Jan Stevens, the second greatest Egg Lady in motion picture history.
A winning combination of flamethrowers and disco, but I particularly like Donny and his dead Mommy's miserable old house. Usually always brightly lit and possessing that nightmarish quality (via Donny's shrill delusions) of being both full of the restless dead and empty of life at the same time. Donny in his fireproof room with a flamethrower may be iconic, but the presentation of the house left the greatest impression.
As a sequel to The Exorcist? - Yes, it's a dismal failure.
Viewed as a stand-alone, loopy, mystical/sci-fi/horror hybrid dragged along by a manic Richard Burton performance? - It's actually quite fun.
Somehow I missed out on(avoided...) seeing this until very recently, but finally got my opportunity to view it on the big screen as part of the BFI's John Boorman retrospective.
Seen in a Boorman context alongside the likes of 'Excalibur' and 'Zardoz', it made a lot more sense…
