Malabimba, The Malicious Whore (1979)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Andrea Bianchi (Burial Ground) directs this Italian rip off of The Exorcist, which adds some hardcore footage to the mix. Katell Laennec plays a teenage girl who becomes possessed by her dead, whore mother and soon starts acting out in sexual ways. I've probably seen about five or six of these Italian rips of The Exorcist and this one here is probably the best, although that's not saying too much. If you've seen the director's cult zombie film Burial Ground then you'll have the idea of what to expect from this movie. The entire thing is silly, over the top and at times downright funny, which I don't think was the intent but oh well. The performances are actually pretty good as is the photography but the rest is pretty much camp entertainment. Some of the sex scenes manage to be quite erotic but the added hardcore inserts don't work and come off looking very cheap. The teenage girls sexual desires range from molesting her paralyzed uncle to having sex with her teddy bear so those against this type of thing shouldn't even bother with the film. There are plenty of beautiful, naked women running around throughout the film, which is never a bad thing especially when they're Italian. The film gets to be too long for its own good and it could have used some editing but God knows there's a lot worse out there.
