Storyline

The story in this horror movie involves a young woman's unknowing participation in a satanic ceremony which causes her to be possessed by the spirit of her dead father. She promptly begins exhibiting the standard symptoms - curses, vomiting, and even twisting the heads of a few people 180 degrees. Naschy plays the village priest summoned to perform the rites of exorcism, and must fend off the possessed's lewd advances before casting the evil spirit out of her body. Written by Ørnås

EXORCISM (Juan Bosch, 1975) **
28 January 2011 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

The nth EXORCIST rip-off I have watched (and I still have a few more to go through!), though co-writer/star Paul Naschy reportedly claims it was written before that 1973 milestone. Few, if any, left much of a lasting impression and this one was certainly no exception, the reason mainly being that the victims always turn to be possessed by some dead relative rather than Evil Incarnate!

Despite the title (which, incidentally, it shares with a surprisingly superior effort from the previous year by another Spaniard – Jess Franco – though the plot of that one has nothing to do with demonic possession), the expected rite at the center of the good-vs.-evil battle over a girl's soul only occurs in one brief flash during the last 15 minutes of the film (where the less-than-special effects takes center-stage)! The rest consists of general unruliness and mild swearing (though she intermittently takes to speaking in German and make baffling references to someone called Leonard)!

Naschy is the exorcist, but he is also a friend (and former teacher) of the girl involved: though this ought to have allowed greater intimacy and poignancy to the confrontation scenes, as I said, these almost feel like an afterthought here! The only point of interest, in fact, are the satanic orgies (one of which is disrupted first by Naschy and eventually the Police) – especially since most people in the heroine's household, including a hulking bald chauffeur with a penchant for pornography(!), seem to be involved – and ensuing ritualistic murders. By the way, watching this, it has dawned on me just how many Euro-Horrors are set in Britain (Bristol in this case, albeit the print I watched is, thankfully, in the original Spanish language!).
