German Title: SUKKUBUS:
EN TEUFEL IM LEIB [Sukkubus: Devil in the Body]
starring: Pamela Prati · Peter Simonischek · Giovanni Fruh · Andy Voss
for this film is an old Swiss legend that tells of three herdsmen who
allow their animalistic lust to unleash the powers of evil and are punished
gruesomely for their outrage. Set in the late 19th century, the film specifically
deals with three men sharing a tiny, rustic cabin in the Swiss Alps where
they have the task of caring for their herd of cattle. During a delirious
night of drinking and mounting sexual tensions, they create a female doll
from rags, dirt and roots. After raping the creation, it comes to life
in the form of a beautiful, yet deadly, female demon bent on total destruction.
Georg Tressler helmed 75+ productions in Germany since 1947. SUKKUBUS
was his last theatrical film before a steady output of TV projects before
his death in January 2007 (at age 89). Interestingly, this was also the
final motion picture for beautiful Pamela Prati before she too turned
to Euro television (where she remains active today). Ms Prati is probably
best known for the erotic thriller REFLECTIONS
