Documentary about Jayne Mansfield and her dabble with the occult. A combination of two interesting subjects, the squeaky Hollywood starlet and the late 60s obsession with devil worshippers it was an entertaining 90 minutes.

Did well on a micro budget and there's something about the outback that cooks up these crazy characters. What the hell was that bathtub scene about?? Q&a was livened up by someone proffering criticism of the films final shot. He didn't get a t shirt!
