Horror starring Donald Pleasance and Peter Cushing. When a number of tourists disappear from a picturesque Greek village, anxious priest Father Roche (Donald Pleasance) turns to his old friend, private detective Milo Kaye (Costa Skouras). Roche and Kaye are joined by Laurie (Luan Peters), who is searching for the friends she lost on a recent camping trip near the ruins of an ancient temple. The ruins are on a pagan site owned by the sinister Baron Corofax (Peter Cushing). When Kaye, Roche and Laurie stumble across Corofax's secret it seems their fate is sealed. Those who enter the forbidden chamber of the minotaur must die.

Father Roche(Donald Pleasence) is a worried man. A number of people who have stayed with him have subsequently vanished after visiting a nearby region rich in archealogical sites. Roche knows it for other, more sinister reasons. Frustrated by the lack of help he recieves from the town's policeman, Roche calls on his friend Ted Milo(Costas Skouras) who is currently working in America as a private dick, with dick being the operative word in Milo's case. Anyway, the two men, who are accompanied by the concerned fiancee of one of the missing men, set off in search of answers, only to find that to trespass on Baron Corofax's land is a very bad idea. Soon all three face death in the land of the Minotaur!
I have watched this before in the mid-1980's on late night television. It seems like a real winner, with the dream ticket of Pleasence and Peter Cushing who plays Corofax. Well, thats not quite the case, but its a fascinating missfire all the same. There are some good points. Pleasence is terrific as the weary priest, and his performance keeps the whole ship afloat. There are a couple of pretty good set pieces such as the frantic race to stop the sacrifice and the scene where Cushing and Pleasence tensly discuss the use of an ancient pagan fetish as a childs rattle. The amazing soundtrack by Brian Eno also deserves a mention, a great mixture of experimental electronica and chilly ambient, it deserves a better film to accompany it.
There are some bad points of course to balace against the good. First of all, I've never seen Peter Cushing give such a lacklustre performance, and I've seen many of his films. He seems entirely disinterested with the proceedings. Secondly , theres the idiotic character of Milo.

This film is worth seeing in some strange way. It performs in the style of a very bad porno movie and is almost rewardingly bad. Peter Cushing does his very best, but then, he's always good. I can't recommend this film, though.

Having watched many of peter cushings films i can safely say that this is not one of his best but its certainly not his worst either.Made in 1976 and set in greece the story is basically about devil worship and human sacrifice.The cast perform reasonably well in particular peter cushing and donald pleasence who add life to what may otherwise have been a dull film with the script being less than great as is the directing but overall its not a bad film and certainly a worth while purchase for any cushing fan, just dont expect it to make your top 10 list of his best films

The Devil's Men represents what turned out to be one of the last gasps of the occult obsessed horror scene of the 70's shortly before Halloween came along, tore up the rule book, set fire to it and kicked it screaming through a plate glass window.

To cut a long story short a couple of enterprising Greek film makers fancy their chances of nailing together a new film franchise featuring the unlikely double act of womanising, wise talking American investigator Milo and stuffy but kind hearted priest Father Roche. An exiled nobleman is mixed up in some satanic jiggery pokery - offering up tourists as sacrifices to an extremely unfrightening effigy of the minotaur and only Milo and Roche can stop him!

Or something like that.

The reality is however horribly dull, frustrating and loaded with wasted opportunities. I strongly suspect that the fledgling film makers blew most of the budget on getting Donald Plesance, Peter Cushing and Brian Eno (for the soundtrack) onboard and hoped that would be enough to sway audiences in the English speaking world.

It isn't. The Devil's Men looks beautiful with assured, camera-work and fantastic locations. Eno's score, though basically just a one chord drone that he probably cranked out in an afternoon is suitably atmospheric and the movie is laden with cracking 70's crumpet including that Austrailian sort from Fawlty Towers and uber hottie Jane Lyle of Island of Death infamy. But there the positives end. Cushing sleepwalks through it, looking like he has a corn cob up his bum and Pleasance fusses about trying his best, but never quite getting things right. To make matters worse the character of Milo is appallingly flimsy and unlikeable.

Okay, so it doesn't look that good.
