  5. Lisa and the Devil

A traveler spends the night in a decrepit Spanish home that appears to be kept in the ghostly grip of an eccentric butler who resembles an antique fresco picture of the Devil.

Mario Bava directed the 1974 horror film Lisa and the Devil. The film, originally titled El diablo se lleva a los muertos (The Devil Takes the Dead) in Spain, stars Elke Sommer as a young traveler who gets lost in Toledo and spends the night at a home owned by a mysterious Spanish aristocracy.

Following the success of The Exorcist, producer Alfredo Leone and Lamberto Bava inserted scenes that gave the picture an exorcism theme and re-released it in the United States as The House of Exorcism (Italian: La casa dell’esorcismo).
