Idiotic Exorcist spoof
3 June 2015 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

THE TROUBLE WITH MARY JANE is an out-and-out comedic episode of TALES FMO THE DARKSIDE. In essence it's a ridiculous spoof of THE EXORCIST in which the entire plot and content of that horror classic is ridiculed for lowbrow laughs and even worse attempts at humour. Everything about the story is over the top, from the moronic characters to the shouty performances, so this is a story that really tests the viewer's patience.

I previously thought that the EXORCIST spoof movie REPOSSESSED starring Linda Blair and Leslie Nielsen was a dog, but that looks like a masterpiece in comparison to this schlock. What a complete waste of time this is! I'd rather watch the Turkish EXORCIST rip-off SEYTAN again.
