Scary Nuns

List by penguin_pete

Where would the horror genre be without the Catholic religion? For some reason, Catholics get singled out in horror like no other faith. If they aren't calling on priests to perform exorcisms, there's a Satanic nun running about. Maybe one too many viewers attended a dodgy Catholic school growing up and there's some connection. Maybe it's because formal nun wear is so easily identifiable. Maybe they know what they're doing by enforcing school uniforms with plaid miniskirts. Anyway, enjoy the nun-sense of the dark side of nun-sploitation!
