Devil Within Her (1975)
Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.
This weird British hybrid of The Exorcist, Rosemary's Baby and It's Alive! stars Joan Collins as a stripper who spurns the advances of a lecherous dwarf and is subsequently cursed by a monstrous baby -- which emits horrifying demonic howls and attacks everyone within reach, including his parents, his nanny and the family doctor (Donald Pleasence). A final exorcism is attempted by a nun (Eileen Atkins), for what it's worth. No clear explanation is given for the link between the spurned dwarf and the demonic influence placed upon the homicidal tyke (even the countless Italian Exorcist knock-offs usually maintained some sort of twisted logic), and the considerable potential for horror in the killer-baby concept is not explored thoroughly enough to keep viewers involved. Also released as I Don't Want To Be Born. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi … More

Critic Reviews for Devil Within Her
Stock your bar and put in your IUD, because this hilariously over-the-top Rosemary's Baby knockoff wants to get you pregnant with its ridiculous brilliance.
An entertaining, stylish, cheesy rip-off of The Exorcist and Rosemary's Baby, that delivers the laughs.
Audience Reviews for Devil Within Her
Okay, strap in for this one, because it gets pretty silly/hectic as things go along...
Joan Collins is a stripper who ignores the affections of a dwarf (never a good thing to do) and finds herself cursed by him, so when she and her new hubby have a child, the baby is a puzzlingly violent creature that attacks everyone who gets near it, making mom's life an especially hellish experience. She eventually turns to her nun sister for help, but it may already be too late...
Silly fun from the '70s, and the alternate title of 'Sharon's Baby' is especially puzzling, as there's no one in the film named Sharon?!?
