April 29th, 2014: The Devil Rides Out

The Devil Rides Out

Cast and Crew: Terence Fisher (Director); Richard Matheson (Screenplay); Dennis Wheatley (Novel)

What It’s About: World War One veterans and former fighter pilots Duc de Richealu (Christopher Lee) and Rex Van Ryn (Leon Greene) work to save Simon Aron (Patrick Mower), the son of one of their compatriots, from the cultist Mocata (Charles Grey).

Why Watch it Today?: The Devil Rides out begins on the evening of April 29th.  One of Hammer (and Lee’s) best, The Devil Rides Out is great pulpy fun pitting Richealu and Mocata in a battle of knowledge, wits, and wills.
