Naked French Satanists., 9 May 2010
Author: HumanoidOfFlesh from Chyby, Poland

"La Papesse" is a laughable and sleazy account of Satanism and witchery in the French countryside.The director Mario Mercier previously made "Erotic Witchcraft",which like "La Papesse" was a psychedelic,gory and quite silly melange of sex,witchcraft and utter stupidity."A Woman Possessed" has almost everything:whippings,rapes,gore,copious amount of female nudity,naked ladies dancing spasmodically and having sex,hooded Devil worshippers etc.There is even a young macho Satanist,who is wearing heavy metal leather jacket.Hell yeah.The film lacks any morality and has a nice dreamlike quality.If you want graphic sleaze mixed with Satanism you can't go wrong with outrageously silly smut piece.7 out of 10.
