October Horror Movie Challenge Day 1 (#horrormoviechallenge)

The Devil Within Her has the awesomely sexy Joan Collins, similarly sexy Caroline Munro, latter-day Hammer star Ralph Bates, and Donald Pleasance. Lucy (Collins) is a former stripper who was cursed by a rapey dwarf when she spurns his advances. Nine months after her marriage she has a toothsome and scratchy 12 pound baby that proceeds to make her life hell.

Verdict: Could have been worse. I am sick at the moment, and was drifting in and out. Made by the Rank company, so has some Hammer elements going for it.

First of all that poster is freaking me the F*CK OUT! This film reminds me of a similar movie called the BROOD where a woman had little demon babies who killed everyone she was mad at...I was given the book to read by a priest while I was in the hospital for tonsilitis - TRUE STORY.

The baby legged knife hand is pretty gruesome, innit? It was not as scary as Rosemary's Baby, but weird and creepy.

I don't like horror. But Joan Collins? :)

funny, I saw nightmare on elm street by accident when it came out, for some reason I didn't realize it was horror.

Wasn't a great movie, but it's not the worst ever. Cool post!

@Dave some people might argue Nightmare was not very scary. I might be one of them.

@CJ it likely helped to be delirious. :-)
