4.0 out of 5 stars Satanic Psychedelic Eurosleaze Cinema! May 11 2010
By 4-Legged Defender - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
(AKA 'The Reincarnation Of Isabel' 1973)- Before we go any further, if you're going to watch this flick, please do so in Italian with subtitles, as the English dubbed version is unwatchable. Not that anything will elevate this perverse gem of a sexually-overheated occult oddity to the status of a 'good' film, but those of us who revel in such insanity will be able to enjoy properly, as director Renato Polselli ('Delerium') intended.

This one starts with a woman being burned alive at the stake for being a witch to the bass line and percussion of Santana's 'Soul Sacrifice' while some psychedelic credits roll over Mario Bava-esque colors shining on the faces of the attendant villagers, so we know what kind of a schlocky treat we're in store for from the get-go.

Five centuries later, we're witness to a black magic ceremony involving a naked woman chained to an altar while some dudes in red leotards and black capes invoke Satan to reincarnate the soul of Isabel (the burnt witch) who gets a chance to be reborn every night of the 25th moon. You see, Count Dracula was the lover of Isabel the witch, who petitioned the powers of Darkness to become the first vampire, and presides over the reincarnation rituals.

That's the extent of the ridiculous plot; the rest of the flick is all about naked women. Euro babes, to be exact, and we see them being tied up, burnt alive, fondled, scantily clad, buried alive, tortured, in cages, beaten with tree limbs, losing their virginity, getting felt up by vampires, sacrificed, groped by their doctors, pursued by priests and superstitious villagers, in lesbian trysts and all the hysteria and melodrama we've come to expect from these Italian psych-horror sleaze fests. REJOICE or RUN AWAY! (2 stars for the flick, 4 stars for the rest...).

5.0 out of 5 stars WILD SATANIC HORROR / SLEAZE! Sept. 21 2012
By Explorator - Published on Amazon.com
As long as you know what you're getting into you can have a lot of fun watching this overlooked Italian horror / nudie gem. Fans of 70s retro psychedelia / satanic cult movies will love this! It's a continuous horror fantasia filled with delirious depictions of fetishistic & satanic elements and it all takes place in and around a creepy old castle. It has all of the sensational elements you expect in horror movies of its era, it's never boring, and plays much like one long and twisted nightmare sequence. Lots of bloody scenes, some gore, lots of naked women (and yes, they are all GORGEOUS), strange satanic rituals and appropriately mesmerizing music. This movie is a fine example of the kind of movie that many fans of retro horror are always looking for. Sure it's 'cheesy' and melodramatic by modern standards but that's part of why we love these flicks. There is an undeniable charm to its continuous, unabashed displays of stark horror and sleaze. It also gets even better with each repeated viewing. If you like the aforementioned elements you should consider this as a purchase and not just a rental as you will most likely watch it many times.

4.0 out of 5 stars Satanic Psychedelic Eurosleaze Feverdream... April 7 2013

(AKA 'The Reincarnation Of Isabel' 1973) - Before we go any further, if you're going to watch this flick, please do so in Italian with subtitles, as the English dubbed version is unwatchable. Not that anything will elevate this perverse gem of a sexually-overheated occult oddity to the status of a 'good' film, but those of us who revel in such insanity will be able to enjoy properly, as director Renato Polselli ('Delirium') intended. The blu-ray remastering is decent, but didn't blow me away, as I already owned the earlier Redemption release. But it improves the contrast dramatically, which is a sore spot for many 70's Eurohorror flicks, so I was grateful for that.

This one starts with a woman being burned alive at the stake for being a witch to the bass line and percussion of Santana's 'Soul Sacrifice' while some psychedelic credits roll over Mario Bava-esque colors shining on the faces of the attendant villagers, so we know what kind of a schlocky treat we're in store for from the get-go. Other reviewers seem to take these films way too seriously, as they were never intended to be. The key ingredients were a Eurogothic horror homage to the Universal classics, sex and gratuitous violence that wasn't permissable before 1968 when the codes were revised (usually heaped upon women back in those days for not staying at home + rearing kids while keeping working dads liquored up after a tough day at the office), pervasive nudity, drug use prevalent at that time, and more nudity. 'Gotta love it for what it was, not is - know what I mean?

3.0 out of 5 stars Incoherent Entertainment April 27 2013
By William Amazzini - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
Redemption USA continues to release its back catalog of Italian Horror with Director Renato Polselli's unbelievably incoherent 'BLACK MAGIC RITES' aka 'THE REINCARNATION OF ISABEL' aka 'RITI,MAGIE NERE E SEGRETE ORGE DEL TRECENTO'- 1973 in 1080P Blu-Ray. Released on both VHS and DVD over a decade ago under its alternate title, 'THE REINCARNATION OF ISABEL', the transfer is virtually identical with a few cleaned up speckles and sharper image. The film has the notoriety of being totally incomprehensible by Euro Trash enthusiasts and they would be right. From my stand point, it seems that a modern day vampire (Count Dracula, perhaps?) is planning an arranged marriage between his daughter and a villager. Haunted by the death of his beloved Isabel who was burned at the stake for being both a witch and vampire, he uses a satanic sect made up of the wedding party to resurrect poor Isabel's ravaged body sacrificing mostly the female guests in, you guessed it, blood sacrifices. It sounds better written down because the viewer may not see it that way at all. The cast includes Mickey Hargitay who made many Euro genre titles along with his then wife Jayne Mansfield and Polselli regular Rita Calderoni who was great in Director Luigi Batzella's delirious guilty pleasure 'NUDE FOR SATAN' aka 'NUDA PER SATANA'-1974. Director Polselli used most of the same cast in his previous Horror excursion 'DELIRIUM' aka 'DELIRIO CALDO' -1972. Polselli, who's most famous title is the second film of an early sixties gothic vampire trilogy 'L'AMANTE DEL VAMPIRO' aka 'THE VAMPIRE AND THE BALLERINA'- 1960 (which has yet to see a Digital release) gives the film an Ed Wood like feel of surrealistic numbness reminding one of Wood's film 'NIGHT OF THE GHOULS'-1960. It almost makes you want to turn off the English subtitles and try to watch the film on your own making up your own storyline with the images unfolding. The music is by Progressive Rock great Gianfranco Reverberi who produced the Italian band 'LE ORME's first five albums and also made a few solo albums finally creating and playing in the excellent late Eighties classical rock band 'RONDO VENEZIANO' and moves the film along at a fine clip. Recommended to Euro Trash fans, it may not be worth the upgrade if you already have the Image/Redemption DVD. Trailers to other Italian horrors are the Blu-Ray's only extras.

This is like Devil's Plaything its the story of an old vampire/witch being kept alive with the blood of young women. It's OK sort for a B Horror Movie. This not recommended for young children but young adult horror fans should find it enjoyable. there is sex, nudity, blood and some gore in it.
