- (C) 1982, aka "The Strange Son of the Sheriff", Possession, Horror,
On Video, Mexican, in Spanish
In this Mexican amalgam of "The Exorcist", "The Other", and "Basket
Case", a western-era sheriff's wife dies giving birth to conjoined
twins. When the boys reach the age of ten or twelve, a well-meaning
doctor separates them, only to have the physically weaker of the
two die. The dead twin returns as a really pissed off ghost and
eventually kills the father, the doctor, and the gorgeous young
teacher/surrogate mother. Wanting to return to the physical world
to be with his twin again, the dead boy solves the "no body"
problem by entering the newly-emptied form of the teacher and
becoming "her". At the end, he/she promises his brother that
they'll be together "Para siempre, para siempre" ("Forever,
forever"). Surprisingly effective.
