Wild, malefic psychedelic occult pot-boiler from Gallic sleaze-hound Marcel Mercier., 23 January 2014

Wild, malefic psychedelic occult pot-boiler from Gallic sleaze-hound Marcel Mercier. There's more than a pungent whiff of De Sardean maleficence in this ultra lurid confection. If Kult doomsters Electric Wizard made films, this would be one of 'em! With the glorious exception of personal fave Jean Rollin, la belle France is not really known for its frequent explorations into the satanic oeuvre, so that is all the more reason to embrace Mercier's unexpurgated trawl through the occult mire. Much of this delectable filth is redolent of Jess Franco's 'Exorcism', and not just a little from Coffin Joe's Pandora's box of inflamed phantasmagoria. And I must mention the wondrous heavy-vibe electronic score by Eric Demarsan. Tip Top!
