“Many 1970’s Italian horror films tried to rip-off Hollywood hits “Rosemary’s Baby”, “The Exorcist”, or “The Omen”. Well this one tries to rip-off all three at the same time, and the result is a completely incomprehensible mish-mash. As near as I could follow, the film is about a coven of middle-aged female Satanists who begin to have buyer’s remorse over the deal they made with the Dark Prince after he targets their nubile teenage daughters (perhaps this is supposed to be a metaphor for former 60’s “flower children” reconsidering what the social changes of that era had wrought by the late 70’s?). Three of the women band together to fight back against their infernal master.” [imdb]
