There are many mysterious deaths happening in a nunnery, so the church sends Father Valerio (Carlo De Mejo), a clergyman who has devoted his life to science, to investigate. But he fails to come up with an explanation for much that happens in the convent, and ultimately tracks the deaths back to the Mother Superior (Franca Stoppi), who years ago had a child with the devil (!) which the then Mother Superior tried to kill in boiling water - but only disfigured her.

And now ... the child with the devil, Elisa (Francesca Carmeno) has fallen in love with Father Valerio, which her mother cannot permit, that's why she stabs Elisa (don't ask why), but with her dying breath, Elisa brings all the dead nuns back to life and they brutally kill the Mother Superior. And confronted with zombie nuns and everything, Father Valerio goes crazy.


A weird combination of nunsploitation (though with very little nudity) and the then fashionable zombie-genre, The Other Hell is nevertheless a typical Bruno Mattei-movie. Obviously he cannot be bothered with character development or even interesting characters as such, he can't even be bothered with a comprehensible story - but he delivers the goods, presenting the audience with one shock after another, even if the shocks are crude and at times make little sense in the story's context., all done to the music by Goblin he has blatantly lifted from another movie, Joe D'Amato's much better Buio Omega. The result is of course a pretty bad film, but for trashfans like myself, it's also a perfect partymovie, a film that doesn't require its audience to concentrate on the plot too much only to have them cheer at its gruesome scenes and laugh at its incongruencies.

This of course doesn't make The Other Hell any better - just more entertaining.
