Short-order satanic snoozer.
14 August 2011 | by (fabulous Las Vega$!) – See all my reviews

In days of olde, an evil but beautiful seductress and her alchemist cohort manipulate a wealthy Baron into serving Satan. He grows more power-hungry with each ritual killing, until a revolt of the working class is mobilized against him.

DEVIL'S POSSESSED is a weak offering, ennobled somewhat by Paul Naschy's dependable screen vitality. Despite having a few fleeting gory moments, it's a curiously tame item, and less a horror film than a medieval Robin Hood type adventure with poorly choreographed swordfight scenes. The strongest aspect of this production is the better-than-usual stylistic formulation of its period setting...hardly enough reason to sing great praises.

Forestall Ye this picture, lest Ye perish in boredom. 3.5/10.
