The Reincarnation of Isabel Review
By Christopher Null on Tuesday 21st November 2006
Renato Polselli's most notorious film, The Reincarnation of Isabel deserves all the praise and disgust that's been heaped on it for 30-some years. The story here is next to nonexistant. Ostensibly it's about a witch being reincarnated, but really this is just an excuse (and a poor one at that) to alternate scenes of delusional sex orgies with scenes of women being unclothed, stabbed, and burned at the stake. In the tradition of stylistic '70s Italian horror, none of this makes a lick of sense. But at least the ladies seem to be having fun. It ain't Ilsa, but it's, er, something.
Aka Riti, magie nere e segrete orge nel trecento.
