Critic Reviews for The Devil Rides Out
Fisher's direction makes one of the Satanic orgies a production highspot, aided by some frenzied choreography by David Toguri and apt mood music.
Over the years, this film's reputation has grown enormously, and its cult status must be as high as any horror movie.
Satanic movies are a pretty silly lot, a handful of exceptions notwithstanding. The Devil Rides Out agrees wholeheartedly with that estimation... and then swiftly proves that "silly" and "scary" aren't necessarily mutually exclusive terms.
With Fisher, arguably the auteur of Hammer Studios, behind the camera, and one of its top stars in front of it, the film works on all levels and truly earns its reputation as a classic of British horror.
Audience Reviews for The Devil Rides Out
It's pace and length were perfect for the weak and boring characters, if the movie was any longer, it probably would have had a lower rating. I just need to sympathize with a character to be able to enjoy a movie. But nevertheless, it was entertaining enough to see a movie about a subject that tickles the imagination. I'm probably not giving it the credit it deserves, so if you get a chance to see it, please do.
The Devil Rides Out is a great film that has been overshadowed by Hammer's more famous films. With some special effects that might seem laughable today, the film's real treat comes in the form of the performances. Lead satanist Charles Gray's spellbinding glare is only matched by the intensity of Christopher Lee and his knowledge of the subject.
A great Horror Classic.
