Mexican director Lopez Moctezuma was a collaborator of legendary director Joderowsky (El Topo, Magic Mountain).The film has a similar storyline to Ken Russell's The Devils graphically showing the disruptions to a convent by a young woman - Alucarda.
Using the techniques learned from his theatrical background in the late sixties Panic theatre movement, Moctezuma builds up to a whirlwind of choas for the climactic last act of the film, the copius blood, screaming and nudity evoking a performance art piece rather than a straightforward cinema show.
As intense as Texas Chainsaw Massacre, this is an intelligent, strange and shocking movie at last seeing the light of day on DVD.

ALUCARDA Special Edition - Looks at the theme of DRACULA from a new angle - hence the title.
The story of two apparently vampiric possessed girls in the company of strangely attired nuns takes a long time to get going, but the shocking scenes in the last half hour will linger in the mind.
The movie is very atmospheric with sparse but effective gothic type sets and appears to have been made on a zero budget yet is still strikingly effective, particularly Tina Romero who is STUNNING in the title role - beautiful, mesmerising and silent in a long black dress (when she's not naked, over-acting and screaming). She looks like a fashion icon. Mexican ladies certainly know how to scream!
I expected a dubbed movie, but although it is Mexican everyone appears to be speaking English which is a pleasant change in a horror movie of this type.
The Mexican director Mocetzuma certainly knows how to shock an audience and in the final scenes the image of the nun mirroring the image of Jesus on the burning cross is an incredible stylish and inventive move.
The movie on this Mondo Macabro DVD looks like some original well-used print complete with white speckles, but despite this the movie is sharply focused with plenty of blood-red colour!
Watch the movie for an inventive unforgettable experience like no other!
I originally gave the movie only 3 stars, but on reflection the inventiveness of the above scene alone has got to be worth an additional star! KAN

For those that like their exploitation to look good as well as feel grimy, try this 70s Mexican effort. It's obvious from the off that the director is no hack - this film looks lovely, Like Valerie and Her Week of Wonders but with added blood and nudity. The story is simple - Alucarda is possessed by the devil and she in turn possesses her new friend. Together they bring their convent school to its knees! Some of the images here are pretty taboo and it must be said the two lead actresses look a little young for this kind of fare, but what the hell, its great to see a film that delivers the goods and doesn't hang around long enough to bore the viewer with 'plot' or 'message'. It's a treat horror fans - snap it up.
