Bad Habits - Aussie Nunsploitation!
By: Craig Villinger on March 3, 2009  |  Comments ()  |  Share 
2009 is shaping up to be a great year for Aussie genre films with a whole bunch of productions in various stages of development, but will any filmmakers be tackling the blasphemous Nunsploitation genre? The answer, happily, is yes!

Bad Habits is described as a "troubled journey through the byways and back alleys of a mind out of balance" and tells of Sister Marie Fenche, a woman on the verge of collapse who is barely able to distinguish reality from fantasy after she wakes up one morning, alone in a room, with a corpse in the bathtub. Is she being set up or did she kill the man herself? The truth is not even Marie knows for sure...

Writer/director Dominic Deacon unapologetically refers to his movie a "no-budget effort" that was shot over thirteen hectic days in borrowed bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchens and around seedy rat infested Melbourne back alleys with a cast and crew who were almost all first timers.

Speaking about the inspirations for Bad Habits Deacon cites Nunsploitation classics ranging from Ken Russel's The Devils to the Spanish, Mexican and Japanese epics of the 70s, with a healthy dose of Italian giallo thrown in. "The visual look of BAD HABITS is heavily inspired by directors like Bava, Argento and Martino" says the writer/director. "I love the way they use colour and make use of the wide frame". He adds "I think Bad Habits really feels like it exists in its own world. That's what I like about it most. We drew influences from all over the place but ultimately I think we were able to create something that feels quite unique".

Bad Habits was completed in January after 14 months of post-production. Hopefully we'll be able to bring you news of screenings or DVD releases sometime soon. In the meantime, you can check out a few stills as well as the official teaser trailer below.
