Satanico Pandemonium [DVD] [1975]

Genre specialists Mondo Macabro strike ghoulish gold once again with a feature-packed release of the little-seen nunsploitation classic Satanico Pandemonium. In offering a 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer taken from the original negative, it's obvious that Mondo Macabro has gone to great lengths to bring this sordid tale of convent lust to home video. Audio is offered in Spanish-language Dolby Digital Stereo with optional English subtitles. Of course, anyone familiar with Mondo Macabro's previous releases is well aware that the exploitation powerhouse is never content in just getting rarely seen movies released on DVD, and their release of Satanico Pandemonium continues to pay testament to their quality-minded tradition with some truly informative and involved extras. A featurette entitled "The Devil Went Down to Mexico" finds screenwriter Adolfo Martinez Solares discussing both his career in film as well as his experience working alongside his father, Gilberto Martinez Solares, the director of Satanico Pandemonium. The additional featurette "The House of the Writhing Nun" offers a detailed interview with Redemption Video founder Nigel Wingrove, whose tireless efforts resulted in the release of many obscure exploitation classics to home video since the label was founded in 1982. Background notes on both the director and nunsploitation cinema put the film in context for newcomers to the genre, with Mexican lobby cards, Italian release artwork, and a filmography on Mexican nunsploitation cinema serving to make even the most novice newcomer an expert on the subject. As always, previews for other Mondo Macabro titles are also included.

    Satánico Pandemonium
    In this offbeat mixture of horror and sex from Mexico, Sister Maria (Cecilia Pezet) is a nun who is recognized in her community for her personal warmth and her sincere desire to help others less fortunate than herself. However, Sister Maria is still a woman who is sometimes haunted by the desires of the flesh, and one day while hiking through the forest near her convent, she is approached by a naked man with evil on his mind (Enrique Rocha), not realizing he is an emissary of Satan. The devilish man soon becomes Sister Maria's constant tormenter until she is tempted to succumb to his advances. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
