The Devil's Rain back to product details

Delicious Melted Cheese

You gotta love a movie with a credit for technical director as "The High Priest of the Church of Satan" (the guy also has an effective small part in the film). This is no "Exorcist", but it is excellent cheese. Ernest Borgnine and William Shatner act their roles to pieces, which is exactly what they should do, and veteran actress Ida Lupino actually manages to lay an air of dignity throughout her role; eyeless or not. The special effects are well... lots of eyeless faces (the eyes after all are the windows to the soul, and most of the cast ain't got their souls anymore), and a stunning ten-minute finale of melting, oozing faces and bodies, moaning and writhing in an acid rain. Great stuff! Great creepy soundtrack and production values too, as well as effective opening credits courtesy of Heironymous Bosch. Is this movie scary? No. Is it fun? Yes. An excellent rental to cuddle up with on a stormy night or Halloween.
