‘Get down. To Hell.’
The Disco Exorcist is a 2011 micro-budget American comedy horror film directed by Richard Griffin (Creature from the Hillbilly Lagoon; Atomic Brain Invasion; Doctor Frankenstein’s Wax Museum of the Hungry Dead).
The majority of the film was shot on specifically built sets in Rhode Island, with a total budget of $20,000. Some scenes were shot on 8mm.
The movie stars Michael Reed, Ruth Sullivan and Sarah Nicklin.
Suave swinger and womanizer Rex Romanski loves and leaves evil black magic priestess Rita Marie. Naturally, Rex incurs Rita’s lethal wrath by spurning her. Can Rex figure out a way to stop Rita’s subsequent rampage of revenge, murder, and destruction as well as reclaim the soul of his new adult movie starlet gal Amoreena Jones before it’s too late?
‘I’ll say this for The Disco Exorcist: it delivers what it promises—retro-Seventies raunch, horror, and a bit of comedy. Though the kind of attention to historical detail might not be to everyone’s taste (especially since a lot of people seem to be jumping on that grindhouse bandwagon), The Disco Exorcist is worth a rental for Griffin fans, fans of Troma-style pics, and low-budget horror-comedies in general.’ DVD Verdict
‘If you’re not bothered by the nonstop sex and rampant drug use (so basically, if you have a sense of humor), you’ll probably get a kick out of this movie. At a scant 80 minutes, you could certainly do worse. And ten points to the funky disco remix of The Exorcist’s Tubular Bells theme music!’ HorrorTalk
