Title: excorcist/omen rip offs
Post by: zombie #1 on August 03, 2017, 03:14:36 PM
especially 70s/early 80s ones

Ive just bought CATHY'S CURSE (1977) based off some of the imdb reviews. hoping for a potential bm classic!

I quite liked fulci's MANHATTAN BABY (1982) which seemed to pilfer from both excorcist and omen, with his own weird twist

I also saw the joan collins abomination I DON'T WANT TO BE BORN (1975) which was truly awful, and not really in a good way imo. more tedious than fun


any opinions on the above 3? or any others of note in this rip off genre? good bad or indifferent will do...


(I should point out that Im a massive fan of The Omen, but strangely dont get The Excorcist hype at all.)

You should love CATHY'S CURSE. Of course, "bm" means something other than "bad movie" for that flick.

Another pretender to the throne would be DEMON WITCH CHILD. The possessed moppet in this film provided the dubbed voice for Linda Blair's character in the Spanish release of THE EXORCIST, so she was the right choice for this rip off. Beware the plushie attack scene; you may die laughing.

This is the BEST Exorcist rip off.  NSFW and very un-PC.

yeah watched it last night. some classic moments of bad oldskool horror. especially liked the english psychic medium lady

weird how the whole film seems to be filmed in red + black, which I assumed was just cheap old film, but in one scene her eyes turn bright green

never heard of Demon Witch Child. making a mental note to check it...

Frankly, I kinda took CATHY'S CURSE to be a story about a young girl starting menstruation. Mood swings, sudden and weird sexual overtones, and more than a bit of mean-spirited evil. Eh, I'm giving it too much credit, I think.

I'll never forget the line "She's seen me! Kill her!".   :bouncegiggle: :bouncegiggle: :bouncegiggle:

nice theory, but yeah probably going deeper into it than the makers did.



Im thinking THE VISITOR (1978) might kinda fit into this as well. crazy film anyway, only saw it recently.

ABBY (1974)
I bought this on VHS from Video Vortex in 1995-a bootleg thats about as washed out as the trailer I'm gonna post.
Kinda adds to the sleazy factor. Some very imagintive profanity that they couldn't put in the trailer!
I loved it.
Oh-CATHY'S CURSE-loved it.

I watched ALUCARDA (1975) with my freind Ethan-the punk guy.
He asked me-"What is wrong with you?"
He's a born again Christian now.
What a p***y.
(that was 3 years earlier when we watched it-this was the same man who ran his truck while drunk into Decoy Duck bar while hammered-)
"Satan Satan Satan!"

I just ordered beyond the door 2 dvd... funny how some semi-obscure 70s horror DVDs are cheap as chips and some are ridiculously expensive.  that one was cheap!

This is a strange one-because it's an occult creepy ass movie from 1971.
It scared the s**t out of me-just so creepy.

WARNING!  :hot:
This is NOT safe for work!
It's not porno-but dam close!

And if you just watched that-you watched what was worth watching.

DON'T DELIVER US FROM EVIL. Come on, RC. That's a great movie about puberty and the loss of youthful innocence. Solid performances, direction, and writing all around. The scene you posted was the most shocking and exploitative; one of the reasons it was banned in a number of places.

It was intentionally patterned after the true story of Juliet Hulme and Pauline Parker, who, as young girls, conspired and killed Pauline's mother in 1954 when the girls were 15 and 16, respectively. Peter Jackson made HEAVENLY CREATURES, which uses the same source material.

Juliet Hulme grew up to become Anne Perry, a respected mystery/thriller writer.

WTH did I just watch?  It's like a Color Climax scene without the climax.  If you know Color Climax, you'll know what I'm talking about.  If you don't know Color Climax, Google it when you have a bit of privacy.

Beyond The Door 2 came, watched it last night...

some really bad dialogue which i enjoyed. recognised the kid from something else I think? what is it with kids in 70s italian horrors, theyre always so weird and annoying!

not the biggest fan of Daria Nicolodi but she was ok in this. she always reminds me of a schoolteacher for some reason
