Alice, Sweet Alice - If You Survive This Night... Nothing Will Scare You Again.

Alice, Sweet Alice is a nice little chunk of psychological grey-matter shafting slasherism from 1976 America, although it was originally released as Communion it was re-released as Alice, Sweet Alice in 1978 and then again as Holy Terror in 1981.

Satanico Pandemonium: From Bride of Christ to Slave of Satan

Distribution company Mondo Macabro are eminently reliable purveyors of lurid, rare world cinema and - praise the Lord - Mexican flick Satanico Pandemonium (AKA La Sexorcista) is no exception. All the ingredients for a one-off viewing experience are there: nuns both clothed and unclothed, blood, lesbianism, oh, and a guest appearance by Old Scratch ...
