Linda's (Lina Romay) 18th birthday is only days away when her father
Patrick (Guy Delorme) starts to receive calls from a certain Lorna (Pamela
Stanford), a woman with some supernatural powers who has helped Patrick to
get immensely rich, but asks for his daughter to be handed over to her at
age 18 in return. Of course, with Linda's 18th birthday approaching,
Patrick refuses, but Lorna has long found ways to pull Linda over to her
side, ways that include sex of course. But Lorna would prefer to have
Patrick hand Linda over to her, and when he refuses, she uses her powers
to kill his wife (Jacqueline Laurent), then makes Linda her successor.
With the wife dead, Patrick grabs a gun, pays Lorna a visit and shoots her
... but when he returns home, he finds his daughter in his bed, stark
naked and legs spread. It doesn't take her long to succeed in seducing
dad, then she stabs him, because she is Linda no more but Lorna, having
her revenge ...
Jess Franco-regular Howard Vernon plays Lorna's violent
servant, Franco himself a doctor at a weird sex clinic.
the Exorcist is pretty much a typical Jess Franco film: There is
nudity aplenty in this one, filmed in some rather unusual ways, there is
an abundance of kinky costumes, and Franco is just perfect in capturing
contemporary architecture and mixing everything together in a dreamlike
way to some triplike music. The story of course makes little sense, but
somehow that's not a problem with this and many of his other movies ...
is though, Lorna the Exorcist does not rank among Franco's best
films, for this it's just a tad too long (~ 100 minutes) telling a bit too
simplistic a story, and it lacks the irony that makes Franco's best films
so great. It's still a fun piece of nostalgic erotica though, just don't
expect a masterpiece ...
