Ken Coffelt’s review published on Letterboxd:
In the time since I last watched a Ulli Lommel movie (The Tenderness of Wolves), the man has died.
His work doesn’t get much love, but I thought that The Devonsville Terror was at least vaguely interesting.
Lommel co-wrote the screenplay with his then wife and star of the film, Suzanna Love.
It’s a tale of witchcraft in which it’s really about misogyny and oppression of the fairer sex, historically and in present times. And thus, a feminist critique.
It’s slow and dull and odd, filmed in rural Wisconsin.
The ending does feature an excellent face melt.
RIP, Herr Lommel.
