DEVILS OF DARKNESS 1965
A decent little vampire film starring American actor William Sylvester who had settled in England after leaving the US Navy and became a staple 'American' character in many British B movies and television series. This was his penultimate big screen movie before retiring to the US and making small guest appearance in a couple of films during the 1970s.
A late horror outing for Lon Chaney Jnr. as a modern day warlock attempting to resurrect his ancestor who was burned for witchcraft and reclaim the lost family estates. Chaney does his best with a mediocre script and direction but as all too often comes across wooden and hammy but is ably supported by British actors Jack Hedley and Jill Dixon in her last film role before returning to the legitimate stage.
The winner here is "Witchcraft" which is nicely atmospheric in black and white, has good acting, and a narrative that has a few shock moments as it builds to a solid conclusion.
"Devils of darkness" is a bit of a toothless tiger - it looks good, but the script meanders, and it fails to deliver any real chills despite the potential of the set up and some capable actors.
So, 4 stars for "Witchcraft" and 2 stars for "Devils of darkness" to give an average of 3 for the set.
