During the Middle Ages in France: At the stake a witch curses all present with the fact that their daughters will take terrible revenge on them. The curse affects Lady De Winter, who is investigating and comes across the two sisters Kathleen and Margaret, who were admitted to a convent at a young age. Kathleen often has lascivious episodes, to the displeasure of her faithful sister Margaret. When Kathleen is also supposed to end up at the stake as a witch, Margaret rather involuntarily makes a pact with the devil to take revenge on the Inquisitors and Lady De Winter.
The Nuns of Clichy is a relatively elaborate project by Jess Franco, who stretches the thin plot to almost two hours. The mixture of witch-hunt, sorcery, torture and a lot of naked skin has the typical Franco Flow, therefore a clear recommendation if you know what you're getting involved with.
The film was already released in April 2014 in the USA from Redemption on Blu-ray. The language selection was French with optional English subtitles. On November 20th the film was released in the UK by Nucleus Film on Blu-ray. The same transfer as for the US Blu-ray was used, in addition the bonus material contains the reconstructed US cut version with the English sound.
There are some, mostly subtle, differences between the US BD and the UK that Stephen Thrower has outlined in a Facebook Post.
