sleazy possession film that is pretty entertaining, 18 December 2004
Author: FieCrier from Upstate New York

Surprisingly sleazy! I was expecting a giallo film for some reason, but it is not that.

After a séance in which the presence indicates itself to be foul-mouthed, accusatory and randy, things get even dirtier. A young woman exhibits the same behavior. Perhaps she's possessed, or perhaps it's her frustrations and acting out against repressed desires.

Some reviews mention a scene with a grandfather, but the video box of the copy I saw refers to the father, but the subtitles in the movie refer to Uncle Adolpho. Perhaps different copies subtitle that scene differently.

The movie takes some ideas from The Exorcist, but seems more Gothic than that, and it was also pretty explicit.
