The 1970's: Rex Romanski (Michael Reed) is pretty much the king of the
dancefloor, he's young, is looking great, is a great dancer, is friends
with star DJ Manuel (Brandon Luis Aponte), and thus he can have any girl
in the club he wants, for the night at least ... and thus he leaves behind
half a ton worth of broken hearts.
Tonight, Rex has set his sight on
Rita (Ruth Sullivan), a hot disco broad if there ever was one. Actually,
she is so hot Rex wants to meet her again after a typical night of sin.
However, he forgets her immediately when the very next day at the club he
meets his favourite pornstar Amoreena (Sarah Nicklin), and the two of them
hit it off on the spot - and actually become lovers. And when Amoreena
after the typical night of sin asks him to appear in one of her porn
flicks with her, Rex is more than happy to comply ...
Rita of course is
less than happy about all of this, and it's hardly surprising since Rex
has ditched her right there on the dancefloor without even telling her (in
fact she thought he was still dancing with her when he was already
chatting up her successor), so she plots revenge. And oh, there's one
thing I should probably mention about Rite: She's a bloody voodoo
priestess, and via black magic, she turns Amoreena and her two
rollerskating co-stars (Ali Johnson, Aurora Gabrill) against Rex at the
pornoshoot, and it's more than a small wonder that he survives the
bloodbach that ensues and also manages to break her out of her
voodoo-induced trance. More instances of possession follow though, and
eventually Rex figures he's in need of an exorcist. But when his brother
(Alexander Lewis) whom he has figured to be a catholic priest turns out to
be a common pervert (and I know most of you think "same
difference?" when reading this)m his best chance turns out to be the
weird cleaner (Rick Tretheway) of his favourite club, a wannabe catholic
exorcist whose standard equipment doesn't even include a crucifix ... and
whose head of course gets blown off first when Amoreena has another fit of
possession and kills most of the club's guests.
So ... will Rex be able
to exorcise the demon that possesses Amoreena herself? And will he be able
to face and defeat Rita in the flesh? Take a wild guess ...
eccentric Babette Bombshell plays a (male) porn producer by the way.
not kid ourselves, the title "Disco Exorcist" suggests utter
stupidity - and there's nothing essentially wrong with that. However,
instead of going completely over-the-top, Disco Exorcist remains
surprisingly subtle (well, comparatively subtle at least), as it does not
go for simply moronic humour and cheap (1970's-themed) jokes but pays
loving hommage to that period's no-budget sex-, horror- and of course sexy
horrormovies - and actually gets it right at least most of the time, from
the special effects and colour charts used back then to the bargain
basement (and yet effective) special effects and the use of all those
weird characters and character actors. And above all of this, the story is
real fun as well ...
So what can I say, fun - and not only if you're
into 1970's horror erotica!
