In the countryside of England, the Duc de Richleau a.k.a Nicholas welcomes his old friend Rex Van Ryn that has flown to meet him and Simon Aron, who is the son of an old friend of them that had passed away but charged them the task of watching the youngster. Nicholas and Rex unexpectedly visit Simon that is receiving twelve mysterious friends. Sooner Nicholas, who is proficient in black magic, learns that the guests are member of a satanic cult and Simon and his friend Tanith Carlisle will be baptized by the powerful leader Mocata to serve the devil.

Quotes

Duc de Richleau: [watching as Rex and Tanith, now restored to life, walk toward the house] Come in my friends.
Marie Eaton: [rushes into the room with husband Richard carrying Peggy] She's alright!
[Sees Tanith standing there]
Marie Eaton: Tanith!
Duc de Richleau: Time itself has been reversed for us. Tanith's death; Peggy's abduction; the ride to Chilbury; the ritual in the cellar... all these things happened. But now, they have not happened. We're back. We are all safe again.
Simon Aron: And is Mocata also safe?
Duc de Richleau: You will also remember, Simon, what I said to you ...

glorious, non-stop, thrill of an adventure
21 May 2007 | by (Greenwich - London) – See all my reviews

Watching this on DVD after gap of a couple of years, more or less immersed in the horror of Italian giallo and the product of Japan, I am surprised at just how good this is. Has to be hot candidate for the best Hammer and one of the best Christopher Lee performances. He actually seemed to enjoy this role as an upper class Brit struggling to pit himself against the powers of evil. This reminded me a little of Night of the Demon and certainly shares with that film the 'ordinariness' of the chums struggling against the devil himself and the believable power of that 'dark side'. For me this just fails to get 100% due to what I reckon is the only disappointment; Leon Greene and it is a bit unfair because its probably more the way his part is written. This very English tradition of having a bumbling Dr Watson type character to help the lead to explain what's happening to the audience and also to show how very clever he is. Still, it's a minor gripe when this is such a glorious, non-stop, thrill of an adventure which I should also mention includes a most effective and key performance from Nike Arrighi who is most convincing as 'the possessed'. Excellent.
