This is the story of a girl who wrote a letter to God, and God answered...” A young girl, Maria, is caught in flagrante delicto with her lover by Father Vicente, who belongs to the nearby Serreda Iris cloister. The fiendish clergyman persuades her parents, who are poor and easily intimidated, to put Maria under his protection. She is brought to Serreda Iris, where the nuns seem to have an unusual interest in her beautiful body. After her virginity is proven by the Mother Superior-who is called Mother Alma!-she gets her first undeserved punishment: several layers of thorns are applied to her skin. It soon becomes clear that the monks and nuns of Serreda Iris are actually satanists who perform black masses and lewd rituals to honor the Honored One. Maria tries to escape, but she trusts the wrong person and is brought back. After that, she is questioned by the Holy Inquisition and tells all she knows about Vicente and Alma. The Inquisitor doesn’t really believe her, but the accusation has uncomfortable consequences for the accused. So Vicente tries his best to make Maria revoke her statement. Maria, abondoned by everyone, loses hope, but first she wants to make things clear with the only friend left to her: She writes a letter to God and throws it out of the window. Her letter is found...
Clint Eastwood is a down-and-out cop who is sent on a routine mission to pick up a witness and deliver her to the Phoenix courthouse. Sounds easy until he realizes he's been set up by the man who gave him this simple assignment. The interplay between Eastwood and the witness, a clever prostitute played by the actor's former girlfriend, Sondra Locke, is tough and playful. They obviously had strong chemistry. The story is highly implausible at times, but the action sequences are satisfying. Eastwood directs The Gauntlet very much in the style of his Academy Award-winning Western Unforgiven. Although the body count is surprisingly low for an Eastwood action film, a house, several cars, and a large bus get shot through with more holes than a big wheel of Swiss cheese. For Eastwood fans, this is the laconic hero at his prime.
Is it a nightmare or an actual view of a post-apocalyptic world? Set in an industrial town in which giant machines are constantly working, spewing smoke, and making noise that is inescapable, Henry Spencer lives in a building that, like all the others, appears to be abandoned. The lights flicker on and off, he has bowls of water in his dresser drawers, and for his only diversion he watches and listens to the Lady in the Radiator sing about finding happiness in heaven. Henry has a girlfriend, Mary X, who has frequent spastic fits. Mary gives birth to Henry's child, a frightening looking mutant, which leads to the injection of all sorts of sexual imagery into the depressive and chaotic mix.
Before it became possible (in the late 19th and early 20th centuries) to imprison young heirs and heiresses in mental institutions in order to gain control of their inheritances, greedy families had for centuries "given" their daughters to convents without the girls' consent. Usually, such nunneries were only nominally religious, and their involuntary inhabitants lived a life of relative ease and luxury compared to their genuinely religious (or poorer) sisters. In the film Interno di un Convento, a zealous, handsome priest, who is the confessor for a convent full of such women, encourages the equally zealous abbess of one such institution to enforce the same strict rules on these unfortunate women that are applied to others. In doing so, they uncover a snake pit of sexual couplings, both lesbian and heterosexual, as well as many tools for masturbation. At the same time, a particularly disturbed inmate manages to poison herself and many of the other novitiates in yet another scandal which is covered up by church authorities.

Gestapo’s Last Orgy Under the iron-fisted rule of Commandant Starker is a special prison camp for women frequented by pleasure-seeking Nazis on leave. Disenchanted with the usual Nazi decadence, the Commandant develops a fatal attraction to a beautiful prisoner, Lise, who seems undeterred by the nastiness that surrounds her. It becomes his goal to break her will by subjecting her to some of the most unspeakable tortures and atrocities ever witnessed, including a banquet scene your mind won't easily erase. Years later, Lise lures theCommandant back to the scene of the hate-crimes for some serious closure. One of the sickest entries of the Naziploitation genre, GESTAPO'S LAST ORGY takes a rather artistic approach to its utterly repellant subject matter.

In this adventure, Harris uses his amazing underwater abilities to save mankind from a madman’s (Victor Buono) plot to launch missiles from all the world’s nuclear submarines!

Wilbur Gray (Peter Cushing) is a seemingly eccentric old author who presents his publisher with his latest manuscript. In it Gray claims that cats are the true rulers of Earth, and in the three ensuing stories he expounds this feline theory. In the first story a long-suffering young maid kills the harridan-like mistress of the house, only to be avenged by the old lady's ever-loyal cats. In the second story a family's life is turned upside down when a woman staying with them turns out to be a witch, accompanied by her sinister black cat. In the final tale, a cat exerts a horrifying revenge on its sadistic owner.
