"How far can you go looking at strange celluloid material, like this movie? It does better at being melodramatic than stupefyingly horrific, which explains how I ran into this title called EXORCISM'S DAUGHTER (U.S. title). Despite the misleading name, there is still reason to go nuts. This may be one of the most warped out experiences you can ever step into. Set in the 19th century time period, you're still looking at another drive-in flick where nothing possibly goes right. The biggest focus concerns bitchy asylum patients in plain cloth, played by inexperienced women without a union. They're really good at banging utensils on the dinner table, making sense. There's something so strange about Tania's character. What's going on, and why does she go bananas? The answer provides a special flashback that is the only horrific scenario about this wicked masterpiece of insanity.

The movie is worth noting on two important things. One is that it's a very early asylum - exorcism feature. Two is an actor named Francisco Rabal, who appeared in the recently discovered foreign film classic BELLE DE JOUR. A horror movie it sure ain't, but you might as well be flying over the cuckoo's nest and having a ball with this one. Unless you can stand the pure aggravation of things to come..." (Jason C. Atwood/Imdb)
