The Devil's Rock and True Evil: A Movie Review

27 July 2011 4:00 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Director: Paul Campion.

Writers: Paul Campion, Paul Finch, and Brett Ihaka.

The Devil's Rock is a film from special effects guru Paul Campion, which takes place during World War II. It is the night before D-Day (June 5, 1944) and two New Zealanders have a special mission. They must take out one of the German guns on an isolated island. However, the screams of a woman from a nearby bunker draw them down, down into the fiery depths of hell. Just like Dante in the Divine Comedy, these two Kiwis will face unimaginable horrors, in a demon's lair. Then issues of the occult pop up and Campion goes for a tried and true association of Germany with the supernatural, much like earlier films e.g. The Keep (1983), The Bunker (2001), and Outpost (2008).

The red hues and blood splattered walls signal that this is not wholly an earthly plane, as Captain Grogan (Craig Hall) and Pvt. »

The Devil’S Rock: DVD review

18 July 2011 10:41 AM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Director: Paul Campion. Review: Adam Wing. Paul Campion is best known for his visual effects work on The Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Chronicles of Narnia. The Devil’s Rock is his feature length debut, but it’s probably worth baring in mind that the two shorts he made in preparation for this were called Eel Girl and Night of the Hell Hamsters, which make The Devil’s Rock sound like a dull proposition by comparison. It’s the eve of D-Day and allied commandos are carrying out sabotage raids on the German occupied Channel Islands to draw attention away from Normandy. On Forau Island, two New Zealand comrades, Captain Ben Grogan (Craig Hall) and Sergeant Joe Tane (Karlos Drinkwater) have been sent to destroy gun replacements, but after negotiating a tricky route to their target, a woman’s screams lure them into an isolated fortress.

This week's new films

8 July 2011 4:07 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The Tree Of Life (12A)

(Terrence Malick, 2011, Us) Brad Pitt, Jessica Chastain, Hunter McCracken, Laramie Eppler, Sean Penn, Tye Sheridan. 139 mins

Successor to Kubrick's 2001 or extended perfume ad? Either way, Malick's macro/microcosmic take on life, the universe and family life makes most films look unadventurous. Beyond the head-trip "creation of the universe" sequences, it's largely Sean Penn's impressionistic reminiscence of his conflicted childhood, rendered in gorgeous imagery, with introspective voiceovers and a dreamy intensity.

The Princess Of Montpensier (15)

(Bertrand Tavernier, 2010, Fra) Mélanie Thierry, Gaspard Ulliel, Lambert Wilson. 140 mins

There's costumes and courtliness, but this 16th-century saga remains unstuffy. Sought-after Thierry's quest for self-determination is the focus, and the treatment is modern and immediate.

Trust (15)

(David Schwimmer, 2010, Us) Liana Liberato, Clive Owen, Catherine Keener. 106 mins

Those who saw Catfish will know where this teen's online relationship with an apparently nice boy is headed. But what follows is an exercise in parent-worrying technophobia. »

The Devil's Rock – review

7 July 2011 4:06 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

So which is more evil – a Nazi or a demon? This claustrophobic New Zealand fantasy skirts the issue with a lack of chills

Here's an attempt from New Zealander Paul Campion – also responsible for the story – to settle the type of question posed by bumptious schoolboys: which would be more evil? A Nazi or a demon? Two Kiwi commandos are sent on a sabotage mission to the Channel Islands on the eve of D-Day. After setting explosives on their target, they ignore the first rule of horror and investigate the screams coming from inside a German blockhouse, where they discover eviscerated corpses, black magic manuals and a sole living Nazi, an SS colonel played by Matthew Sunderland with an accent that suggests Himmler was recruiting in the Antipodes. He's been occupying his time on the island summoning a demon to use as a weapon – "She would make Jack the Ripper look like a kindergarten tale, »

Movie Reviews - The Devil's Rock (2011)

7 July 2011 10:42 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Devil's Rock, 2011.

Directed by Paul Campion.

Starring Craig Hall, Matthew Sunderland, Gina Varela, Karlos Drinkwater and Luke Hawker.

Synopsis:

On the eve of D Day, two Kiwi commandos discover an occult plot by the Nazis to unleash demonic forces to win the war.

On paper The Devil’s Rock has a refreshing and promising setting. I had high hopes of a different and thrilling horror. It is set in the Channel Islands, which is unusual in itself. Its story plays out on the eve of the D-Day landings, giving the film a period background and all the possibilities of Nazis, gloomy bunkers and heroic Commandos. Throw in generous portions of gore and the temptations of mysterious occult witchcraft, and there are enough ingredients in this film to satisfy your average viewer as well as fans of fright fests.

Unfortunately having the beginnings of a good beginning is not enough. »
