Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Lisa and the Devil is simply too audacious to be dismissed out of hand. ... But the U.S. cut, The House of Exorcism, is mostly a tragedy."
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
"The Bava art on full display, voluptuous and oneiric"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"It might take a few viewings before the full beauty (not to mention the plot) makes itself clear, but Lisa and the Devil rewards those repeated viewings richly."
‑ Matt Bailey, Not Coming to a Theater Near You
"Contains some of Bava's most lush cinematography."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Lisa and the Devil is the real deal, a masterfully poetic journey into darkness and dislocation that is long overdue in finding the audience it so desperately deserves."
‑ Dustin Putman,
"Incredibly dreary horror opus."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Who loves ya, Beelzebub? Why, Kojak... er, Telly Savalas, of course! The lollypop licking Lucifer shadows lovely Lisa throughout this lesser-known, more unusual of Italian giallo master Mario Bava's oeuvres"
‑ Staci Layne Wilson,
"The film seems to b a deliberate attempt on Bava's part to craft an art-house movie in horror film drag."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, ESplatter
"Boring, nonsensical horror flick."
‑ Gerry Shamray, Your Movies (
