Film Movement Plus Serves Up Two Cult Arthouse Shockers

Film Reviews: “Il Demonio” (1963) and “The Reflecting Skin” (1990)

by Joseph Perry

Il Demonio (The Demon)

It’s pretty much a given that no demonic possession film released after 1973’s The Exorcist will ever come close to matching that classic movie, but a decade before William Friedkin’s feature caused a sensation, Italian/French coproduction Il Demonio (The Demon) addressed the subject in a gorgeously shot, terrifically acted effort.
