A surprisingly effective return to the Exorcist cycle (1978), made with extravagance and some flair. Tony Curtis, sleazier than ever, is a fake spiritualist desperate to find out why Susan Strasberg is growing a fetus on her back. It's worse than he thinks. Undeniably trivial, but there is something appealing in the way it gets wilder and wilder. Director William Girdler was killed in an accident a few months after the shooting, which is a loss. After such disasters as Grizzly and Day of the Animal, he appeared to be hitting his stride. 104 min.
