School of The Holy Beast / Norifumi Suzuki


– Dario Argento meets the Marquis de Sade

Japan’s Most Notorious Nun-Exploitation film: School of The Holy Beast (Sei Juu Gakuen) directed by sexploitation guru, Norifumi Suzuki, plunges into a maelstrom of hidden torture, secret masochistic desires, and blasphemous rites as Yumi Takigawa takes religious vows to find out what terrible things happened to her mother inside the Sacred Heart Convent. When she finds out – with the help of lecherous archbishops, a lesbian mother superior and a line-up of fellow nuns ready to whip her (in the film’s most deliriously over-the-top scene) with a gauntlet of rose-thorns – hell is loose.

Beautifully shot, shocking, unforgettable Masterpiece by the director of Beautiful Girl Hunter.
