Audience Reviews for The Devil's Hand (Where the Devil Hides)
For a black and white movie this is a pretty good flick. Wouldn't good as far as to call it a B-Movie. The copy I had was excellent quality and was part of the Drive-In Cult Classics Vol 2, which is a set of 8 movies. This one even had a Drive-In Intermission Film that I remember from back in the day. Robert Alda is our main man, working undercover to expose a cult. We have two beautiful ladies in this one, and while working undercover Robert seems to be falling for the Devil witch. Have to say I enjoyed it. For time frame it was filmed in, must have drew a crowd. Its worth the buy. 4 StarsMore
The most positive thing that I can possibly say about The Devil's Hand is that Robert Alda has a large role in it, even if he isn't all that effective. The other noteworthy cast member is Neil Hamilton, who you might recognize as Commissioner Gordon from the Batman TV series. Other than him and Robert Alda, there's no reason to watch this film.I was bored to tears with it and I couldn't really find much good to say about it. I tend to dislike voodoo movies from this era because they're more about the intent rather than the effect. For example, early in the film Ariadne Welter's character's voodoo doll is pierced in the heart, and she has a heart attack. If this film had been made today, she would probably have died. The effect was less-interesting than the intent, and I find that boring in this movie. Nothing really happens and there's no real threat, only in words, making the characters completely dumb. So the plot goes nowhere, the characters are unrelatable and do unbelievable things, everybody talks and talks about nothing, AND the movie looks like it was shot for TV with sets that look like they're about to fall over at any minute. Don't even get me started on the rubber knife scenes. Just skip this, unless you have a morbid movie curiousity like I do.More
