An adaptation of Matthew G Lewis's Gothic novel finds Nero as the religious celibate who has to face the wrath of the inquisition after bowing to the sexual temptations of one of Satan's servants - but he manages to elude punishment, and turn the situation to his twisted advantage. Directed by Bunuel contemporary Kyrou, this has a great story, and a great performance from Nero.
