The Films of Mario Bava

Synopsis: Tourist Lisa Reiner (Elke Sommer) encounters the Devil himself (Telly Savalas) while vacationing in Toledo, Spain. Recognizing in her the damned spirit that escaped him, the devil possesses Lisa, who is sent to a local hospital.
Father Michael (Robert Alda), an American priest, accompanies her and tries to exorcise the evil and blasphemous spirit from her soul..but can he discover the mystery of lisa's past identity and the horrors it bore witness too?
This re-structured version of Mario Bava's Lisa and the Devil features additional scenes not included in the original version and was completed by producer Alfredo Leone (who was crediteed with the pseudonym Mickey Lion) after the commercial success of 1973's The Exorcist. Taking the original story in entirely new directions. THE HOUSE OF EXORCISM adds the horror of diabolical possession to an already potent mixture..
