“Drugs, Lesbianism, The Slaughter Of The Innocents And A Voluptuous Ex-Miss Sweden… What More Could You Want From Cult Horror?” – FilmFour.com
“Delivers Everything Its Title Promises: Nuns Doing Dirty Deeds And Lots Of Bloodshed… A Heavenly Helping Of Bad Taste!” – Horror Digital
“A Wonderfully Trashy Film… KILLER NUN Has Everything A Eurosleaze Lover Could Ask For!” – Monsters At Play
“KILLER NUN Delivers The Goods… Bluntly, Nakedly Exploitative, But Also Not Without A Measure Of Intelligence And Craftsmanship!” – DVD Talk
“KILLER NUN has one of the worst nuns of all, as Sister Gertrude smokes, drinks, uses morphine as recreation, and is addicted to dirty, kinky sex, with whomever she can hook up with…Blue Underground’s Blu-ray presentation is allowed passage into heaven, as KILLER NUN is well recommended!” -- Fusion3600, Blu-ray Authority
“KILLER NUN benefits from a great performance from Anita Ekberg and enough sleaze to keep most exploitation fans interested. Blue Underground gives the film a nice high definition upgrade in the audio and video areas… Overall things shape up well here!” -- Ian Jane, Rock! Shock! Pop!
“KILLER NUN should have been called PSYCHO NUN, with faded sex symbol Anita Ekberg biting into the meaty title role based on an actual person… Blue Underground's new Blu-ray disc presentation is a definite improvement over their standard DVD release of a few years ago!” -- Casey Scott, DVD Drive-In
“KILLER NUN has a great story and I’d have to say is my favorite from the subgenre of nunsploitation. I recommend both the movie and the Blu-ray!” -- John Shatzer, Gutmunchers
“While not high art, it never was meant to be; as a B-level thriller with blood on the brain, it works… Team Underground gives the film its usual expert job!” -- Rod Lott, Oklahoma Gazette
“Once again Blue Underground has delivered what will more than likely be a definitive home video release of a little known film. Remastered from the original uncut negative, KILLER NUN has never looked better!” -- Erik Candiani, FOX 31 Denver
“I would think that those keen on the genre will eat this up. It's hard not to get into KILLER NUN to varying degrees. Blue Underground continue to release strong Blu-ray products!” -- Gary Tooze, DVD Beaver
“While one would expect KILLER NUN to be exploitation trash, it is a fairly well made film and a decent psychological thriller… As usual, Blue Underground gives its fans another great transfer!” -- James Klein, Unrated Film Magazine
“Blue Underground has significant home theater value as a distribution line focused exclusively on movies that lie off the beaten path (to say the least), and in this regard, KILLER NUN is another notable title - the movie looks and sounds significantly better than I would have ever imagined on Blu-ray!” -- Mike Restaino, DVD File
“A lot of nunsploitation, a little bit giallo, a smidgen of art, and altogether loony… Blue Underground’s HD release of KILLER NUN offers a transfer that’s much better than the previous DVD…and a significant upgrade in the audio department!” -- Tom Becker, DVD Verdict
“KILLER NUN isn't going to drop jaws the way it did back upon its release, but it’s still a risqué and satisfyingly sleazy romp that sports a few ‘oh they didn’t’ moments and a surprisingly solid story that holds it all together. Blue Underground’s presentation is, as always, well above par, and fans of this curious little sub-genre should have no reservations about adding this one to their collections!” -- James Reilly, Horrorview
