An Exorcist ripoff from the School Girl Report director
10 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film under the title Magdalena and enjoyed it for what it is. Most complaints can be answered the same way.

Magdalena is a stupid film - Yeah, it's by the guy who made the Schoolgirl Report films.

The horror element is weak - Yeah, it's by the guy who made the Schoolgirl Report films.

The film is unmemorable - Yeah, it's by the guy who made the Schoolgirl Report films.

The film is technically inept - Yeah, it's by the guy who made the Schoolgirl Report films.

There are only two questions one needs to know the answers to. Does Magdalena deliver on the exploitation goodies? Yes. Is it boring? No. I don't know what else to write. The girl gets possessed, kicks at invisible dogs, plays the piano naked, gets men to kill for her, and vomits up a plastic snake. Good times!
