At one point in the film, there is a very subtle reference to the "Curious Case of Benjamin Button", the short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald first published in 1922. When Myles is having his facial mask done by Paula, Duncan comes into the room and after a few moments says "People should be born at seventy, and live their life backwards!" This is the exact age of Benjamin Button when he is "born" in the Fitzgerald story. See more »
A good plot similar to HP Lovecraft's "The thing on the doorstep" without the "innsmouth look" of Asenath but with the body swapping of devil worshippers attempting an eternal leapfrog through history using others bodies . Violence is kept to a minimum the required evil for this horror is amply supplied by absentee devil who's decadent servants plot and dissemble to increase their own worth , chilling dreams of the blue wax applying witches are the best moments. Alan Alda's performance was believably naive and overshadowed by a masterful and compelling kurt jurgens dry self absorbed and above the pettiness of his guests . Miss Blisset charming, beautiful ."The Ninth gate" , "The night of the demon" may be better films but would happily keep company on the same shelf.
