When a documentarian delves into the dark world of satanic art for a new film, he unearths a disturbing painting that leads him into a world of post-Exorcist Italo-Horror where cursed medallions, possessed children and the overwhelming power of the dark lord converge to create a visually stunning and wildly eccentric exploitation classic from Massimo Dallamano. See a young girl descend into the hellish pit of demonic possession in 'The Night Child', a textbook example of 70s euro-horror from an Italian exploitation master.
