Director Giulio Berruti’s Italian produced Killer Nun (1979) is a look into the twisted mind of Sister Gertrude. As this film is considered a sleazy psychological horror in the nunsploitation subgenre, it was initially banned in Britain due to the perverse content.
The story centers around Sister Gertrude (Anita Ekberg), after recovering from surgery to cure her brain tumor, she becomes a morphine addict, engaging in unspeakable torture, lesbianism, and other depraved acts.
