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. Photobucket

Thrilling film. The effects are pretty rubbish by today's standards, but the overall atmosphere of the film really makes up for it. Charles Grey gives an unnerving performance, and Christopher Lee as a hero is far more fitting that one would expect given his usual roles. *Spoilers....* There is some overlap in the interpretation of the evil - Mocata says he is a magician (not the rabbit out of the hat kind), and true magic is neither black nor white - which is as far as I'm aware true, but the fact that he's what would properly be called a Satanist means that viewers would probably end up tarring magic practitioners with the same brush. But that can be put down to either the time period it was written in or Mocata trying to mislead people into thinking he's more innocent than he is (especially as the Lee character uses Christian-esque occult magic to defeat the evil). Either way it doesn't really affect enjoyment of the film too much.
