"Leave it to Curtis Harrington to sneak a hag and some old Hollywood worship into his crazed drive-in-set Miami mafia EXORCIST movie."
— Liz, LETTERBOXD
Fresh from portraying the bible-thumping mother of CARRIE, the mighty Piper Laurie leapt into the title role of this swamp-horror EXORCIST-riff from legendary queer filmmaker Curtis Harrington (NIGHT TIDE). Sixteen years after her mob boss husband is murdered, Ruby (Laurie) runs a drive-in theater deep in the swamps. But all is not well, when a night out at the movies turns into a series of supernatural homicides! RUBY is a classy-yet-trashy whirlpool of spectral retaliation and demonic obsession from one of the most underappreciated filmmakers in genre history. And like Carrie, Laurie’s on-screen daughter also has mysterious telekinetic powers. Bonus!
