Mausoleum (1983)

Susan Nomed (Playboy Bunny Bobbie Bresee, Ghoulies) was only ten-years-old when her mother died. During the funeral, she ran from her family to the mausoleum, where the fog rolls in and a demon calls out to her.

Now, twenty years later, she’s the heiress to her family’s fortune. She’s also married to Oliver Farrell (Marjoe Gortner, Starcrash), who is never home, but everything seems fine. However, Susan is starting to go stir crazy, flirting with the gardener, who exudes pure filth. That’s when we learn about the second part of Susan’s inheritance: an ancient curse.

Soon, Susan is turning into a green-eyed demon and having sex with plenty of men, then murdering them in all manner of interesting ways. Want an example? How about her breasts eat a man’s chest and leave him a bloody mess in the bathtub?

LaWanda Page of TV’s Sanford and Son shows up as Elsie the maid and you’ll be shocked to see how racist her role is. Actually, you won’t. We just watched the remake of Thirteen Ghosts (with the early 2000s title that seemed trite even back then, Thir13en Ghosts) and the black maid in that film acts just as stereotypically in that film.

Also, if you’re wondering how good the script is, Susan’s last name is demon backward.

This movie reminds me of late-period Fulci, as its look is very Italian. It’s filled with gore, nudity and a nonsensical plot, but there are times in your life when that’s what you’re looking for.

You can find this one on Amazon Prime and it’s free to watch with your membership!
