Exploitation Alley: The Devil Within Her

While viewing the film that I have chosen for the return of Exploitation Alley, a few questions came to mind: “what is this?” “What the hell is happening?” and of course “Why am I still watching this?” If you ever find yourself asking those questions during any film, most likely you are having a bad time. Unless, you just so happen to be watching a mid 1970s film involving a nun, strippers, terrible Italian accents, a curse, and an adorable possessed baby. If the film you are watching contains all of those elements, then you are watching The Devil Within Her.

This film was released in 1975, and directed by Peter Sasdy. It was originally called I Don’T Want To Be Born, and is also known under the title Sharon’S Baby. This is odd, because there is no one named Sharon in the film. The movie begins with a very awkward birth scene.

Super-8 Politically Incorrect Movie Madness Coming April 2nd to St. Louis

April 2nd at The Way Out Club will be a night of racism, sexism, homophobia, and perversion! It’s Super-8 Politically Incorrect Movie Madness where we’ll be showing a dozen films on Super-8 Sound Film (most in condensed format) guaranteed to offend the sensibilities of everyone in attendance. Prepare to be outraged!

We’re not out to insult or anger anyone with Super-8 Politically Incorrect Movie Madness but to show the ways Hollywood has presented a host of now-taboo topics over the past 80 years. We have two of the infamous censored Looney Tunes cartoons long-banned from broadcast due to their racial stereotyping: Jungle Jitters (1938) and All This And Rabbit Stew (1941) featuring Bugs Bunny hunted by a slow-witted Black hunter who sounds and looks like Stepin Fetchit. We’re showing two of the bizarre pre-code Baby Burlesque shorts: in Kid N’ Africa (1933) Shirley Temple is terrorized by cannibals played by

DVD Review: "The Devil Within Her" (Aka "I Don't Want To Be Born") Starring Joan Collins

  • CinemaRetro
By Lee Pfeiffer

The Scorpion DVD label has released the notorious 1976 British horror flick I Don't Want to Be Born under its American title, The Devil Within Her (It was also known as Sharon's Baby). It's easy to see why this cult movie has gained its reputation, as its a real hoot. Joan Collins stars as Lucy, a one-time London stripper who gives up her wild lifestyle in favor of a more sedate life. She marries a successful Italian businessman, Gino (Ralph Bates) and finds herself pregnant immediately after their wedding night. Trouble is, she suspects the real father is actually her sleazy ex-boyfriend  Tommy (John Steiner), who she slept with the night before her wedding in order to have one final fling. Things are moving along swimmingly with the happy couple living the good life in a tony section of London. However, when Lucy goes into labor, the process

It's that time of year again - pumpkins line porches, bags of candy fill the drugstore shelves, and children everywhere are encouraged by their parents to ring the bells of strangers' houses and demand handouts.

Halloween season also is the one time of year where it's pretty much impossible to avoid horror movies. If you're a horror fan like I am, there's really no change in your viewing habits because you were probably going to be watching Suspiria and The Abominable Dr. Phibes tonight anyway. But if you're only a seasonal horror fan, it can be a bit daunting to navigate the sea of bloody entertainments that flood the airwaves this time of year.

To that end, we've put together a list of over 50 horror movies that are as funny as they are scary (whether intentionally or by accident). Hopefully with the list below as a reference, even the most
