Flavia the Heretic
Directed by Gianfranco Mingozzi
Flavia the Heretic
Flavia, a young woman (FLORINDA BOLKAN- LIZARD IN A WOMAN'S SKIN) in the 13th century, is sent by her overbearing father to a strict nunnery in Portugal. After witnessing the unjust practices inside the convent as well as questioning her own faith, Flavia escapes from the nunnery, but is soon recaptured by the primarily male Church leaders. She is then subjected to torture, rape and whippings by the Church leaders, as punishment for her defiance. Battered and beaten, Flavia then starts planning a violent mission of revenge against the Church and everyone in it. She soon finds herself in a position of freedom and ultimate power, and with a Muslim army in tow, she leads her warriors back to the convent to castrate, rape, and kill all in their path. But will Flavia s power and bloodthirsty quest for revenge be her ultimate downfall? Considered one of the greatest "nunsploitation" titles of all time, FLAVIA THE HERETIC is now presented in glorious HD from a brand new master!
