A great parody of "The Exorcist"
6 August 2005 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

This movie,directed and interpreted by Italian comedian Ciccio Ingrassia (Famous in italy for the movies made with Franco Franchi under the name of Franco e Ciccio),is a satyr of the horror hit "The Exorcist",a satyr made in an Italian way.Ciccio is an "exorcist" in a small town in south of italy.The movie opens in Iran (like "THe exorcist") during an archaeological dig,where Ciccio founds a cursed amulet.Then the scene moves to the small town in south italy where the small amulet is found by the eight year old son of the major,Luigino.The child is being possessed and begins to act strange (he destroys a tree by kicking a ball,and so on).The major calls the "esorciccio" and he by chance makes the amulet fall on the ground from Luigino,and the child returns normal.But the amulet is found by the daughter of the major...Then a circle of possessions begins. The movie jokes in an "Italian way" making impossible to understand the movie fully if you aren't Italian,but it is a funny and convincing spoof of "the exorcist". Some notes:This is the last movie that Ciccio directed and the last that he done as a solo artist.The movie was largely filmed in Ciccio's mansion due to the lack of founds.
