THE OTHER HELL

Bruno Mattei, Italy, 1981, Severin Films, Horror

"I don’t think anyone ever thinks of pulsing synth-rock when they think of nuns and convents, but the clash of tones is surprisingly effective . . . no matter what the context."
— Evan, LETTERBOXD

At the peak of his excess in the 1980s, Bruno Mattei stunned audiences with THE OTHER HELL — a Nunsploitation ripper about a series of brutal murders in a depraved convent. While Mattei is typically known as a maestro of crude rip-off films (ROBOWAR, CRUEL JAWS), this is a surprisingly artful — yet blasphemous — orgy of stabbings, Satanism, and zombies that ranks among his very best. Written by the infamous Claudio Fragasso (TROLL 2) and featuring a score “borrowed” from Goblin’s greatest hits, THE OTHER HELL feels like a sleazy Nunsploitation version of SUSPIRIA on a budget of $50. In other words, don’t miss it.
