The B-side of the Netflix DVD of Jack the Ripper Goes West (1974) seemed a lot less enticing after the limited charms of Side A. But then, who knows who puts these things together in the first place?

Directed by Gerard Damiano of Deep Throat (1972) and The Devil in Miss Jones (1973) fame, it’s a non-porn flick made before Damiano’s more famous flicks, but released later. Rumored to have been a porn film as well before being edited down, Legacy of Satan seems to have become most well-known for its far-out soundtrack.

I found it strangely intriguing, though I’m having a hard time articulating why. Maybe it was all the hallucinations.

It’s also notable for featuring actress Christa Helm, whose 1977 murder is another unsolved Hollywood mystery.

This is definitely one I have to see again.
