The Devil's Daughter (Italian title: La Setta), also known as The Sect and Demons 4, is a 1991 Italian horror film co-written and produced by Dario Argento and directed by Michele Soavi. The film stars Kelly Curtis and Herbert Lom.[1]


Following a 1970s-set prologue, the film takes place in present-day Frankfurt, Germany. Miriam Kreisl (Kelly Curtis) is a young schoolteacher who narrowly misses running down with her car an old man carrying a box. Reluctantly, she takes in Moebius Kelly (Herbert Lom), the mysterious old man. What she doesn't know is that their meeting is no accident. Moebius is the elder of a Satanic sect and she has been chosen to give birth to the son of Satan.



The film was shown under the title The Sect at the 1991 Toronto Festival of Festivals as part of their Midnight Madness screening.[2]
