Your Decades of Horror 1970s Grue-Crew thought it was time to check out something from Amando de Ossorio other than a film in his infamous “Blind Dead” series, and that’s how they ended up covering Demon Witch Child (aka, The Possessed; aka, La endemoniada) on this episode. Despite loving Tombs of the Blind Dead, Doc quickly recognizes Demon Witch Child as a very poor attempt to cash in on the success of The Exorcist (1973). Despite it being a mess of a movie, he admits he has fun watching it. Chad is a little harsher, in fact, guaran-damn-teeing he will never watch Demon Witch Child again. The only positive thing about a low-budget movie like this, according to Bill, is that you get real-looking people in the roles, leading him to wonder what nightmare would result if the little boy from Burial Ground (1981) and the girl from this film had a child. Jeff thought the so-bad-it-was funny dubbing was hilarious, almost like a “Bad Lip Reading” video.

As you may have guessed, your 70s Grue-Crew can’t recommend Demon Witch Child, unless, of course, you are an Amando de Ossorio completist or your thang is bad dubbing. Seek it out at your own peril. 

Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror 1970s is part of the Decades of Horror two-week rotation with The Classic Era and the 1980s. In two weeks, the next episode in their very flexible schedule will be The Haunting of Julia (1977), chosen by Jeff. Be sure to join them for that one.
