On Ash Wednesday old Joseph Winter is found murdered. He has been crucified on his farm gate by unknown killers. As the plot unfolds it becomes apparent that a supernatural force is the cause of it all. A nubile virgin, Magdalena Winter (Dagmar Hedrich) orphaned at a boarding school for girls become violated and possessed by an invisible demon which exits the corpse of a recently deceased Satanist. Possessed by the evil spirit she acts blasphemy to the church by tearing a Bible apart and asking for communion not in her mouth but straight in her pussy. She also shouts obscenities to people and walks around naked a lot of times.

Does it ring a bell, of course, The Exorcist (1973). This German flick is a pure rip-off of The Exorcist but it was directed by sleaze director Walter Boos of Schulmadchen Report franchise. Dagmar Hedrich never made into the scene but here she all has to do it on her own, voice and acting. a thing Linda Blair never had to do. Her voice was dubbed. Dagmar only made 2 flicks.

Is it watchable, yes it is but only if you are into sleazy sexploitations. By language and acting it goes a lot further then The Exorcist but of course the effects never made it a classic in the (s)exploitation genre. Still, being hunted down by the geeks it's a really hard flick to get your hands on. It isn't out on DVD or Blu Ray, it's only available on VHS and even then it's extremely hard to get. Now and then it pops up on TCC VHS, a Japanese release. fully uncut. but highly priced. Through networks I was able to catch that release.

There isn't that much of blood in it, once she spread her legs in front of the camera two guys have to fight to make love to her, one is stabbed and that's the only time you will see blood. It is sometimes a bit boring in the parts were doctors are talking about Magdalena. I can understand that some will be offended by the words of Magdalena. The rape scene's by the invincible creature, the sound of the fly, a bit of animal cruelty, grindhouse galore.
