Now I'm going to stick my neck out and say that this is a BETTER film than "The Exorcist" (which was released around the same time). "The Exorcist" has a campy feel that makes it hard to take entirely seriously. "Joel Delaney" is much more cerebral and interesting, and includes a fascinating exploration of the religion of Santaría, amongst other things.

Twelve-year-old David Elliott is absolutely wonderful throughout. This film has only ever been released completely uncensored on an NTSC VHS tape, back in 1998.
