Painter Johan Harker (Carsten Frank) could not be happier, he has a
lovely wife, Rosa (Lina Romay), a wonderful daughter, Lucy (Carina
Palmer), his paintings are a phenomenal success, and thus he can afford
himself and his family a life in luxury ... but of course, this happiness
comes with a price, because 20 years ago, Johan Harker made a pact with an
incubus, Lorna (Fata Morgana), who promised him 20 years of happiness - in
return for his daughter Lucy (which Lorna helped to procreate).
Naturally, Harker is reluctant to pay his due after 20 years, and he
even tries to kill the incubus - unsuccessfully, naturally -, but that
makes Lorna all the more determined to get what she believes is hers ...
so she possesses Rosa and drives her out of her mind, to a point where she
strangles Harker to death before dieing herself.
Then Lorna and her minions go get Lucy, strip her, whip her, and to top
it off, Lorna then sodomizes her with a strap-on. Then Lorna disappears,
having done her duty and having made the girl the spawn of Satan
For the most part of the film, it doesn't seem as if even
director/writer Jess Franco himself knew where to go with it, as he seems
rather bored with his subject matter. That the film is grossly
underbudgeted of course doesn't help one bit, neither does the fact that
Carsten Frank totally fails to convince in what is the central role
of the film. It is only the last quarter of an hour of the running time
that the film actually comes to life. Here, Jess Franco once again enters
De Sade-territory and shows his mastery in directing weird, almost surreal
rituals of sex and S/M, not in all that much graphic detail (the film is
strictly softcore) but quite sensuous in a perverse sort of way anyhow. In
itself, this extended sex-scene is totally worth watching - unfortunately
it's not enough to save the film aas such ...
