The Killer Nun

Mercy me!


Rod Lott
Forgive and forget — the one ability that Sister Gertrude (La Dolce Vita star Anita Ekberg) sorely lacks, in 1979's The Killer Nun, one of the more popular entries in the whacked-out subgenre known as “nunsploitation.” However, the Italian project may be the only one based on a true story.

Back from Eternity

And feels like it.


Rod Lott
It's fun to view Back from Eternity as an early, lower-wattage version of the Airport disaster franchise that ruled the 1970s. Actually, I take that back: It’s not fun at all. It’s a dour, depressing, overwrought melodrama as only old-school Hollywood could do.
