Ignacio F. Iquino, Spain, 1982, Vinegar Syndrome, Horror

“Yes, I agree that ROSEMARY’S BABY would've been better in the style of a sleazy telenovela.”

An adulterer named Frederick is blinded by his wife, who is then confined to an asylum. Deciding to start a new life and family with his mistress, Helen, but finding that he is unable to successfully impregnate her, Frederick consults with a fertility doctor. But unknown to the happy couple, a member of a Satanic sect decides that Helen will be the perfect mother for the Antichrist! A diamond in the rough of early 1980s Euro-horror, then 72-year-old filmmaker Ignacio F. Iquino's SECTA SINIESTRA aka BLOODY SECT barely saw any kind of release outside of its native Spain, despite liberally “borrowing” plot elements from ROSEMARY’S BABY. Brimming over with every key element of Eurosleaze, including surprisingly brutal killings, Satanic possession, zoom-happy cinematography, absurd plot twists, and a deranged synthesizer score, SECTA SINIESTRA is long overdue to join the ranks of the craziest offerings from Bruno Mattei or Joe D'Amato.
