Main Feature Great, Support, Not So Much.
on 11 March 2011
As usual 2 great transers and a great price - full credit to MGM for these (addictive) Midnite Movies releases. This, for me, is a straightforward support/main feature presentation. Watch Devils of Darkness first - it's an aimiable, colourful dud, a nicely shot tale of, eh, you know I can't quite remember, something to do with a vampiric cad called Count Sinistre who preys on beatnik type ladies. This is a barely passable time waster but it looks good (picture quality helps immeasureably) and I've suffered through a lot worse. Witchcraft is a different matter, I'II never forget glaring Yvette Rees as the resurrected vengeful witch, nor an addled Lon Caney Jnr as the enraged Morgan Whitlock. This film is so reminiscent of City of the Dead (Horror Hotel) in its dense atmosphere and successful blending of the ancient and modern. Well worth buying this DVD for Witchcraft alone, its a neglected classic.
