Ippolita is a paralyzed young woman with serious mental problems stemming from the death of her mother. Her crisis of faith and the intervention of a well-meaning psychologist lead Ippolita to remember her past life as a witch during the Inquisition. Eventually, Ippolita becomes possessed and starts seducing local men, only to kill them. An exorcism seems to be the only solution to stop the madness.

Alberto De Martino’s “L’Anticristo” is definitely one of the better Italian possession flicks. Carla Gravina is excellent as a wheel-chair bound,sexually frustrated Ippolita. The photography is stylish and the score by Ennio Morricone and Bruno Nicolai is outstanding. The special effects are quite mediocre, but there is a nice amount of sleaze to satisfy fans of Italian horror. The infamous goat orgy scene is rather unpleasant and hard to forget. So if you like Italian horror movies give this one a look.
