Above average Euroschlock.
27 December 2001 | by InfofreakSee all my reviews

'The Devil's Nightmare' starts of well with a flashback sequence involving a Nazi, a knife, and a new born baby. You guess what happens. Then we flash forward to the Seventies with a coach load of tourists turning up at a spooky castle. Pretty quickly we work out that they represent the seven deadly sins (the chubby bus driver constantly munching on chicken wings and sausages was a big help!), though they all seem to moonlight as lust, which is not too surprising in this kinda Euroschlock. Erika Blanc mysteriously turns up, flaunts her cleavage, gets a priest all hot and bothered, and may or may not be a succubus. Soon enough we get a groovy fuzz guitar soundtrack, some hot lesbo action, and a series of bizarre murders which are almost Argento lite. Not too bad at all, and Daniel Emilfork makes a pretty hip Satan.
