Storyline

Fiendish Moloch and his huge creature Styx kill a chauffeur and kidnap his passengers, who are en route to a bachelor party. The two abductees (a bridegroom, who's heir to an English country estate, and the estate overseer), are forced to slog through foggy moors to an ancient Gothic fortress. As dawn approaches, the diabolic pair push their captives to speed up, because the demonic creatures fear the coming of light. Written by David Stevens

The Fiends
30 October 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Ronald Howard plays Robert Penrose, who is a bridegroom and heir to an English estate who finds himself abducted from his car late one foggy night by two fiends; Squire Moloch(played by Henry Daniell) and his giant henchman Master Styx(played by Richard Kiel). Both bring Penrose to their Gothic lair to force him to sign over his inheritance to them, or face not only death, but a fate worse than that for his lovely fiancée(played by Fintan Meyler)... Moody and heavily atmospheric episode only suffers from an ending that may come as a trite letdown, but this still works quite well in spite of that, with fine performances by all.
