Lisa and the Devil - US Blu-ray Is Out Now

Both Versions of Mario Bava's Film in HD

Lisa and the Devil, a horror film by Mario Bava, had a rough start. Even though Bava had complete freedom while shooting the film he wanted, the Italian audience didn't like the end product. The attempt to distribute it outside of Italy, especially in the US, failed. It wasn't wanted and seemed too special for a mass audience.

Producer Alfredo Leone had financial struggles and urged Bava to recut the film and do reshoots. Leone wanted to profit from The Exorcist's big fame by addressing the same subject matter. Bava wasn't too excited and did not fully participate in the reshooting process. The end result was The House of Exorcism. Big parts of the Lisa version now served as flashbacks and many aspects were missing completely. The new exorcist scenes and the fancy new title didn't cause much success, though. The House of Exorcism was a flop as well and without question the worse film.

On September 18th, 2012, Lorber Films released a Blu-ray in the US containing both films in a remastered version. Just like older releases, a lot of good bonus materials are on board (incl. 2 audio commentaries, e.g. one with the producer himself).

In the audio commentaries, a Spanish version of the film is mentioned. Here, a gore scene is longer than in versions of other countries. Apart from that, it is also shorter in different scenes, including sex scenes.

You can order the US Blu-ray here.
