The Devil Within Her Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

This weird British hybrid of [[Feature~V16331~The Exorcist~theexorcist]], [[Feature~V42138~Rosemary's Baby~rosemarysbaby]] and [[Feature~V25535~It's Alive!~itsalive]] stars [[Performer~P14235~Joan Collins~joancollins]] as a stripper who spurns the advances of a lecherous dwarf and is subsequently cursed by a monstrous baby -- which emits horrifying demonic howls and attacks everyone within reach, including his parents, his nanny and the family doctor ([[Performer~P57070~Donald Pleasence~donaldpleasence]]). A final exorcism is attempted by a nun ([[Performer~P2699~Eileen Atkins~eileenatkins]]), for what it's worth. No clear explanation is given for the link between the spurned dwarf and the demonic influence placed upon the homicidal tyke (even the countless Italian [[Feature~V16331~Exorcist~theexorcist]] knock-offs usually maintained some sort of twisted logic), and the considerable potential for horror in the killer-baby concept is not explored thoroughly enough to keep viewers involved. Also released as I Don't Want To Be Born. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi
