Get Back to Work!
16 November 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

The devil is back again. This starts out with a couple lazy servants, goofing around rather than doing their jobs. The man of the house scolds them, but when he leaves they're back messing around. Soon, good old Satan pops up and turns the two goof-offs into flames (seems a bit harsh to be condemned to eternal damnation for not doing your job). From here on hardly anything makes any sense. It primarily takes place in the underworld, just to show off some of the special effects. It's a typical Melies film which makes it fun.
