An American Haunting

An American Haunting (2005) is based on the FACTUALLY DOCUMENTED Bell Witch saga in witch, uh, which a ghost of a freshness-expired parishioner of the black arts torments a Tennessee family in 1817. Off to a good start.

An American Haunting

The Bell family daughter is visited nightly by an unseen force that rips at her nightshirt and blankets and throws her around the room as if an empty beer can. Her screams are making it tough for anyone else to get some rest.

This goes on and on until the Bells invite a preacher over for dinner and the holy moly man sees for himself the demonic transactions. Through flashbacks we see glimpses of things that in the end add up to something worse than a ghost, who everybody believes is the totally upset spirit of a neighbor John Bell (the dad) swindled out of a land business deal. If only it was that easily explained.

Deviating from the FACTUALLY DOCUMENTED Bell Witch story, the conclusion, while steeped in the supernatural, reveals that John Bell had a hankerin’ for his nubile young daughter and made unwanted midnight visits to her room. Ugly subject matter made worse by disguising it as a ghost story.

The real Bell Witch isn’t gonna like this one bit.

Art of the Devil

In Art of the Devil (2004), Boom is a supermodel hot Thai gal who uses voodoo to blackmail her wealthy boyfriend into giving her cash money bling for knocking her up. Oops — he’s married and has a family. Awkward.

Art of the Devil

Hell hath no fury like a supermodel scorned. Enlisting the black magic skills of a local barber by day and voodoo master by later in the day, she puts the ex in expire. She invokes him throw up a whole pile of razor blades. (I’m no expert, but aren’t those things supposed to be used on the outside of the stomach?)

Art of the Devil

Flashbacks abound with the character-heavy story showing how she was hit by a van and lost her baby. She later gives the fetus to the voodoo barber who puts it on his black magic hibachi during a ceremony. I could’ve done without seeing that.

Blood flows all over everyone’s white clothes, which is a nice contrast. Boom finds out in the end it’s not cool to kill people with the Black Arts. Anyone else left standing, well, their wounds will heal in time for the sequels (there are two more). As for the barber, I wonder how much he charges for a little off the top?

Evil Sex

Satan’s Baby Doll

Despite Satan’s Baby Doll (1982) title (Satan doesn’t appear, he just licensed his name for this production), this half-baked Euro-sleaze tale about sex from beyond the grave does have its rewind moments.

Dad kills mom for sleeping with everybody but him. Geez, lighten up, Francis. Mom returns as a naked ghost spirit that possesses her mega-hot teenage daughter to continue her sexing ways. The uncle is a paraplegic who is attended to (i.e., hand-bathed with the glory of the washcloth) by a supermodel/nun.

Satan’s Baby Doll OK, she’s not quite ordained yet, but she wears the right clothes until bedtime. Then she takes ’em off to reveal thigh-high silk stockings and high heels. No point in adding a bra to this functional yet stylish casual attire.

When possessed, the teen daughter exposes her religion-proof body and wanders around the family’s castle, looking for someone to do. Dad is hooked on drugs, dabbles in the Black Arts, and tries to make it with the nun, but she ain’t having “nun” of that. Heh.

Mom returns from the grave – nude as naked could be – to seduce dad to death. But drugs have made his bacon under cooked, so he has to go away. Too bad he had to die with Mr. Wink dangling through his unsecured bathrobe. That can’t be anything but embarrassing.

Satan’s Baby Doll

Mom, though, wants to pick up where she left off with the nun (aha – that explains the inherently sexy underwear), but needs her daughter’s body to do it. The nun, though, wants to set the daughter’s soul free. To do this, she has to get naked and… I’ll let you connect the rest of the dots. Use both hands.

Satan’s Baby Doll

This Spanish lurid horror sex romp (aka, La bimba di Satana) at least had hot women if not a hot plot. Man, I wish I lived in a Spanish castle with an unsecured bathrobe and supermodel who could assist me with my daily hygiene rituals.
