TRAILER - THE DEVIL RIDES OUT (1968)
Based on a 1943 novel by Dennis Wheatley, The Devil Rides Out is a stylish Hammer horror film made during the end of the studio's golden era. Christopher Lee gives one of his best performances as the heroic Duc de Richleau. The film was his favorite of the Hammer horrors. An exciting tale of devil worship and the occult, the plot has Lee trying to save the son a friend from falling under the spell of satanist Mocata, played with dripping menace by Charles Gray. The final black magic attack sequence is particularly lively. Directed by the always solid Terence Fisher. Also knows as THE DEVIL'S BRIDE.
