Walter Boos directed this German knockoff of The Exorcist (1973) using the pseudonym "Michael Walter." Magdalena (Dagmar Hedrich) is an orphan at a girls' school who gets possessed by demonic forces. She goes into convulsions, curses a great deal, and makes furniture fly around the room before being hypnotized and exorcised. Werner Bruhns, Gunter Clemens, and Rudolf Schundler are among the solid cast, and former model Hedrich is quite good, despite being forced to act much of the film naked and vomit snakes. Not quite the best of the European possession rip-offs (that might be Anticristo), this one will still manage to hold the interest of genre devotees.
