Product Details

DEVILS OF DARKNESS (1965) is an enjoyable British gem from the mid-60's, starring William Sylvester and Carole Gray in leading roles. Paul Baxter (William Sylvester), a vacationing American tourist stumbles across a small village where devil worshippers congregate on a regular basis. After his girlfriend is abducted, he steals the powerful talisman belonging to Count Sinistre (Hubert Noel) and his "chosen bride" Tania (Carole Gray). Sinistre will stop at nothing to re-claim the talisman, even luring Baxter with swinging red-headed model Karen (Tracy Reed). Beautifully shot on EastmanColor filmstock, DEVILS OF DARKNESS looks really spiffy on DVD. Fans of Carole Gray will be especially interested in this title. Best-remembered for playing Cliff Richard's spunky girlfriend in "The Young Ones"; Gray has a very substantial role in DEVILS OF DARKNESS, playing the ill-fated gypsy maiden who becomes Sinistre's immortal bride. WITCHCRAFT, filmed the previous year, makes for a perfect companion piece. Horror movie legend Lon Chaney Jr. stars as Morgan Whitlock, at the center of an age-old feud between two dynasties. When the graveyard of the Whitlock clan is disturbed during an excavation, witch-matriarch Vanessa Whitlock (played by Yvette Rees in a truly-unsettling performance) returns from the dead to seek her revenge on the Lanier family. The cast also features Diane Clare and Jack Hedley. Starkly-filmed in black and white, WITCHCRAFT makes for an ideal companion movie for DEVILS OF DARKNESS. Each movie has it's own disc, with bonus animated picture gallery (DEVILS OF DARKNESS also has a brief trailer in b&w).
