A film with barely a pulse!
9 January 2014 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

With a title like "The Devil's Cavaliers", you'd THINK the film would be exciting. Maybe not good--but exciting. Well, you'd be wrong as the film is about as exciting as watching your grandma knit! And, to top it off, it's very poorly dubbed and horribly faded. What more could you ask for in a film?! As far as the plot goes, it's about the rich nobles abusing their power and well, after that the film lost my attention! The bottom line is that the dubbing sounded awful and the voices coming out of the mostly Italian actors sounded silly--and rather cartoony. But, to make it much worse, the dialog was just god-awful. With lines like "They were set upon by brigands!", it's no wonder I eventually turned the thing off and stopped wasting my time.

Now I am not saying it's a bad film if you can find it in its original language and with a print that isn't so faded. Then, it might only be a bit dull. But as is, there just isn't much to recommend this snoozer.
