Quotes

Dr. Simon Andrews: [making a phone call after Susan's demonic tantrum in his office] Roni, I've got a problem. No, it's a patient. Let me explain. My initial diagnosis was extreme schizophrenic regression, manifested by inner impulses and outer physical projections, including vocal and facial fantasies. Yes! Yes, one session, just now. Roni, I've never seen anything like it before. It's one of the reasons that prompted this call.

Campy B-movie horror flick.
18 March 2016 | by Fella_shibbySee all my reviews

Saw this in the late 80s on a VHS. Revisited it recently on a pirated DVD. The print was kinda VHS ripped, grainy n all. The movie was cheesy n non scary. Some scenes were shown in poor lighting but the special effects n make-up done by John Carl Buechler (Celler dweller, troll, hatchet, etc) were pretty good. The nudity from Bobbie Bresee was just the ticket, and the gore was nice and splattery. Bobbie Bresee was naked more often than not and either seducing or humping different men. Best scene her boobs turning into two demonic heads. Hilarious was the end scene wher the guy keeps on laughin for no reason.
