Lisa and the Devil (Mario Bava, 1974)

Lisa_Devil_AB_04203

Lisa and the Devil… I had a DEVIL of a time sitting through this one, if you know what I mean  I liked the way the butler sucked his candy and smoked his cigarettes. I didn’t like the way the lead actress was like a Viagra pill for most of the male characters, her face is off, not ugly… just off. I wouldn’t call it attractive. I think that’s why she gets naked, because, if you don’t have a pretty face, you have to make up for it somehow. I liked the TRIPPY dreams, not the “normal” dreams. Only the misty kind of floating through green pastures and making love in the jungle kind of dream. I’m mixed on the attempted rape that was interrupted by a screaming skeleton doppelganger. Wish the whole thing made a little more sense, was a little more stylized, and was up to par of the American talent involved… Americans ALWAYS do it better, remember this kids! Also, more about the devil, I can’t stress this enough. We Love the devil, we want more of him. I don’t know what else to say, I wanted more of this, less of that, and a hotter actress, though it would be nice if she got naked too.

    Don’t be stupid. Americans can’t hold a candle to Italians when it comes to fantasy films.

    I was being facetious.
