me Lay) and Christa (Nancie Wait). Randi ends up losing her clothes in a barn after the son of her employer (Richard O' Sullivan from the popular 70s sit-com 'Man About The House) gives her a lift and his car breaks down in the country. Astrid, a nutty Swedish girl obsessed with colour TV, gets picked up by a Sheik (Ferdy Mayne) while on a date at a casino. Nan is hired by Lady Tryke (Rosalie Crutchley) to be a companion for their socially inept but musically gifted son (Julian Barnes), who quickly falls in love with her. Christa is taken to a club by her employers liberated daughter Carole (Lyn Yeldham) and is seduced by a rock singer Ricky Strange (Steve Patterson). People raised on British sit-coms of the 60s and 70s will notice several familiar faces in the supporting cast, most notably John Le Mesurier ('Dad's Army'), who plays Richard O'Sullivan's Dad, and Trevor Bannister ('Are You Being Served?'), who plays his photographer pal.
