Critic Reviews for The Devil Commands

All Critics (3)

Karloff is allowed to act and shines in a frightingly sensitive and moving performance.

February 25, 2007 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Played for maximum spookiness (maybe a little too much so in some cases), it's one of the most memorable of all 1940s horrors.
