Based on the celebrated novel by Dennis Wheatley, The Devil Rides Out is one of Hammer’s most accomplished and thrilling mystery horrors, and Scream Factory is bringing the classic film to Blu-ray with a new 2K scan just in time for Halloween!
In the film, the debonair Duc de Richleau has been entrusted with the care of his deceased friend’s son, Simon Aron. The Duc discovers that the young man has been seduced into joining a satanic cult headed by the diabolic Mocata, who is intent on making Simon one of the Devil’s disciples. Having rescued Simon from a bloodied ritual, de Richleau is pursued by Mocata, who will stop at nothing to destroy the Duc and his friends, even summoning the Angel of Death himself.
Directed by Terence Fisher (Frankenstein Created Woman), this 1968 shocker stars Christopher Lee (Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones, The Lord of the Rings), Charles Gray (Diamonds Are Forever), Nike Arrighi (Day for Night), Leon Green (Flash Gordon), Patrick Mower ("Marco Polo"), Gwen Ffrangcon-Davies (The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes), Sarah Lawson (The Avengers) and Paul Eddington (Good Neighbors).
