Directed by Carlos Puerto
Starring José María Guillén Mariana Karr
A nudity-filled, ultra-obscure oddity from the post-Exorcist, pre-Halloween horror era, this so-bad-it's-funny terror tale dabbles in sex, lesbianism, virgin sacrifice and swinging.
A couple on a drive run into an apparent old college friend, who convinces them to spend the night in his mansion. Sure enough, the strange man turns out to be a satanist who, with his hot wife, worships the dark one nude in front of the fireplace.
A disastrous seance with a Ouija board, followed by a fireside orgy, ultimately unsettles our protagonists, who try to get out of the house only to discover that their car won't work (!). Plus, their dog (whom they brought along for the fun) is now missing.
Considering how low the budget was for this -- it basically just features four characters, our heroic couple and their satanist hosts -- it's pretty entertaining, and even manages to have a story. Some of the funnier moments involve the dysfunctional Satan worshippers: The witch wife repeatedly chides her warlock husband for failing to kill himself properly the first time he tried to commit suicide!
There's plenty of nudity, bad '70s music, a Star Wars poster and a lot of bad acting. This made its way to video in the '80s and has since faded into oblivion. Made in Spain, it was also released as "Don't Panic" and "Escalofrio."

Posted by Christopher on May 2, 2010A masterpiece. I saw it 8 times now. They sure don't make them
like this anymore. Carlos Puerto is a genus. He's not afraid to take us where no director alive today has the courage to do so.
Very raw, sexy hot movie and scary. It is my favorite horror movie of all time.
