The Devil Rides Out

The Devil Rides Out ★★★★

Hoop-Tober 2021 Entry #27

Featuring Christopher Lee in a rare (if slightly excitable) heroic role, THE DEVIL RIDES OUT is a great slice of near-cosmic horror. It may get more than a little heavy-handed with its pro-Christian themes trouncing the evil satanic cult (a touchstone of many of director terence Fisher's films) but the pluses outweighs the few minuses for my money: this is a lovely shot film with some great visuals including a truly cool depiction of the Horned One himself, and an intense sequence involving our heroes in a circle of protection when the Angel of Death approaches. Things get weird in the best possible way.
