The Devil Rides Out (1968) Poster

Alternate Versions

The 2012 UK Blu-ray Disc released by Studio Canal features digitally enhanced special effects. The makers of the Blu-ray claim to complete shots which had never been finished due to budget reasons:
  • Matte shot of Simon's mansion with the Observatory dome has been replaced with a CGI background.


  • During the ritual at the climax of the movie a lightning has been replaced with a new CGI lightning.


  • Spider sequence: Shadow for the spider has been added, some matte shots enhanced, and digital smoke added when the spider is sprayed with holy water.


  • The Angel of Death sequence: A light effect is illuminating the door to cover the poor original optical effect when the angel rides through the door. The close up of the Angel of Death has a new background with flames as the original intended shot was never finished.


  • The matte shots of Charley Grey's death in the fire have been digitally corrected as there were optical errors in the layers of the matte shots.


  • Several other matte shots have been improved by removing matte lines.
