Surprisingly good...
29 July 2010 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"The Devil's Partner" is a low-budget 1950s film. However, despite a low budget, mostly unknown actors (aside from Edgar Buchanan of "Petticoat Junction" fame) and a simple desert town as a set, the movie manages to set a wonderfully creepy mood.

The film begins with an old man dying while doing some weird satanic ceremony--or that is at least what appears to be the case. A few days later, the guy's young nephew (Richard Crane) comes to town to claim the estate--he somehow KNOWS what's occurred even though no one knew the old guy had any relatives. This nephew seems like one of the nicest fellows you could ever meet (though oddly, he never seems to sweat--even here in the desert heat) and the townsfolk are surprised that the nasty old crank could have a nice family member! However, the audience soon sees that Crane is actually a devil worshiper and is using this power to harm people in order to get what he wants out of life! One man dies while drinking milk and another is mauled by his dog and a third is kicked to death by a horse (among other horrors)--all thanks to the 'nice' young man! Overall, I was quite impressed by the film. While mostly unknown actors, the cast did a very capable job--not what you might expect from a low-budget horror film. The writing was very good--with lots of creepy scenes and characters. Plus, with film work and music that all contribute nicely to the mood, you can't help but enjoy the film.

By the way....if I were the police, I'd deputize that Cairn Terrier!!
