      Sabrina F Gah...I wanted to like this movie so much. I have a soft spot for Hammer horror films, religious horror, and occult horror, so this movie should have been a slam dunk. I was never bored watching the movie. I was just underwhelmed. I have heard several people in my life call it a shocking movie, and even by 70's standards, it is pretty tame. Honestly the most shocking thing about it is naked Natassja Kinski, who was only 14 or 15 when she made this picture. There are just too many characters, and I never really felt the stakes. I think if the film felt more contained, and if it had given Kinski more to do, it would have been a lot more effective. That said, I really enjoyed Richard Widmark in this. He plays a popular writer who studies occult phenomenon, and he is trying to figure out what makes Kinski's character special. I have a feeling that the novel that this film is based on goes more in depth with the characters and their motivations, so that certain events have far more impact. This movie was just moving too fast and a bit all over the place. We did not spend enough time with anyone, save Widmark's character, to care about anyone. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/15/24 Full Review Deke P 1976 style devil flick. Stars! RICHARD WIDMARK! CHRISTOPHER LEE!! and I didn't recognize, but NASTASSIA KINSKI ( as the young nun), nor older HONOR BLACKMAN!; also Denholm Elliot. Interesting plot. I liked it. Giving it 3 1/2 RT stars. But not liked by todays standards, & most RT ratings low. It was disconcerting to see WIDMARK in this, but I think he wanted to be with CHRIS LEE, etc., and I guess they were trying to replicate the genre of ROSEMARY'S BABY. And Mz HONOR BLACKMAN... she was born in 1925!, which would have made her 41 in 1964 when she was the classic BOND GIRL in GOLDFINGER. She's 98 and still alive today. I never even heard of it before, til on TV & Saw DEVIL DAUGHTER 2/1/2023. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Liam D For the last classic horror movie hammer made it's a bit bittersweet but it's a religious thriller that chasing trends of other better movies Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 12/17/22 Full Review Matthew D Stands as being the last theatrical Hammer movie for several decades. Originally a flop that was panned by critics, it has sense aquired something of a following. I thought it was OK. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 08/19/21 Full Review Audience Member Crackerjack casting sets up the eventual action with the endlessly creepy Christopher Lee and innocence of a teenage Kinski; Music and situations mirror thriller horror films of the time Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member A creepy mess of a film. And, sometimes creepy in a "bad" way. Not really worth watching unless you want to see the death throws of Hammer in the 70s (before its recent rebirth) Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times It's the most over-directed exploitation movie I've seen in a long time -- it attempts to squeeze in so many subplots and parallel bits of action that finally we're left scratching our heads and wondering who the characters are. Rated: 1/4 Oct 23, 2004 Full Review Eddie Harrison film-authority.com ...the wrong selection of weapon, club or instrument by the Hammer executives, but..a fun ride for horror specialists... Rated: 3/5 Jan 24, 2022 Full Review Tim Brayton Alternate Ending Even if the film before the ending had been an unmatched triumph, it would still have to contend with how deeply crass, tacky, and anti-climactic the last couple of reels are. Rated: 2.5/5 Nov 19, 2018 Full Review John Higgins Starburst To the Devil a Daughter is a fitting tribute to a legendary horror production slate and one that fans new and old should seek out. Rated: 8/10 Jan 12, 2018 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews The black magic thriller is undoubtedly cheesy but, no matter, I always get a kick out of Christopher Lee and Richard Widmark, even if the latter is miscast. Rated: B- Dec 23, 2014 Full Review Jennie Kermode Eye for Film Rated: 3.5/5 Jan 1, 2010 Full Review Read all reviews
