Lisa and the Devil [1974]

Every corner of the soul is lost to
the icy clutch of the supernatural... 

Lisa and the Devil (Italian: Lisa e il diavolo) is a 1974 Italian horror film directed by Mario Bava. The film is notable for its controversial release in the US, where it was heavily recut/refilmed and released as "The House of Exorcism". The film was released in Spain as El diablo se lleva a los muertos (The Devil Carries The Dead).  Stars: Elke Sommer and Telly Savalas.

The story involves a young American tourist, who stays the night at the home of a family of Spanish aristocrats whose house is plagued by supernatural evil and dark secrets involving necrophilia. The US version includes new material that recasts the film as an "Exorcist" clone, with the main character possessed and recounting to the priest who's seeking to save her the story of how she became possessed.
