AntiCristo: The Bible of Nasty Nun Sinema and Culture

From The Grindhouse Cinema Database



The 'Nasty Nun' is a cultural icon whose ability to titillate remains undiminished after centuries in the public psyche. From The Devils and Convent of Sinners to The Singing Nun and Sacred Flesh, the sinful antics of these wayward Brides of Christ have gained international prominence thanks to history's most powerful creative medium - the cinema. Obsessive, provocative and lavishly illustrated with over 800 beautiful and often explicit images, AntiCristo is a celebration of a fetish that inhabits all forms of entertainment including television, theatre, comics, music, advertising and multimedia. AntiCristo is unique study of a taboo subject: ecclesiastical erotica. With its encyclopedic scope it stands as the definitive bible of Nasty Nun Sinema and Culture. This book is a fully cross-referenced work of staggering scholarship, which is the result of eight years worth of obsessive research. (Amazon)
