Synopsis:
Set in New England in 1826, Faith (Terri Hall) loves the gardener Joseph (Dean Tait) but her father (Zebedy Colt) forbids it.  Faith's sister Hope (Jody Maxwell) lusts after Joseph and sells her soul to the devil (Rod Dumont) to get Joseph for herself.

Audio/Video:
The Devil Inside Her is presented with an English 2.0 Mono audio track which is very decent considering the age of the film and the fact that I think the film has spent most of it's life out of print and deteriorating.  There is some obvious background hiss in the audio and it is obvious that it was a low budget production from the sound.  There are a few places that the audio cuts out for a second, which could have been a problem with the master used or could be problems from the original film.  Alpha Blue Archives hasn't included any foreign language tracks or subtitle options for the feature film.

The Devil Inside Her is presented in the full screen aspect ratio of approximately 1.33:1.  I don't know what the original aspect ratio for the film was when it was shown theatrically so I don't know if it has been modified to fit the screen.  The print used here isn't in the best shape and I have seen other classics in much better shape.  Then again, I suspect this film has spent much of it's life out of print, so the masters probably weren't in that good of a shape to start out.  The print has artifacts and glitches throughout.  Some of the edits are jumpy, I'm not sure if the film was originally made this way or if tiny portions had to be cut out do to their poor quality.  Also during portions of the devil's orgy scene, the red seems over saturated.  Again I'm not sure if this is how the film was originally made or if it is a problem with the master used.

Special Features:
Alpha Blue has actually included a few extras on the disc.  They have included the original theatrical trailer for the film which runs for four-and-a-half-minutes.  There is the Zebedy Colt Interview/Bio, which is an extensive text biography of Zebedy Colt.  There is an eight minute boy/girl/girl bonus Satanism scene from the 1973 film Devil's Due.  There are also previews for Sex Wish, Hard Gore and Satanic Sickies.

Disc Design/Navigation:
The disc opens with the Satanic Sickies trailer, which can be skipped over, and then goes to the main menu.  The disc is designed with simple non-animated menus without any music.  There are nine chapter stops available from the chapter menu for the feature film.  Each one is identified by a still frame from the scene the chapter goes to.  There are nine chapter stops within the feature film itself. 

General Review:
The Devil Inside Her is a twisted film that came out in the mid-seventies.  The core theme of the film is Satanism and it is an 1800s period piece.  The plot for the film is actually rather interesting and is the only redeeming value to the film.  The story to the film is the age old tale of someone wanting to sell their soul to get something that their heart desires.  As is common with this style film, both in the mainstream and adult film worlds, once the job is done usually the end results are not what were originally expected.  As with all films in this genre, there are new twists to the story presented here and there is enough of a story to the film to entertain the viewer.

The sex scenes in the film are a let down though.  First off, as is common with the adult films from the early 70s, the female cast members aren't the best too look at.  However, the biggest problem with the film sexually is the construct of the scenes.  They are very short and focus more on being twisted than being erotic.  Even in the devil's orgy scene, the shots are random, jumping around instead of going for a erotic festival for the eyes, it goes for shock value instead.

Viewers that are into coercion and scenes that focus on nasty acts with the eroticism removed may find the scenes more to their liking.  However, the average viewer will probably end up being very disappointed with the sex scenes presented here.  The sexual themes in the film are vaginal sex with blow jobs, S & M, male masturbation, female masturbation, pussy eating, coercion, anilingus, vaginal vegetable insertion, DPP, anal fingering, hand jobs, pussy fingering, lesbianism, golden showers and orgies.  For viewers that care about condom use, there are no condoms used in the film.

The technical quality of the film varies quite a bit. Many of the edits are jumpy, which appears to be the way the film was made.  This style is very distracting when the shot changes.  For the most part, the film looks right for the time.  The locations used in the film are great.  They give the feel of old New England and add to the mood of the film.  However, some poor choices were the studded collar and studded wrist bands that the Devil wears.  They give the film a modern feel and not an 1800's feel.  Also the strap-on and leather face mask with zipper give the film too modern a feel.  With the work that went into the mood of the film, it's too bad these details were overlooked.

Scene Synopsis:
Scene 1: Rod Dumont
The first scene features Rod Dumont and the scene just shows him masturbating in the woods.  There is no cum shot to end the scene.

Scene 2: Terri Hall, Dean Tait
The second scene brings us Terri Hall and Dean Tait and is a coercion scene.  Dean has vaginal sex with Terri and then cums on Terri's ass to end the scene.

Scene 3: Jody Maxwell, Chad Lambert
The third scene gives us Jody Maxwell and Chad Lambert.  Jody gives Chad a blow job and then Chad masturbates until he cums in a cup.

Scene 4: Jody Maxwell, Rod Dumont
The fourth scene features Jody Maxwell and Rod Dumont.  Jody starts the scene out by giving Rod a blow job.  Then Rod has vaginal sex with Jody.  Rod cums on her ass then he eats her pussy for a little before the scene ends.

Scene 5: Terri Hall, Dean Tait
The fifth scene brings us Terri Hall and Dean Tait and is interlaced with the sixth scene.  Dean starts out by eating Terri's pussy.  Then Terri eats Dean's ass briefly before giving him a short blow job.  Then they go into the vaginal sex.  Terri gives Dean a blow job until he cums inside her mouth.

Scene 6: Jody Maxwell
The sixth scene gives us Jody Maxwell and is interlaced with the fifth scene.  Jody starts out the scene by masturbating then she starts masturbating with fruits and vegetables until the end of the scene.

Scene 7: Jody Maxwell, Zebedy Colt, Rod Dumont
The seventh scene features Jody Maxwell, Zebedy Colt and Rod Dumont.  Zebedy starts out the scene by having vaginal sex with Jody.  Then Zebedy eats out Jody before he cums in her mouth.  Then he returns to eating out Jody.  Zebedy becomes Rod who continues to eat Jody briefly before the scene ends.

Scene 8: Nancy Dare, Rod Dumont
The eighth scene brings us Nancy Dare and Rod Dumont.  Rod starts the scene out by fingering Nancy then he has vaginal sex with her briefly.  Rod cums on her stomach to end the scene.

Scene 9: Nancy Dare, Terri Hall
The ninth scene gives us Nancy Dare and Terri Hall and Nancy starts the scene out by eating Terri.  Then Nancy fingers Terri and comes close to fisting her.  Then Nancy fucks Terri with a strap-on.

Scene 10: Annie Sprinkle, Jody Maxwell, Terri Hall, Rod Dumont, various men, various women
The tenth and final scene in the film is an orgy scene and it features a large quantity of women and men, most of which I couldn't identify.  The devil's orgy scene shows various quick shots of blow jobs and pussy eating.  Then three men urinate on Annie as well as spank, finger and fuck her.  Then there are more longer shots of blow jobs, pussy eating, fucking, cum shots, female masturbation, DPP and anal fingering.

Parting Thoughts:
The Devil Inside Her is a dark and gritty film which probably won't appeal to most viewers.  The female cast, as is common for the time, isn't the best to look at.  The story is interesting, but the sex is unerotic.  If you are into the classics and like a satanic theme, rough sex and non-consensual sex, you might want to rent the title.  Otherwise, I'd recommend passing on this one.
