‘When the Devil calls, she comes…’
Satan’s Baby Doll – aka La bimba di satana – is a 1982 Italian horror feature film directed by Mario Bianchi, and is a remake of Malabimba from 1979.
The film features adult movie diva Marina Hedman, trash movie queen Mariangela Giordano, Aldo Sambrell and Jacqueline Dupré. The latter stars as a innocent teenage girl possessed by the wicked spirit of her dead mother; a slain woman who seeks revenge by driving her kin to the edge of sanity.
The daughter and wheelchair-using brother of a dead aristocrat are placed in the care of an evil nun in a remote Italian castle. After becoming possessed by the spirit of her dead mother, the daughter embarks on a rampage of lust and murder…
“Short on plot but very atmospheric and stylishly shot … It’s relatively short runtime actually helps the film’s pace considerably; given that very little actually happens it doesn’t get a chance to outstay it’s welcome. The score by Nico Catanese is probably the best thing about the film with moments of pounding Euro-rock…” Giuseppe Rijitano, 10k Bullets
” … there is enough gratuitous nudity to cover up the shortcomings in the plot, of which there are several, and some well orchestrated and stylish murder scenes. The film is complete tosh, but it is enjoyable tosh … a reasonably good piece of Euro sleaze with plenty of nudity — if you want it to make perfect sense then you’re out of luck.” David Beckett, Film 365
