Audience Reviews for The Devil's Nightmare

Seven stranded tourists, each representing a deadly sin, spend a night at a castle where they are killed or corrupted by a succubus. The seven deadly sins angle is intriguing, but the movie itself is slow and dull; after a perverse introduction, it takes an hour of additional setup before anything starts to happen. It's a "serious" horror movie with some interesting imagery and atmosphere and a creepy Devil, but not enough virtues to overcome the ponderous script.

A decent Italian gothic horror that is somewhat underrated. The music was brilliant and extremely errie. I really enjoy the different methods of murder invovling seven deadly sins. The film has a beautiful set and extremely atmospheric. The characters were colourful, Erika Blanc looked super hot in the film. The pace of the film was a bit slow, lots of unecessary little scares were used through out, but it doesn't stop the film from being entertaining.
