Il Demonio

Il Demonio

Directed by Brunello Rondi

Purif is distraught when her lover is betrothed to another. When she summons the old ways to curse him, her erratic behavior is interpreted as demonic possession, and the villagers turn against her. The second film by frequent Fellini collaborator Brunello Rondi, IL DEMONIO is a stunning story of obsessive love, set in a rural Southern Italian village where Christianity has integrated many of the old superstitious beliefs.

Purif is distraught when her lover is betrothed to another. When she summons the old ways to curse him, her erratic behavior is interpreted as demonic possession.

Heavy on the folk magic, which is totally my jam. The print is pristine, and the black and white is luminous.

4/5: Pretty good folk horror. Other movies definitely borrowed elements from this gem.
