Mausoleum is an engaging minor film concerning demonic possession, presenting variations on The Exorcist format. Not the stab ‘n’ slab genre picture one might infer from its title, film should please aficiandos of old-fashioned B-horror films.

Bobbie Bresee toplines as Susan Farrell, a 30-year-old woman who has been possessed by a demon at age 10 after strolling into the family mausoleum, carrying on a centuries-old family curse affecting the first-born. Twenty years after, the demon has finally taken over, going on a killing spree that arouses the suspicions of her husband Oliver (Marjoe Gortner). Friend and psychiatist Dr Andrews (Norman Burton) is enlisted to help Susan and ultimately bests the demon.

Bresee is extremely seductive here in the femme fatale role, complete with stock victims such as the shady gardener, unwary delivery boy, etc.
