Editorial Reviews

Hollywood legend JOAN COLLINS teams up with cult stars DONALD PLEASENCE and CAROLINE MUNRO in this terrifying tale of a demonic baby! Lucy (Collins, DYNASTY, LAND OF THE PHAROAHS) is a former dancer, having moved up in the world via marriage to the wealthy Gino Carlesi (Ralph Bates, HORROR OF FRANKENSTEIN, TASTE THE BLOOD OF DRACULA), and now comfortably settled down. Lucy is expecting and when the time comes, she goes to the hospital to give birth to the baby. The new-born infant is no ordinary baby, either, as it slashes Lucy upon leaving the womb.

Customer Reviews

A good horror movie for its time.
Kevin
Have you ever watched a movie that was so RIDICULOUSLY BAD, that you watched it all the way through just to see HOW FAR "the bad" would actually go?
Onnie
Not A classic but is watchable especially since it has good actors Ralf Bates and Donald plesence in it.

This film from 1975 known under a number of titles such as "The Monster", "I Don't Want To Be Born" and in its US release the more interesting "The Devil Within Her" always seems to raise feverish opinions among viewers ranging from it being a complete piece of cinematic junk, an awful camp classic rip off of "The Omen" and "Rosemary's Baby" that is not to be missed, right through to it being an interesting film from the then popular "Demon Baby" genre that flourished in the early 1970's. I personally love this film despite being well aware of all its very obvious short comings. Accused of being a pale imitation (of sorts) of the earlier mentioned horror classics I personally feel the film explores another angle on the demonic child idea with some admittedly unintentional laughs along the way. Filled as it is with horny curse delivering dwarfs, strippers, determined nuns and Ralph Bates struggling with an extremely uneven Italian accent (why did they have to make him and his sister Italian in the story?) the film perhaps for the wrong reasons will definitely stay in your mind after a viewing.

"The Devil Within Her" was produced around 1975 in the dying days of the great British companies such as Hammer and Amicus and in some respects this film does resemble the later products of those legendary film companies. Despite the often bizarre storyline elements the film does however have some very strong points to it. A terrific cast is headed by Joan Collins who really does give her all to her role as Lucy, the mother who becomes scared of her own child when it begins to display an extremely nasty side to its character behind the innocent facade. Joan once again proves what a good actress she can be even when dealing with slight material.

The first couple of minutes (although certainly not intended) put me in mind of what it might be like to be intimate with Ms. Collins . Acting never was her strong suit . Ralph Bates is a poor parallel parker . I can portray a German person about as well as Mr. Bates portrays an Italian one here . It may be best to succumb to "little people" . Joan Collins is pretty . "Seedy and nasty" workplace her's . I like Donald Pleasence . He's always solid and fun to listen to and watch act . Nuns can be quite demonstrative (no pun intended) . Some children are just plain bad . "Accident's get stranger every day" . Handwringing seems to be cathartic . I need a copy of this film . It's a truly BAD film (in the best sense of the word) . Worth a fish in the stream Netflix . Nice dancing sequences . It does not hurt to be an Anglophile . I'll be resuming my review of this film presently . I do recollect the hilarious stock footage of an adorable baby from yesterday . Let's finish up . The lengthy dream sequence is a hoot , with vaseline on the camera lens (like Penthouse mag) and culminating with Mr.Bates in drag as his Nun sister . Eyes rolled up to show his whites only . Very fun + amusing . More nude dancing (with a whip this time out) . Absolutely marvelous T and A picture . Mediocre television score . Perfect . Sudden wind sounds like an Italian horror picture . Malevolent little person in a tree . Running . Dialing . "Lucy" . Acting for the fences while perspiring . Knife . Cut back to dance club . Cut to walking Nun . Rites at cribside . I'll close out now . If you LOVE bad cinema (like myself) , you MUST see this picture . Load of laughs .

In THE DEVIL WITHIN HER, an exotic dancer named Lucy (Joan Collins) is cursed by an eeevil dwarf named Hercules, who puts the moves on her. She spurns his advances, so Hercules puts the hoodoo on Lucy, causing her to give birth to a huge, incredibly strong baby. This is cheeeze in its purest, most hilarious form! Attempting to cash in on the "devil trend", started by ROSEMARY'S BABY, and turned into a full-blown phenomenon by THE EXORCIST, THE DEVIL WITHIN HER fumbles every opportunity to be the least bit frightening. Thankfully, these miscues result in one of the funniest movies I've seen in quite a while! From the totally non-threatening baby himself, to the nun who only wears one, unchanging expression of angry disgust; the characters are a hoot! Let's not forget the goofy strippers, or Hercules, whose best scene is his death-by-nun during the silly finale! Up until then, we only see him in the baby's crib (!!) whenever Lucy hallucinates! Donald Pleasence seems stunned throughout as the all-too serious Dr. Finch. Yes, we do see Ms. Collins naked, for a few nano-seconds, during what must be one of the most horribly filmed love scenes in any movie! Enjoy...

The film is ok.Not A classic but is watchable especially since it has good actors Ralf Bates and Donald plesence in it. I noticed a couple of small sound dropouts during the film.I was able to try a second copy it also had the dropouts.Probably not a glitch just in the sound elements used for the disc.

I think that the best part of this movie is that is was made completely straight. It's like no one involved was aware of how ridiculous the whole story is. It seems that back in the early to mid '70s, the trend for horror films was demonic possession. In this film, you have Lucy (Joan Collins) who has just given birth. Prior to her marriage and pregnancy, she had been some sort of dancer. I'm not quite clear if she was a stripper. I say this because while other dancers who worked for the same employer were clearly strippers, Joan is clothed and does a routine with a dwarf named Hercules in the one dance we see her do. Anyhow, after her last performance, Hercules decides to get all touchy-feely with Lucy but she's not interested. Instead, she beds Tommy, the club's manager. As she and Tommy leave the club, Hercules curses Lucy and says she will have baby who will be possessed by the devil. So, ok, you've got the set up. The baby is born, he grows rapidly (I guess...he didn't seem that big to me) and then starts to kills just about everyone who gets near him. Oh yeah, Lucy is married to Gino, whose sister, Albana, is an actual Catholic sister. There are all sorts of unanswered questions, some of which the movie proposes and some of which a viewer might have. For example, sometimes Lucy looks at the baby and sees Hercules, so...is Hercules demonic? Is it Lucy's imagination? Does the baby turn into Hercules when he kills people? How does Hercules have the power to curse or possess a baby? See, eventually, Albana attempts an exorcism, which has an affect on Hercules, but between his curse and the exorcism, Hercules is largely absent from the film, except when Lucy looks at the baby and sees his face. So, is Hercules a demon himself, or is he engaged in some kind of witchcraft?Read more ›
