Help me...help me.. get me out of here..
6 January 2003 | by diezmanSee all my reviews

I remember seeing this movie in a theatre when I was a kid back in the 70s. It was a very scary experience! from the opening credits with the Bosch paintings and the wailing tormented souls..help me...help me.. get me out of here.. to the end I was glued to the screen. A great cast including Ernest Borgnine, John Travolta (in a bit part) and Tom Skeritt

The Devil's Rain was released on DVD format. The picture and sound quality are both outstanding. It still has the same creepy effect on me as it did almost 30 years ago.

What I remember mostly about this movie was the walk home in the dark when it was over. The 2 miles to my house felt like 10!
