(Juan Lopez Moctezuma / Mexico / 1977 / 77 minutes / unrated)
This cult classic from Jodorowsky collaborator, Moctezuma is a classic 70s Mexican horror film inspired by the Exorcist. Tina Romero is Alucarda (daughter of darkness). She lives in a convent/ orphanage with her friend Justine. They meet some mysterious gypsies in a forest, open a coffin and become possessed by a demonic force...
The film was controversial at the time for the fact that the young girls are involved in murder exorcism and orgies within the convent.
