To the Devil a Daughter

(1976) ***1/2

I really liked it, but then again, I like almost anything with Christopher Lee in it. I think his nose hairs hypnotize me! Hahahaha! My favs with him range from his Satanic movies down to being Willy Wonka's daddy :).

So, being a Hammer Film, I had great expectations, and I was not let down. There was good ole Satanic goodies in this, but Satan was not the object of affection! It was Astaroth(Ashtaroth, Astarot, Asteroth)prince of accusers and inquisitors! The Demon Prince who rides a winged beast, you know, this guy..But, the movie makes him look like a gold christ on an inverted cross. Oh well.
Summary as follows..An American occult novelist battles to save the soul of a young girl from a group of Satanists, led by an excommunicated priest, who plan on using her as the representative of the Devil on Earth. That is where the whole thing is confusing..but he kept calling Astaroth, God. Either way..it had neat effects for being a 70's movie! I think I like the older horrors, now that I'm seeing them! I finally saw Black Sabbath this past spring and I loved it! What? Oh, yeah. So, the effects were great..you see a man burned alive(heehee), things flying across the room, some weird gold-guy sex scene, and this little cutie that I'm not sure if there was something sexual going on or she was trying to shove it up her vag..!
Ain't he a cutie! So, I do recommend this movie, specially after almost pulling my fucking hair out after watching Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter!! UGH!!!

Jeez! I just looked at the Wiki entry for this movie and it said there was controversy because Natasha Kinski did a full frontal scene while only 15!

Then I did a Google Image search and immediately spotted the offending image but with Gretchens covering the offending bits. Ha!

It was Catfreeek's review. And we're all discussing her age afterwards.

Haha! I'm so happy that comes up on a google search.

Nice review, I liked this one too but I am also partial to Christopher Lee.

That's hysterical about the Gretchens!!!! I bet a lot of people have tried to find a picture of that naked teen only to be blocked by Gretchen. Gretchen has left our little blog and is now haunting the world!

I'm dying for the day the real Gretchen stumbles into herself.

Catfreeek said...

and then sues us all for slander, baahahahaha

Oh my god, that picture is freaking hilarious!

That would be the Natasha Kinski picture - not that freaky thing at the bottom of the post.
