Movie Info

This seedy but effective little supernatural thriller involves a group of seven travelers -- each of whom represents one of the Seven Deadly Sins -- who take shelter in a mysterious baron's haunted castle, where they are visited in turn by a seductive, lingerie-clad succubus (Erika Blanc), who metes out suitable punishment in accordance with their evil deeds. It is revealed that their enigmatic host is a former Nazi general whose family's Satanic legacy includes the birth of a malevolent she-demon into each generation. Only the token priest of the group manages to stand up to the evil forces. A Belgian/Italian co-production; also released as The Succubus, The Devil's Longest Night, Castle of Death and The Devil Walks at Midnight.

You've never heard of it. You'll never see it. To you this movie doesn't even exist. Lucky you.

It's a nifty little idea, the pacing is languid but not dragging, and I'm sure it could be a good little minor classic if seen under the proper circumstances.

Audience Reviews for The Devil's Nightmare

At the half-way point (if you haven't already turned it off), you'll be wondering why nothing has happened yet.

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.

Decent film but some of the characters were bad and the lesbian sex was unneeded to the story. The main enemy appears randomly in the film but there are some nice death scenes but some stupid parts. The music is nice though and the ending wasn't so bad.
