Following the terror trail of rattles and bassinets set forth by Rosemary's Baby, this Movie of the Week further fueled the public's fascination with Satanism. The Devil s Daughter delivers a young woman into a nightmare world when she learns her mother had promised to her to Satan when she was in infancy. Now of legal age, Lucifer has sent his earthly minions to claim his property and to make sure she is betrothed to the demon of his choice. Starring Shelley Winters (The Poseidon Adventure), Robert Foxworth (Transformers) and Dark Shadows star Jonathan Frid, The Devil's Daughter offers a candle-burning, wind-rustling, spooky time in front of the TV with the lights turned way, way down.
This small-screen Rosemary's Baby clone stars Belinda Montgomery as a young woman targeted by a group of Satanists. It seems that Belinda's soul was purchased from the Devil when the girl was born, with payment due when she reaches the age of 21. Shelley Winters is at her overbearing best as the head of the cultists, while horror-flick vets Joseph Cotten and Jonathan Frid do their utmost to create the proper demonic atmosphere. Colin Higgins (Harold and Maude), who moved on to such prestige projects as Silver Streak and Foul Play, conjured up the script. --nytimes.com
Well...it seems to me that this film has got something of a better reception than it deserves, but even so; The Devil's Daughter is a more than adequate made for TV story of devil worship. The film takes obvious influence from the likes of Rosemary's Baby as it features a largely innocent character finding herself in the world of demons and their worshippers. The plot focuses on Diane Shaw; a young woman who returns home for her mothers' funeral and is then adopted by a friend of her mother, who also happens to be a devil worshipper. To say any more than that would give too much away, so I won't. --imdb.com
