Cult Actress Katell Laennec Is “The Malicious Whore!” Week Two’s “2020 Sex Kitten Countdown”! Her Only Role Was “Malabimba!”

Meet Katell Laennec!

If you don’t know Katell, that’s understandable – she only made a single film – but it was a grindhouse classic!

This is week two of my “2020 Sex Kitten Countdown”, a look at great cult movie Queens from the past…and I’ve got one who starred in one of the most provocative and controversial sexploitation films of them all!

Katell Laennec was born in Paris in 1960, and her film credits list a single title – and what a title it was!

Laennec was “Malibimba – The Malicious Whore!”

This cult gem was shot in just twelve days in 1979, and has become a Eurosleaze masterpiece!

The film is also known as “The Malicious Whore”, but no matter what you call it, the film delivers!

Here’s the plot – even the synopsis is a wild ride:

“After the death of Andrea’s wife, her nearly bankrupt family decides to hold a seance in their decrepit castle and contact her spirit. Unfortunately, they contact instead the malicious and possibly demonic spirit of their evil, hedonistic and decadent late cousin Lucrezia who ends up possessing Andrea’s virginal teenage daughter Bimba! Bimba suddenly becomes overtly sexual and starts acting out in a completely unhinged, aggressive and sexually provocative manner in front of her family and their guests, all while brutally insulting them!”

See what I mean? Here’s the closest thing I could find to a trailer:

Severin Films released the film several years ago in a version that includes the hardcore insert shots that the Director disavows…

While the picture is pure depravity, it also holds a spot in Italian film history.

One Italian Critic said that films such as “Malabimba – The Malicious Whore” were part of the wave of films at that time that were inspired by “The Exorcist” – with sexually active women in the films portrayed as being deadly and dangerous!

As I said, there are multiple version of the film, but Severin includes an unrated version as well…

Jason Buchanan of “AllMovie” described the film as:

“a Euro-sleaze classic of the highest caliber”

High praise indeed!

While Laennec was never seen in a film again, several of her co-stars were in some classic Italian sexploitation films, and will be profiled in the future.

The film’s Director Andrea Bianchi made many great eurosleaze classics as well, like 1974’s “Cry Of A Prostitute”, and “Strip Nude For Your Killer” in 1975.

Katell Laennec isn’t the only “one and done” Actress I have featured here:

  1. Unknown to me, John, but a worthy entry into the ‘sleaze’ category. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.
