It’s The Exorcist, Italian style, in this Satanic shocker from director Alberto De Martino (Shadows in an Empty Room). In Rome, a beautiful young woman (Carla Gravina, Alfredo, Alfredo) is left paralyzed by the trauma of a horrific childhood accident. But when placed under hypnosis, she is seized by visions of her past life as a heretic and becomes a foul-mouthed seductress with a taste for perversion that leads to her defilement by Satan himself. Now, mankind’s only hope for salvation is a harrowing exorcism that will either cast out the Devil forever or open the door for the unspeakable birth of the Antichrist! Mel Ferrer (Nightmare City), Arthur Kennedy (Killer Cop), George Coulouris (Citizen Kane), Alida Valli (Suspiria), Umberto Orsini (Violent City) and Anita Strindberg (Almost Human) round out the cast of this puke-spewing cult classic, with cinematography by Eurosleaze king Joe D’Amato (Beyond the Darkness) and music by maestros Ennio Morricone (The Good, the Bad and the Ugly) and Bruno Nicolai (A Full Day’s Work). Experience The Antichrist, also known as The Tempter, in all its uncut—and unholy—glory!
