The Devil Rides Out

The Devil Rides Out

Terence Fisher (1968)

15 Certificate


Our Score
As a satanic spectacular, this is the business, even if, for once in a Hammer horror, Christopher Lee is on the side of virtue. Director Terence Fisher searches for credibility in Dennis Wheatley's trashy tale of the Duc de Richleau (Lee) trying to save Patrick Mower's soul from the clutches of Charles Gray, a rotted limb of Satan. Whatever cynical giggles this might cause are soon flattened by the deadpan approach, some seriously orgiastic production numbers and a scary script from the ever-reliable Richard Matheson that's guaranteed to get your goose bumps rising.


A concerned French nobleman begins to question a close friend's behaviour, only to discover his beleaguered pal has fallen foul of a coven of Satanists. Hammer horror based on a novel by Dennis Wheatley, with Christopher Lee, Charles Grey, Patrick Mower, Leon Greene and Paul Eddington.
