School of the Holy Beast
A young Japanese woman in search of her missing mother discovers a sinister secret deep within the Sacred Heart Convent in director Noribumi Suzuki's notorious nun-exploitation classic. After taking religious vows to gain entry into the convent where her mother was last seen, Yumi Takigawa descends into a hedonistic world where sinful archbishops and whip-wielding nuns torment her in the most unholy manner imaginable. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"in the whole nunsploitation subgenre, only Walerian Borowczyk's Behind Convent Walls (1977) comes close to the visual heights attained here."
‑ Anton Bitel, Eye for Film
"If nothing else, School of the Holy Beast is unlike anything you've seen before."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
