When I bought the DVD, I was fully expecting a low budget movie, average acting and direction, so I wouldn't be disappointed. I was intrigued by the plot of the Allied commandos set out to raid enemy bastions on the eve of the D Day landings infiltrates German occupied Channel Islands to divert Hitler's attention from Normandy. When they successfully plant the bombs, they hear sounds of an apparent torture from the nearby bunker. Captain Ben Grogan (Craig Hall) despite the objection of Sergeant Joe Tane (Karlos Drinkwater), went to investigate assuming it could be a fellow soldier. While Grogan enter the large gun pit - bunker, Tane stands guard rather reluctantly giving the captain five minutes to do whatever he can. Soon hearing a gunshot he also enter the pit-bunker in search of Grogan. What he found was a book of black magic near a bloodied dead German soldier. The book in French, details with signs and symbols of the occult and Lucifer incantations, puzzles Tane who is killed by a someone in German uniform, soon Grogan is also captured.

That's an intro to the plot, which thickens and twists while weaving a web of horror. True, it's a low budget movie, but it's really well made. Great camera, audio, decent special effects, and an engaging story though sometimes the story drags a bit.

The entire cast, including the extras, is may be nine (that counts for characters after the main credits). Three main actors, since the character Tane is killed at the beginning, the story revolves around Craig Hall, the Nazi Colonel Klaus Meyer played b Matthew Sunderland, and Gina Varela's mysterious demonic entity.
Don't miss the epilogue: once the credits roll, wait for ten or so seconds until the film title, and see the epilogue.

Format: DVD
This is a well made, small budget flick from New Zealand and it has a setting that is becoming a new sub genre, that is the Nazi's and the occult. It starts the day before D-Day, when two New Zealand commandos have been sent to the Channel Islands as part of Operation Overlord and the subterfuge that was employed by the Allies. They are to blow up gun emplacements in a bid to make the Germans think that the Islands will be the staging post for the invasion of Europe. So far, so plausible, as they near their target they can hear tortured screams coming from the bowels of the cavernous outpost. Captain Ben Grogen (Craig Hall) decides it might be one of their men being tortured and so goes in against the advice of his Sargeant.

In some horrors you always want to know why do the `heroes' go into the big scary mansion where the lights don't work, instead of running as quickly as possible in the opposite direction. What director Paul Campion makes you realise is that it is foolish but heck you would probably do the same thing, so cliché avoided. A word about Mr Campion, he has worked as artist and painter on oodles of films including `The lord of the rings' trilogy but I think this is his first in the directors chair.

Well they go into the pit and to tell you any more would be a plot spoiler.
What I can say is that they do not find any of their comrades and most of the Germans are already dead, so what they do find is a whole lot worse. The German commander is Col Klaus Meyer (Mathew Sunderland) who is a member of the SS on one of Hitler's special missions to investigate the legendary witchcraft of the Islands.

First of all a call out to whoever decided to emblazen 'Saw with Swastikas' across the cover of 'The Devils Rock'.

Lazy and misleading; it's nothing like Saw at all!

Maybe who ever wrote this just loves alliteration; how about "Finding Nemo with Gnashers" for 'Pirahna', "Parenthood with Problems" for 'The Exorcist' or "Goodfellas with Giggles" for 'The Hangover'.

Anyway, 'The Devils Rock' is a very different horror film which confronts the demon/devil sub-genre in a solid, non-cheesy way. The acting is very good and the claustrophobia of the underground network (in which alomost the entire film is set) works very well.

An original take on the ending of the war, it is exectuted very well with gore a plenty along the way. The downside for me is the abrupt ending and the fact that very little actually happens throughout. Action packed and fast moving it isn't, a slow burner it most certainly is.

The special affects are commendable and the 'devil' looks very realistic. There's not enough good, old fashioned demons in horror these days!

I didn't love 'The Devils Rock' and there are far better horror films out there. That said, there's no huge flaws and the whole film is pretty neat and tidy. Worth a watch for sure, but for me it was just a little pointless, especially with the film grinding to a halt when it seemed to just be getting going.

Format: DVD
The Second World War. Widely considered to be perhaps the one and only true war where the forces of good battled evil. From World War II comes cinemas go-to villains: the Nazis. Indiana Jones hated them, Laurence Olivier's fugitive Nazi tortue methods left audiences squirming in The Marathon Man; and they proved to be a supernatural force to be reckoned with in Outpost. So, taking this villainous cinematic staple as its core, The Devil's Rock is a 2011 horror film from New Zealand but set in the German-occupied Channel Islands of World War II.

The Devil's Rock comes to audiences from the mind of British writer, Paul Finch. The backstory is well-researched and this is further fleshed out (for those interested) on the film's website.
Naturally, New Zealand acts as a substitute for the Channel Islands and the fantastically well-preserved Wrights Hill Fortress stands in for a German fortification. Its tunnels and hallways provided a suitably convincing, eerie and claustrophobic setting for this particular story to be told in.

The Devil's Rock plays out with only a handful of characters and once you've read the synopsis, there is little in the way of surprise when the true nature of the "beautiful but Devilish captive" is revealed. However, this does not spoil the film in any way since the focus of the film is more on the inner turmoil suffered by Grogan and questions arising as to where his own and the Nazi officer's loyalties truly lie...

I initially had gripes with the antipodean accents evident in the movie but these are ably explained away in the case of the commando team and the film's website paints a background of having spent time in education in England for the Nazi officer's intonation.
