The Devil Rides Out, 1968.

Directed by Terence Fisher.

Starring Christopher Lee, Leon Greene, Charles Gray, Patrick Mower and Nike Arrighi.

Synopsis:

After rescuing his deceased friend's son from a bloody Satanic ritual, the debonair Duc de Richleau  is pursued by a cult who will stop at nothing to destroy the Duc and his friends, even summoning the Angel of Death itself.

It doesn’t get much more Hammer than this. Magic, mystics and servants of Satan abound in this most adventurous of the studio’s efforts, all led pointy-beard-first by horror icon Christopher ‘Lock Up Your Daughters’ Lee, in a rare heroic role, no less.

Adapted from Dennis Wheatley’s original novel by Richard Matheson (the man who wrote I Am Legend, no less), and directed by the man behind genre classics The Horror of Dracula and The Curse of Frankenstein, the horror credentials of The Devil Rides Out are unquestionable. »
