Lisa and the Devil (Italian: Lisa e il diavolo) is a 1973 Italian horror film directed by Mario Bava. The film was released in Spain as El diablo se lleva a los muertos (The Devil Carries the Dead). It had an ill-fated release in the US, where a heavily edited version completed with new scenes came out as The House of Exorcism with scenes directed by another filmmaker. It stars Elke Sommer, Telly Savalas, and Alida Valli. The story involves a young American tourist, who stays the night at the home of a family of Spanish aristocrats whose house is plagued by supernatural evil and dark secrets involving necrophilia. The US version includes new material that recasts the film as The Exorcist clone, with the main character possessed and recounting to the priest who's seeking to save her the story of how she became possessed.
