Torn between sexual desire, her vows of chastity and her fears of eternal damnation, a medieval nun struggles with her sanity. Bordering on madness, she seeks solace in the savage words of sexual denial that are spoken to her by a disturbing ‘Death Nun’ vision. Her sanity is further threatened by the imagined figure of Magdalen, who challenges her concepts of sex as an evil| malignant force. In between these discussions the nuns mind is filled with brooding| violent sexual fantasies that push her into a world of blackness| blood and orgasmic self destruction.

Sacred Flesh has continued to provoke controversy since its original theatrical release in 2000 and has regularly featured in the press and in TV documentaries where the clips of lesbian whippings and crucified orgies still shock.
