There's a quote on the back of the box saying that it has gore and sex at the highest level, but the film has absolutely no gore at all. If you want gore and violence in your possession flick, then you'll definitely be disappointed. You'll also be disappointed if you're expecting any gruesome possession FX work because there's none. The possessed girl acts and talks dirty, but she doesn't become ugly or vomit stuff like in other similar films. The entire film takes place at this gothic mansion which was a great place to film it. The scenery is excellent, it has some good atmosphere, is well directed, and the acting is pretty good. The film is mostly visual by concentrating on nudity, sex, scenery, and atmosphere; but it does have some parts that get talky. Some people might think these parts are unnecessary, and this may bore some people a little. The main possessed actress is really attractive; this is supposed to be her only screen role. Another woman, Patrizia Webley, has been in other Italian exploitation films. She's an older woman but is also very good looking. Not only does the film contain abundant and explicit full nudity but also hardcore inserts, but the hardcore inserts in the film aren't from the cast; nobody on the set did hardcore for the film, and they were added in later with the body doubles. I don't want to spoil the film, but there's a funny sexual death scene involving some mute old crippled guy who barely moves and lays in bed. The film feels really sleazy at times, but it's also well crafted and the budget looks decent; it doesn't look really cheap like some other Italian exploitation films. The place where they filmed it really helps the quality of the film.
The DVD doesn't have a directors interview, but there's an interview with the cinematographer and Maria Giordano. The quality is great. The picture is sharp with excellent color and contrast.
Malabimba The Malicious Whore opens up with a rather atmospheric if not creepy scene where a seance is taking place in the family castle. As soon as the medium contact a spirit, things go haywire as one might expect. The lawyer's pans are unzipped and he is fondled by the demonic spirit. A woman's blouse is ripped open exposing her assets. Then the spirit proceeds to attack Sofia Sofia although she doesn't give in completely to temptation. Lastly, there's the teenage girl whom the spirit knows is pure of heart and possession of her soul is inevitable.
Poor Bimba (Katell Laennec) spends most of her days alone in the family castle garden just reading books or playing with dear teddy bear while dodging the snakes that have found a new home in these gardens. It's enough to drive any young teen completely stark-raving mad. Her widowed father has Bimba's best interest at heart but can't really devote a great deal of his attention to her as he still grieves for the loss of his wife.
Grandmother is afraid of losing the family castle but feels that her son should re-marry his brother's unfaithful wife in order to keep the estate. Although very much attracted to this voluptuous beauty Nais, he scoffs at the idea although she continues to try and seduce him for the next half hour of the film. Perhaps the plot here could best be compared to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice by way of The Exorcist only much more sexually explicit.
At first, no one seems to suspect that Bimba is possessed until they notice her rather strange or abnormal behavior which includes using filthy language at the dinner table amongst guests while grabbing for the chef's crotch. Within a few scenes, Bimba spies on her whorish aunt during her sexual escapades only to be caught by Sister Sofia. She even makes a pass at her beloved father who remains utterly clueless as to the rash behavior he continues to witness.
Sister Sofia (played by the beautiful Mariangela Giordano) understands Bimba's need for comfort and support only to realize she's going to end up bargaining with a demonic force in order to save this young girl' soul. At this point, we are still unsure of whether Bimba has been possessed by a demon or if ancestor Lucrezia is taking over the poor girl's body.
While the gore factor is practically non-existent, Malabimba does have a very creepy atmosphere and proudly exhibits some rather sexy material although rumor has it the integral hardcore scenes were not performed by the original cast. Even without the added footage which adds a few extra minutes to the centerpiece, Malabimba is a very sleazy film and will likely appeal to only those who seek adult entertainment.
Andrea Bianchi would go on to direct the more popular and accessible zombie flick Burial Ground within a year of shooting Burial Ground. To the best of our knowledge, Katell Laennec never made any other films after shooting Bimba and little is known of her whereabouts to this day.Recommended!
A niece is having oral sex with her disabled uncle in the basement. He dies of heart attack then. As a main figure, she plays
around her body and with the living-in nun in a soft core style.
Actually, this movie is about a wealthy family secret in ways of marrying to keep the estate (Castle) and forbidden sexual desire . Apart from the hardcore scenes, the movie is banned in two areas for its involvement with a nun and a teenage girl. Shocking.
For parents with Catholic religion and/or daughter, this movie offers no entertainment. Otherwise, this movie openly gives out information that is possible but not probable. That said, this movie leaves viewers to decide/vote.
