"Satan's Baby Doll (La bimba di Satana)" Review

Synopsis: In the crypt of the remote castle of the Aguilars lies the recently-deceased body of Maria. Her husband Antonio is a jealous bully, his mute brother Ignazio is in a wheelchair peeping on his caretaker Sol, a novice. Also present are Miria, the couple's virginal daughter, and Isidro, a factotum who fears Satan's power. A frequent visitor is Juan Suarez, a doctor who wants Miria in a sanatorium for a month. She doesn't want to go. Isidro tries to exorcize the castle's evil spirits. Bodies pile up. Is Miria's mother truly dead, and who is Satan's tool?

After taking 3 times of watching this film I finally made it through. Of the many sleazy films I have seen over the years most of them for the most part do a great job at delivering the sleaze without fail, but in this case Satan's Baby Doll failed. The things that fell short for me with this film was the lack of true depravity, creepiness which I thought it'd be filled with. Instead you get a film that moves way too slow and has no shock value at all. I really had high expectations for this one and what really drew me towards it was the badass cover and the description of the film. Now there is some parts in this film that I did enjoy and that was the acting of Jacqueline Dupre and the soundtrack to the film. Overall I found this film to be a disappointment but I can recommend this to anyone who is looking for a eurosleaze type of film that is more on the mild side of the genre. I give this film a 2 out of 5.
