Diabólica malicia (original title)
1h 29min | Crime, Drama, Horror | 14 October 1972 (Italy)


In this stylish and atmospheric psychological thriller reminiscent of Henry James’s Turn of the Screw, a widowed English writer brings a young, glamorous new bride to his bleak, isolated home in rural Spain. She soon becomes obsessed with her 12-year old stepson, who she learns has just been expelled from school for mysterious offenses; while the boy enjoys, exploits, and feeds her increasing paranoia about him. That he is a brilliant and lonely child is obvious. But is he the victim of a neurotic woman’s overwrought imagination– in Shakespeare’s words, the innocent flower, or the serpent under it?

User review:

Mark Lester is the greatest child actor ever!
I first saw OLIVER! six years ago, and I knew that the angelic-looking young actor playing the title role had to be the greatest child actor ever, and I was absolutely right. I have never seen a more bright and talented young actor. Lester is truly amazing. Right after I saw the film, I started seeking out other Mark Lester titles. The first and best I came across is the 1971 chiller, NIGHT CHILD, in which Mark gives what may very well be the greatest performance ever given by a child actor. Lester plays Marcus, a disturbed young boy who may have murdered his mother, and he may have similar plans for his father’s new wife. I won’t say anything more about the plot, but I will say that Mark Lester’s performance is magnificent. He proves that he is the most skilled and versatile actor ever. It’s unfortunate that this film isn’t more well-known, but Lester’s strong performance makes it something really special. It isn’t likely that you”ll find the film in your local video store, but if you ever get the opportunity to see it, don’t miss out!

    Filmed in 1971 when Mark Lester was 13 and released in a cut version in Great Britain as “Night Hair Child” in 1972, and passed by the British Board of Film Censors with an ‘X’ certificate that barred anyone under the age of 18 from seeing it in a cinema, this is one of Mark’s films that I’ve never seen, so I can’t give an opinion on it. It was shown in 1972 at the cinema where I worked as a projectionist, but I was on a week’s holiday at the time and didn’t get to see it.

    With this film, Mark’s “Oliver!” and “Run Wild, Run Free” days were over and he was persuaded to get his kit off for this and his next two films, “Redneck” and “Love Under The Elms”. The film has been released on various DVDs by various DVD companies, but usually in cut versions. What the British title “Night Hair Child” actually meant is anyone’s guess.

    The scene around 52 minutes when Elise and Paul are arguing in the restaurant. Next, Elise walks into Marcus’ room and stares at him. Next scene is Elise in her bed with Marcus watching.
    Is it implying they had sex?
