I actually own this movie... it's the best of the worst.
14 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

I read through all the other reviews and I can tell some people get it and some don't.

This is definitely one of those "so bad it's good" movies. Matter of fact, this may the best of those types of movies.

If you are thinking of watching it to get scared, don't. It was made in 1977 and it's a B-movie. You are not going to be scared.

If you are going to watch it because of cheerleaders.. well maybe. There are half naked bumbling cheerleaders in it. But again.. it was made in 1977!

But if you like really campy satanic B-movies, you are going to love it.

The first time I saw this was when I was just a kid and TV's still had UHF. Back then, scary movies would come on late at night. This came on during one of those times and I saw at a very young age. It stuck with me my whole life.

Later, when Amazon.com started and DVD's were not yet common, I had Amazon find this movie for me. They did, and I have a really old copy on VHS.

Basically, if you look at the people on here that rated it bad. They still watched the whole thing. If it was really that bad, they wouldn't be able to finish it.

So the truth is that it is a bad movie, but still a totally watchable movie and a fun movie to watch. So in that case... it's actually a good movie... actually a great movie!!
