Tania, an asylum patient, is under the doctor's care while suffering raging behavioral effects that follow the death of her exorcised mother.

Who knew Spain made these movies in the 70s?

The titles are a la James Bond, but that's where the similarity ends.

Very cheaply made and the print has turned red with age so it makes for some hard watching..

Plus I saw this on Roku and you forced to sit through annoying McDonalds commercials -- the same ones over and over again-- every 12 minutes. What a downer.

The film itself is slow and boring and is not exploitative enough to be of interest to fans of the genre.
