The subject matter of The Other Hell has been covered by previous European shockfests, notably Sisters of Satan. This 1980 film (released in the US in 1985) brings little that is new to the story, save for an overabundance of gore. The scene is a convent, where the sisters abruptly decide to abandon God. In His place, they choose the devil. Given the fact that the cast is comprised almost exclusively of women, we shouldn't be surprised that the R rating bestowed upon The Other Hell encompasses nudity as well as violence.
