Director Al Adamson was known for producing schlocky dreck capitalizing on whatever exploitation theme was most likely to turn a buck. Here, he combines The Exorcist (1973) with soft-core titillation, and the result isn’t quite as dreadful as one might expect. The acting, sets, and script (while rambling) are all passable, and while the early “possession” passage is humorously cartoonish, later effects (with Roy continuing to haunt and taunt those he’s left behind) are mildly effective. None of this is meant to recommend the film, but rather to say — it could have been even worse.
