This twisted Italian oddity, originally titled L'Odessa, is an incomprehensible muddle of Devil-possession horror and lots of kinky soft-core sex (its original U.S. title was The Sexorcist). The story revolves around a weird religious icon -- depicting one of the two thieves crucified with Christ -- and the demonic sexual influence it exerts on a young art student (Stella Carnacina). After a gory dream sequence in which the woman imagines herself being nailed to a cross herself, the statue eventually comes to life and begins to sexually torment her ... whereupon the entire film careens off-track into Exorcist territory, where it slogs for an uninvolving and unoriginal final hour.
