| This film was far from a bomb. It could have been better. This genre appeared to be a departure for Ms. MacLaine.|
We tend to associate her talents with the dance, musicals and comedy. The lady can act. All of the performances
were solid. Just as a once over lightly she played the sister of a young man who appeared to be possessed. He was
possessed by the spirit of a hispanic murderer. When his episodes occurred he emulated the character of the demon
within resulting in brutal killings. This type of material can be discarded as utter nonsense. However it is,at the very least thought-provoking. This film is almost unheard of today. It was far better than a production that received the greatest possible box-office hype: "The Exorcist." Now that was a 'BOMB1' The book of the same names was
excellent. And, then, Hollywood got a hold of it .... now, that is a real live horror story!
