  1. If you only look at the title and you have seen the trailer then you know that you are in a treat of exploitation. By saying that I mean, if you think that you are going to see a horror flick full of gore and blood forget it. This is way back memory lane when grindhouses galore.

    The way this flick was filmed and been edited was so typical 70's style. Naturally it was shot with camera's nowadays but they added the scratches afterwards like you see on those old flicks. The use of lighting was also done like in those days with green lights when there is horror for example. Everything worked out fine on that department. The colours being washed and the bad sound editing, you know what I mean. The use of 'Shot Missing' wasn't that funny but okay, it was done back then so no probs with it. So far so good.

    You can easily see that the makers do know their stuff of the seventies. When we are at a porn shooting just look at the posters behind the director, The Teacher, so 70's. And that they used roller-skates in their porn reminded me also of those old roller flicks. The way the opening credit was done was also an ode to the genre.

    The acting itself was believable too. naturally for some it will be over the top but if you know your stuff then, again, those old ones had that too. The story do falls a bit down halfway the flick but picks up fast again. I can't understand why Michael reed or Ruth Sullivan hasn't made it further in the business.

    But then the flick itself. There is naturally gore in it and red stuff. But it is all added with some humour on it. I won't spoil it all but you will see what I mean, just watch the end. There is one shot that really pulls out the intestines and I must say that the effects used were really good. Don't take it all too seriously, the shoot for a porn flick do have some comedy elements. But you have heard me say a few times porn. Don't expect to see some porn, that isn't in it but there is a lot of nudity in it. Maybe one complaint on that part, they all had shaved armpits, something not done back then. But there's full frontal male and female nudity and so much gratuitous nudity that if you love Kleenex you will need a package to wipe your smut away. The possession of one of the girls does look like acting but again go back into your collection and see that it was done that way. I guess a lot won't understand this flick but for those who dig seventies sleaze I surely recommend it. I enjoyed it a lot and made me think of Boogeyman (1980) or trash like that. It isn't a roughie just pure exploitation sleaze.

  2. Suave swinger and womanizer Rex Romanski loves and leaves evil black magic priestess Rita Marie.

    Made like a 70s grind house flick. Was hoping for something better. It's slow on the exposition although it's got some hot chicks in it. Also, there's more voodoo than devil possession.

    They do try with a little budget.

    But it'snot enough.

  3. Ah the 70's the age of bell bottom pants, leisure suits, discos, gratuitous unprotected sex, pornography you had to go to a theater to watch in sticky seats, and all of that cocaine. Yes I don't know how we ever got out that decade without blowing up the planet after a cocaine fueled binge. Which brings us to this film. The Disco Exorcist is an homage to that decade, that those of us who lived through keep having nightmares about, but does it brilliantly. The film stars Michael Reed as Rex Romanski the womanizing, cocaine snorting, amateur porn star, disco dancing fiend. Rex plays the field but unfortunately plays the wrong field when he messes with Rita Marie (played to the nines by Ruth Sullivan). When he dumps Rita on the dance floor for famous porn star Amoreena Jones (played by Michael's wife Sarah Nicklin)Rita unleashes the forces of Hell and voodoo on them both. Who will survive and can they stop the fury of the scorned Rita? Well you have to buy the DVD to find out and let me tell it is well worth it. The cast is rounded out by Brandon Luis Aponte as Manuel Rojas the owner of Rex's favorite disco club and Richard Tretheway who practically stole every scene he is in as Angel the janitor/defrocked priest. Again I can't stress how much fun this film is with enough over the top nudity, sex, gore, and drugs lots and lots of drugs to please the most jaded film fan.

  4. Suave swinger and womanizer Rex Romanski (smoothly played to hip perfection by Michael Reed) loves and leaves evil black magic priestess Rita Marie (marvelously essayed with lip-smacking wicked aplomb by the foxy Ruth Sullivan). Naturally, Rex incurs Rita's lethal wrath after he spurns her for bimbo porn starlet Amoreena Jones (an endearingly ditsy portrayal by gorgeous brunette Sarah Nicklin). Can Rex figure out a way to stop Rita's subsequent rampage of revenge, murder, and murder as well as reclaim the soul of his new gal before it's too late? Director Richard Griffin, working from a blithely trashy and tongue in cheek script by Tony Nunes, crams this beautifully bent, batty, and berserk beaut with more than enough tasty female nudity (several dudes go full monty for the ladies, too), raunchy sex, decadent drug use, hilariously profane dialogue, pulsating disco tunes, tacky over-the-top gory carnage, and frequently uproarious shameless lowbrow humor to satisfy the warped needs of even the most jaded 70's exploitation cinema aficionado. Moreover, Griffin astutely nails the scuzzy aesthetic of Me Decade drive-in fare by not only vividly capturing the happy hedonistic vibe of the whole gaudy disco scene, but also by making deft use of such period appropriate nifty stylistic flourishes as freeze frames, slow motion, and solarization. The lively acting by the enthusiastic cast keeps the movie buzzing: The three leads all have a ball with their juicy roles, with sturdy support from Brandon Luis Aponte as smarmy disc jockey Manuel, Rich Tretheway as helpful janitor Angel Merisent, Alexander Lewis as Rex's abrasive brother Jermaine, and, in an especially gut-busting bit, Babette Bombshell as flamboyant gay adult movie director Bernie Munghat. Jill Poisson's rough'n'garish cinematography gives the flick a gloriously lurid Day-Glo look. Daniel Hildreth's funky throbbing score hits the get-down groovy-grinding spot. A total scroungy blast.
