Alucarda - They gave their souls to Hell... but the Devil wanted MORE!

Convents: they're all well and good, but a functional convent rarely makes for an entertaining movie. Luckily for us, we have an entire genre based on what happens when good nuns - or their young charges - go bad, and demented Mexican movie Alucarda (Sisters of Satan) must rank amongst the most grisly, camp and compelling takes on the theme.
