This is an excellent addition to MGM's Midnite Movie Collection. As we have come to expect, the transfers are 100% top quality. DEVILS OF DARKNESS in particular is so much better than the Region 2 version put out by Odeon Entertainment. Here, the colours are bright, the framing is perfect, the sound is clear. The plot is the usual hokum but with a bit of a slant on the usual vampire cult movie. William Sylvester again plays the lead as if he'd much rather be at home reading a good book and Hubert Noel is a bit insipid as Count Sinistre - after all, this isn't a Hammer film - but no one makes movies like these anymore which is a shame as there is both an innocence and a level of daring that seems contradictory but isn't. (What I mean is that the makers thought they were being provocative when today it all seems so tame.)
The real find for this viewer is the second feature, WITCHCRAFT with Lon Chaney Jr. Made in Britain in black-and-white it is nevertheless a superb little movie - great script, engaging plot, taut direction: an 80 minute masterclass in entertainment. Highly recommended to all vintage horror buffs who know a decent film when they see one. As ever, be aware that this is a Region 1 double-sided disc, but don't let that put you off.
