The devil within

The very first extreme horror movie I ever watched was THE EXORCIST back in '84 when it was shown here on television. I'd just got my first vcr back then and obviously had to tape the film. I'm sure you'll find it entertaining to hear that I never actually watched my tape. I simply found the Satanic stuff too scary and eventually erased it without one single viewing! Yes, much has changed. Yesterday I mentioned watching LEGACY OF SATAN and while going thru my last couple of weeks' purchases it occured to me I've incidentally bought a bunch of horror films and related lobby cards that deal with the subject; First up is my new Italian double disc release of LISA AND THE DEVIL / HOUSE OF EXORCISM and a HOUSE OF EXORCISM lobby card from Mexico:

- And then we have my new dvd + very cool Mexican lobby card of L'OSSESSA (aka The Sexorcist/The Tormented):

- And believe it or not but today I got BLACK DEVIL DOLL FROM HELL on dvd!! Maybe I should start to listen to heavy metal music again. Hmm, where did I put my Iron Maiden records?

Legacy of Satan

I watched LEGACY OF SATAN last night and I'm gonna watch it again tonight. Yes, it's THAT enjoyable. It's trash, it's horror, it's... strange, odd, and weird. Three words that basically mean the same - and it's that weird! It's almost hypnotic. It draws you in! It sucks you in and you can't get out. Oh, and the music (and I use the term loosely) is...
However, why would I write a review of it when Joseph A. Ziemba already did a really good one here: Legacy of Satan.
