    Mind, Body & Soul

    MIND, BODY, & SOUL is a solid mid-fi offering from director Rick Sloane (HOBGOBLINS, BLOOD THEATRE). The script is straightforward and predictable and at times there’s just too much talking, and there’s not too much gratuitous gore or over-the-top sleaze, which is odd coming from a 90s horror film about a satanic cult.

Shot sometime in the early 1980s by director video shoppe owner/horror zine publisher Norbert Georges Moutier aka Norbert Moutier aka N.G. Mount, I’ve watched OGROFF four times in three years. Each successive viewing brings me closer to the plotless, gore-drenched, gutter-poetic truth. Yet, that truth constantly eludes me. This film shocks me. It…
