Dimitri: Let me live! I can't stand the pain! The pain!
Jessica Barrett: Pain? What do you know of pain? What do you know of the pain of sweet endless hatred, the loneliness of living always in another's body, the knowledge that you will never be yourself? Nobody knows THE EXQUISITE SUFFERING OF THE DAMNED, but you will, Dimitri, because you will die in my image!
Dimitri: You lied, lied, you lied, you lied!

The king of rip-offs!
5 October 2000 | by (cincinnati, ohio) – See all my reviews

This might be giving it too much credit, but I would venture to say that this film is the king of rip-offs. Like so many other horror flicks of its day, this movie lifts its plot from THE EXORCIST, and also seizes the opportunity to "borrow" elements from ROSEMARY'S BABY. Juliet Mills plays the wife of a successful San Francisco record producer who becomes possessed by you know who..... Mills(the older sister of Hayley) is a very beautiful and supremely gifted actress, but the repetitive and repulsive script has given her very little to do but spin her head and spit up pea soup. Co-star Richard Johnson is also a talented actor who is severely misused. Director Hellman went on to make a JAWS rip-off entitled TENTACLES. That film also features a great cast at their all-time worst.
