Sleazy,dirty and enjoyable trash.
17 August 2008 | by See all my reviews

A sadistic priest Paul Vogel played by Jesus Franco himself makes his living by writing pornography for a S&M magazine.His publisher Franval praises Vogel's work for its authenticity unaware that the mad priest draws inspiration from the exorcisms and inquisitions he undertakes in order to save sinners' souls.Vogel discovers that Franval and his cohorts indulge in satanic games and embarks upon a new series of divinely inspired murder.Of course there is a team of investigators hot on the trail of this sadistic sex murderer.I saw this film under the title "Exorcism".It's a typical Franco's chock full of sleaze and misogynistic violence.There isn't much gore to speak of,but plenty of whipping,rough sex and knife play.The killing scenes look very cheap and the story is paper-thin.However if you are a fan of depraved smut give this one a look.
