Sexorcism DVD (Satanic Adult Double Feature) (NTSC Region 1)

Sexorcism DVD (Satanic Adult Double Feature) (NTSC Region 1)
SEXORCISM 2-DVD Collection featuring THE DEVIL INSIDE HER (1977) and SACRILEGE (1971)
SEXORCISM (1971 / 1977)
starring TERRI HALL, RUTH ANN LOTT
From the vantage point of the 21st century, the 1970s seems like a wild and woolly time, a period when artists and entertainers took advantage of the strides made in the 1960s and created work that was ground-breaking… and in many cases uniquely bizarre. The two "adult" films included in the Sexorcism collection belong in the latter category — they’re gonzo creations that mix horror clichés with hardcore action, contain surprising plot twists, and boast the sort of tacky costumes and makeup that scream "Seventies!" They are also wildly sincere, meaning that even though the moviemakers worked for purely commercial reasons, they added perverse little grace notes to exercise their imaginations and, in the case of The Devil Inside Her, to indulge a dark taste for sex.

The directors of both pictures have acquired cults, in no small part because of the singular strangeness of their output. The director of Sacrilege (1971), Michel J. Rogers, may have coined the term "incredibly strange" that has been used to describe cult/camp favorites, but Zebedy Colt, the man who made The Devil Inside Her (1977), seems to have been an incredibly strange figure off-camera as well as on. Whatever the case may be, they both made adult cinema that was light years away from the deadeningly predictable fare churned out today.
