Editorial Reviews

Two Kiwi commandos are assigned to the Channel Islands to blow up a giant gun at a beach head fortress. But once inside the foreboding structure they hear unearthly screams and investigate the dark tunnel system to discover the cause. There they find the head of Hitler's occult Gestapo squadron who has been experimenting with incantations from an ancient tome to allow a succubus to cross over from Hell. It's all part of a master plan to win the war on the eve of D-Day.

I can't say that I really expected much from the New Zealand horror import "The Devil's Rock." I thought it might be a bit of fun. After all, there are lurid visions of swastikas and demons on the DVD cover! So I braced myself for something cheesy and campy. I mean, really, when was the last time someone played demons straight? Perhaps it was lowered expectations that caused this film to catch me by surprise because I found a lot to admire about this relatively low budget endeavor. It surely isn't the greatest film imaginable, but it is solidly constructed and effective. An inspired premise, a claustrophobic setting, and good performances make "The Devil's Rock" stand out from the pack. While the marketing oversells the gore aspect of the picture (with a particularly odd reference to Saw), the movie isn't wall-to-wall carnage by any means. Rather, it has a slow build creepiness that draws you in and connects you to the characters before playing out the final confrontations. That's why the film works as well as it does, the screenplay takes its time and the actors make even the most preposterous scenarios feel real.

The movie takes place on the eve of D-Day during World War II. To distract the Germans from the impending Normandy invasion, Kiwi soldiers are targeting other sites within the Channel Islands. Two Allied soldiers arrive at an unspecified island with the goal of blowing up the German artillery installation. When they hear harrowing screams coming from inside the bunker, they feel compelled to investigate. Wandering the desolate halls, it's not a pretty sight as there is bloody evidence that something very unpleasant has occurred. Before the night is over, one will meet up with a German officer and face unspeakable horrors.

4.0 out of 5 stars THE DEVIL'S ROCK Renews My Faith In Plot-based Horror February 23, 2012
Format:DVD
"Do demons sleep, colonel?"

A few years back - perchance when all of the brutal SAW films and pale imitators emerged - horror flicks seemed to take a decidedly nihilistic diversion. Specifically, storytelling grew a bit lazy, often times reducing characters to impulse-driven sadists or masochists. Maybe players had a puzzle to solve or some bizarre riddle to answer in order to save themselves, but, visually, the films became nothing more than a seemingly endless quest to provide greater reason for more blood or increased torture. Gone was the story, and, in its place, were a macabre assortment of villains with no purpose other than dispensing revenge for what amounted to little more than one's comeuppance for schoolyard bullying.

THE DEVIL'S ROCK - a smart little independent feature out of New Zealand - has renewed my faith in plot-driven horror. Maybe it ain't the smartest. Maybe it doesn't spill the most blood. Maybe it doesn't manufacture the most intricate series of brainteasers or dispense the best torture, but it necessarily trims the best elements of horror back to its `haunted house' roots and deliver TWILIGHT ZONE-ish entertainment on a modest budget with excellent direction and terrific acting.

Plus, it's got a killer story!

The day before the D-Day invasion, Allied commandos Grogan and Tane (played respectively by Craig Hall and Karlos Drinkwater) have been given a mission to destroy a secret cannon in Vichy (French) territory in the Channel Islands. However, once they've arrived, a young German officer covered in blood - their sworn enemy - almost greets them with open arms, asking in his native tongue, "Have you come to save us?" (or something thereabout, as it's been many years since I studied the language!

5.0 out of 5 stars Way better then I planned on. May 22, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love B Movies and this one was Great. Well shot pretty good acting and a Great Story Line. I am hoping they may even make a sequeil. Maybe bring the succubus to the next major war in history I think it would be a promissing thought. Only time will tell AAA+++

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine little under-the-radar horror piece. June 10, 2013
Format:DVD
The Devil's Rock (Paul Campion, 2011)

2011, it turns out, was a surprisingly strong year for under-the-radar horror movies. I don't think any of them surprised me more than The Devil's Rock, a period piece that takes place just before D-Day off the coast of Normandy. That sort of thing just begs "abuse the hell out of me", but Campion (Night of the Hell Hamsters, a hilarious short you can dig up on Youtube), adapting his own story, resists the temptation by having all of the action take place in an island bunker, turning this into an interesting variation on the talk-piece. That just happens to contain the devil.

Plot: D-Day is in motion. Two commandos, Ben Grogan (The World's Fastest Indian's Craig Hall) and Joe Tane (The Two Towers' Karlos Drinkwater), are sent to take out a German gun emplacement on an island off the coast of Normandy. When they get there, however, they discover that someone--or something--has done their work for them, leaving only a handful of survivors, most of those dying. The only person who seems to have gotten away relatively unscathed is Klaus Meyer (Out of the Blue's Matthew Sunderland), a Colonel in charge of a secret Nazi project--making a pact with the underworld to ensure German victory in World War II. He seems to have done a better job than anyone expected him to, but he's managed to trap the demon in the summoning circle. The problem is, the demon is very good at manipulating humans--and Ben Grogan really, really misses his wife, Helena (Samoan Wedding's Gina Varela)...

This is a movie that's all about atmosphere--a small number of characters, a small number of sets, and a strong reliance on script and acting to pull it all off. It's not at all your typical horror movie, which may explain its surprisingly low ratings on IMDB (5.
