Nuns With Big Guns - Lilith Likes to Watch Nunvember 2022

Title: Nude Nuns With Big Guns Year: 2010 Starring:  Asun Ortega, David Castro Director:  Joseph Guzman Synopsis: Upon taking her vows to become a nun, Sister Sarah is abused, brainwashed and also drugged into submission by the corrupt clergy. On the verge of her own death from a lethal dose of drugs, Sister Sarah receives a message from God telling her to take vengeance on all those who did wrong to her. Armed with God’s will and an arsenal of big guns, she dispenses Judgment Day on her former tormentors. When the church hires the merciless motorcycle gang “Los Muertos” to track down and to kill her they soon realize that this sister is one bad mother. - via Lilith's Notes: What if Robert Rodriguez but with literally no budget? "Came in like a demon, and vanished like an angel." This is not how I planned to wrap up Nunvember. I had a classic film selected, one that had been previously reviewed by bigger names than I, and I was ready to buckle down and

Sacred Flesh - Lilith Likes to Watch Nunvember 2022

Title: Sacred Flesh Year: 2000 Starring: Sally Tremaine, Eileen Daly, Kristina Bill Director: Nigel Wingrove Synopsis: Taunted by visions of Mary Magdalene, who reveals the confessions of the younger nuns at the convent, the Mother Superior’s mind is filled with the violent, sexual acts of her fellow sisters. - via Lilith's Notes: The other Nigel Wingrove nunsploitation film. "Sexual purity is the apex of my spirituality." Currently, in my non-erotica-consumed life I am rewatching the show Community, because if there is a God, he abandoned us all and I need something that makes me laugh. I just watched the Christmas Musical episode in which Annie Edison (Allison Brie) dresses sexy and turns dumb. Jeff Winger (Joel McHale) points out, and I quote "look, eventually you hit the point of diminishing returns on sexiness." Well, if that doesn't perfectly describe Sacred Flesh. Mother Superior (Played by Sally Tremaine) is haunted by t

Confessions of a Sinful Nun: The Rise of Sister Mona - Lilith Likes to Watch Nunvember 2022

Title: Confessions of a Sinful Nun: The Rise of Sister Mona Year: 2019 Starring: Charlotte Stokely, Mona Wales, Nina Hartly Director: Ricky Greenwood Synopsis: Sister Mona learns that she will be tranferred to Mother Joan's abbey. Mother Joan rules her abbey very differently. She's tough, very strict with her nuns, and she's determined to put a stop to Sister Mona's immoral behavior. Meanwhile, Sister Charlotte needs to take on more responsibility in her convent. With the help of a recently transferred novitiate, Tina, she wants to make sure that Mother Superior's lovely way of living stays as it is for a long time. Unfortunately for them, the diocese doesn't see it the same way and their accepted way of life may be shaken to its core! - Via Lilith's Notes: The sequel to Confessions of a Sinful Nun and possibly prequel to Under the Veil? "It is stupid to think that a white veil means that a woman no longer has carnal appetites.&qu

Benedetta - Lilith Likes to Watch Nunvember 2022

Title: Benedetta Year: 2021 Starring: Virginie Efira, Daphne Patakia Director: Paul Verhoeven Synopsis: In the late 17th century, with plague ravaging the land, Benedetta Carlini joins the convent in Pescia, Tuscany, as a novice. Capable from an early age of performing miracles, Benedetta’s impact on life in the community is immediate and momentous. - Via Lilith's Notes: Based on the true story of Abbess Benedetta Carlini "A pure soul requires a pure body" This movie... This movie has been, for me, for over a year, forbidden fruit. Between the pandemic and my being in Canada, and just general timing, things never lined up and I was unable to see this film until it came to streaming and rental. Much like the nuns in the town of Pescia who were also under threat of a plague, I waited, cloistered in my home for the moment where I too would be able to sample the divine sights of Paul Verhoeven’s Benedetta. At the tender age of eight, Benedetta Carlin

VIsions of Ecstasy - Lilith Likes to Watch Nunvember 2022

Title: Visions of Ecstasy Year: 1989 Starring: Louise Downie, Elisha Scott, Dan Fox. Director: Nigel Wingrove Synopsis: The 16th century Carmelite nun St. Teresa, surrounded by candles and crosses, fantasizes about making love to a crucified Christ and her own psyche. - via Lilith's Notes: The only film to be refused certification by the British Board of Film Classification. As we leave spooky, sinful season behind us, we jump into piety. We wish to absolve ourselves of the filth we saw and sampled during our Halloween parties and atone, worship, and beg big Cloud Daddy to forgive us, or punish us if He sees fit to do so. That’s right. Get out your rosary and crucifixes. It’s time once again for... NUNVEMBER! Last Nunvember we began with a smooth transition between Halloween and November with a short film called Possession which we absolutely loved. It was sweet, and brief, and contained a lot of writhing. As great as it was, my one complaint was t
