Alternate Versions

The English-language video release was a TV print of the film and therefore had been edited for content. It's missing 95% of the scene where the devil-worshipers are partying after Danielle Ouimet's swearing in ceremony to the cult. There's also various bits trimmed out to present length to fit in the alloted Tv time slot. See more »

Dull Satanic horror mystery.
11 September 2010 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

"The Possession of Virginia" is a pretty rare Satanic horror mystery which involves two apparent suicides,a pact made with the Devil and a private investigation of a journalist named Paul.Somebody kills his cat via poison.There is also a psychedelic orgy of Satan worshippers that is admittedly sleazy.Unfortunately the action moves at snail's pace and some scenes are truly boring.The only English video release of this film under the title "The Possession of Virginia" has been heavily censored.However I have seen an uncut French version of "Satan's Sabbath".So if you are a fan of Satanic horror sub-genre you may give this one a chance.I was a bit disappointed,though.5 out of 10.
