Movie Info

A number of people who have devoted their lives to God find themselves undone by desires of the flesh in this unusual erotic drama. The abbess (Moyna Cope) of a convent invites the leader of a group of monks (Simon Hill) to visit her and offer needed advice. A wave of sexual temptation has begun to flood the convent, with the Mother Superior (Sally Tremaine) having bizarre sexual fantasies about Mary Magdalene (Kristina Bill), and many of the other nuns suddenly attracted to each other. However, the presence of a man only fuels the fires of a potentially explosive situation. Sacred Flesh (whose writer and director, Nigel Wingrove, previously dealt with a similar mix of sexuality and spirituality in his controversial short subject Visions of Ecstasy) was shot on videotape, and was projected electronically for its initial British engagements. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Sacred Flesh


With some incredible cover artwork, and controversial subject matter, if your a fan of the 70s sexplotation phase, then youll love this one. Being a huge fan of anything that has to do with religious horror, then i was bound to love this one. Granted the story line plays out nothing short of an Anthology type script, and of course, they figure out how to some how undress every nun at the medieval convent, but its one of those you really cant look away. Maybe its just me being a male talking, but i liked it.

Your typical Satanic nunsploitation flick (demonic possession, lesbianism, etc.) It's not bad but not great. The sex scenes are hot but the women are obviously not that "into" it, if you know what I mean. Man, just hire real lesbians if you want to have realistic, convincingly hot lesbian scenes...
