Movie Info

When the daughter and wheelchair-bound brother of a recently deceased aristocrat are placed in the care of a lecherous nun, the atmosphere around a remote Italian castle becomes thick with dread and debauchery in director Mario Bianchi's masterpiece of Euro-sleaze. Antonio is the latest in a long line of wealthy landowners. A merciless brute who abuses women, steals his brother's pain medication, and buries the rotting corpses of anyone who dares cross him deep in the cellar, Antonio is husband to insatiable nymphomaniac Maria. As the film opens, Maria has died. But this is only the beginning of the abhorrent events about to unfold in the castle, because the nun responsible for bathing her daughter and handicapped brother soon becomes overtaken with a dark sexual urge that leads to commit the ultimate act of sacrilege, and the once-innocent daughter embarks on a frenzied rampage of sex and murder after becoming possessed by the vengeful spirit of her late mother. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

A remake of Malibimba, The Malicious Whore, this film involves a possessed young girl tormenting those around her in a crumbling old Gothic castle, and it's got some nicely sleazy moments to recommend it! Rental!

Boring horror-themed eurosleaze from Italy all set in a mansion where the spirit of the dead former owner possesses her daughter and plots revenge against the sinful other household members. It could have been a half decent film had it not focused too much on the sleazy stuff as the locations and sets where of a good standard and would have provided a good atmospheric and spooky backdrop had they been used better. There's no gore, no decent kills and no scares so it's the sexy goings-on that steal the film with its ample amounts of nudity and perverted situations, including a very naughty nun. The film wasn't completely awful but I can't say I'll be coming back for a second viewing anytime soon.

Despite it's rather nonsensical plot, this was a moderately entertaining movie for the Italian Sat-ploitation genre. It featured some decent directing, a chilling musical score (though it was obviously a ripoff of Halloween), and a really cool cover. Shades of Sleepaway Camp were apparent, though considering they were released within 1 day of each other I'm not sure if either could've influenced the other.
