This was the type of film you saw, with the very LURID exploitation adverts in the paper - and it lives up to the hype as to nudity and the Euro style of horror, and the cheese to go with it. If you remember going to the drive in each weekend to see these import films and running to the snack bar in between features - this will appeal, but for persons looking for a serious demon possession type film, nope -- Euro explotaiton at its top notch, just not more than that.

[MAGDALENA aka 'MAGDALENA, POSSESSED BY THE DEVIL' - (1974) - directed by Walter Boos]
An old man is found crucified by a streetwalker in a German village. Miles away at a remote boarding school in Munich, the man's granddaughter suddenly begins to exhibit very strange behavior as though she were demonically possessed and now spews obscenities (instead of pea soup) and runs around naked (instead of bug-walking on the ceiling). Yes, friends, this is yet another attempt to capitalize on the huge international success of 'The Exorcist', this time by the Germans and, like all other attempts, there's more unintentional humor than horror in the finished product. But that never stops dolts like me from watching them, so why would it stop the producers from making them?

I had higher hopes for this one since it was directed by Walter Boos, one of those responsible for the long-running German 'Schoolgirl Report' films. I knew it wouldn't be good, but I thought it would be an interesting collision of genres. But it winds up being William Friedkin by way of Ed Wood Jr., which is both its weakness and its strength, assuming you've broken out the bong and hard liquor when the credits started. It does have some mildly interesting moments, like the grandfather's crucifixion, when the possessed 'Magdalena' rips a bible in half with her bare hands and, oh yeah, the heaping of frontal nudity heaved our way. While actually not much more foul-mouthed than your average teenager today when she supposedly 'shocks' us with her sacrilegious profanities, I had to chuckle at the scene where she informs a priest she wants to take communion, but not in her mouth...(Again, I wonder why I scare people).

This is a badly cut version of the dvd leaving out nudity,plot points to make it a watchable horror-exploitation film.Plus it has cuts in it that make the dvd very jumpy so you know its cut.I owned the vhs and I know of what I speak.I bought the dvd in hopes it was the complete version but it isn't even close

It is barely a direct transfer from the vhs version on dvd- horrible quality. But, on the other hand, we really couldn't expect a remasterized version for this really obscure and unknown german b movie. It is a limited of 500, so we're lucky to see it on dvd anyway.
