English Lisa and the Devil certainly doesn't belong to the very best of what Bava has directed, but it's still a film that deserves attention, partly because of how peculiar it is. Telly Savalas, with his lollipop, is quite demonic, and his character works well. Elke Sommer seemed a bit stiff to me, but it's mainly the camera, music, and set design that create the atmosphere of this peculiar film. ()
