While there may be no real frights to be had here, the hammy performances and ludicrous effects are reason enough to sit through this masterpiece of melted cinematic cheese.

Audience Reviews for The Devil's Rain


Amazing movie that wastes no time getting to the good parts. Within the first five minutes William Shatner eats the whole scene and that includes a melting man, a crazy old coot, and a worried mother with nasty dreams. There is a book. Corbis, the devil's disciple, wants it. The rest of the movie deals with that, sorta, I mean it is not really clear what the rules are or how to get out of the silly situation. Still, the Satanic Church is awesome and Borgnine in goat make up is worth all the other stuff.

An okay horror movie, it's one of those where a devil worshiping cult is trying to get revenge for the witch hunts. The biggest problem, I think, is that it takes place in the west, which doesn't make much sense. Plus, all the melting face guys get annoying after a while. A good cast, but maybe it would have been better with a different director and crew?
