This was the last film of prolific director John Gilling. He hadn't planned to make it, but he was on vacation in Spain when he was asked by his friend, actor/director Paul Naschy, to direct it for him. See more »
The fifth 'unofficial' part of "Blind Dead" quartet.
"La Cruz del Diablo" aka "The Devil's Cross" is based on stories by the 19th century writer Gustavo Adolfo Becquer,who was considered Spanish Poe.The film was scripted by Paul Naschy and directed by Hammer veteran John Gilling.The writer Alfred Dawson has opium visions,in which he sees undead Templars on horses pursuing a woman through a forest.One day he receives a letter from his sister,which instructs him to go to visit her in Spain as she seems to be in trouble since she lost the child she was expecting.Arthur goes to Madrid and finds that his sister was murdered.Then he is stalked by a creepy figure in black hood,who kills his people close to him.The figure is the Devil himself and skeletal zombie Templars wielding swords do appear near the climax.Very atmospheric and extremely obscure Spanish mood piece with competent direction by Gilling,rotting skeletons,drug hallucinations and old crumbling castles.The score is haunting as is the main performance of Ramiro Oliveros.7 out of 10.
