NUN STORY: FRUSTRATION IN BLACK REVIEWED
“Nun Story: Frustration in Black” proves one thing. Nikkatsu loved working on erotic films. While Corman fled to the Philippines to make his Women in Prison movies, something far more carnal made its way to Japan by the early 1980s. Far beyond the kind of fare you’d find on Cinemax late at night, these movies played short and almost seemed like punishment. The narrative was barely there, but they all reveled in making life miserable for the lead.
A similar American feature would go out of its way to give the leads some sort of redeeming factor by the end of it. In a Nikkatsu movie, you’re lucky to have survived. This 69 minute outing features an imprisoned nun who becomes pregnant after a sexual assault. Explain the pleasure of that one to me, Yoshi. If you can hang with it, then you’ll get to see what becomes of Sister Maria. If you can’t handle it, well…I’ve got another Nikkatsu movie coming up.
That one is about school girls! People still have a thing for school girls, right? Sailor Moon is still a thing?

After a brutal assault, Maria discovers she is now pregnant. Knowing it is strictly forbidden for any nun to have relations with men, Maria must figure out how to escape her own living Hell!
