Release date: 1991
Holy Virgin vs Evil Dead is one of those films that makes it onto vampire filmographies but, for a moment, I wondered whether this should be a ‘Vamp or Not?’ rather than a review. Ultimately I thought that it does enough to warrant the vampire label and is probably vampire enough to dispense with questioning the film and thus I should get on with reviewing it.
It is a strange one, clearly aping – at least in title – the cult Sam Raimi film from ten years before. In reality there is only some POV moving camera work and some wind machines that truly ape the classic film. It is, however, a film in which we play the game "spot the virgin". In fact this is a bit of an exploitation flick. There were two releases, a domestic one and an international one and the latter covered up nudity whereas the former revelled in it. I used the domestic version for review.
