Editorial Reviews

Gianni Garko plays an insane man admitted to a psychiatric institution that no one can identify. While in ward, he starts having flashbacks of what brought him there. He starts to remember how his car broke down and when he went looking for help he came upon a strange man burying his dead son. Strange scenes of the macabre ensue leading up to the gruesome night with this backwoods family who secrets are slowly revealed. What strange curse is this family hiding?

5.0 out of 5 stars Ferroni's Undead Reboot January 6, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
When I had read throughout various Euro Cult Cinema websites that Raro Video USA was releasing Director Giorgio Ferroni's 'THE NIGHT OF THE DEVILS' aka 'LA NOTTE DEI DIAVOLI"-1972 on BluRay , I shivered with anticipation. Available for over a decade in inferior VHS and DVD bootlegs, the film can now be fully appreciated in its wonderful 2.35 glory with updated English subtitles and gorgeous DTS-HD MA 2.0 audio. Director Ferroni touched many genres including sword and sandal and a quartet of Spaghetti Westerns with actor Giuliano Gemma but only made two entries in the Horror/Thriller genre, this one and the wonderfully atmospheric 'MILL OF THE STONE WOMEN' aka 'IL MULINO DELLE DONNE DI PIETRA'- 1960 available in a beautiful transfer from the Mondo Macabro label. The short story by Tolstoy 'THE WURDALAK' was unforgettably lensed as part of a horror trilogy by Horror maestro Mario Bava in 'BLACK SABBATH' aka 'I TRE VOLTI DELLA PAURA'-1963 starring Boris Karloff but now Ferroni reboots the tragic family tale into a modern setting somewhere in the Hungarian countryside. By having our protagonist confined to an insane asylum, we are allowed to experience the nightmare in flashback culminating in an exciting climax at the fade out. The cast is excellent: Gianni Garko who is known to Euro fans as the classic Western character Sartana : the stunning Agostina Belli who made many genre titles including Director Edward Dymitryk's infamous version of 'BLUEBEARD'-1972 (wait till you see her beautiful blue eyes in Blu-Ray) and other familiar faces including a wonderful cameo by actress Maria Monti who plays the eerie witch of the town. Monti also acted in Bava's 'DROP OF WATER' episode in 'BLACK SABBATH' .as the spiritualist's housekeeper. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Eurohorror film March 1, 2013
By Duspan
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I was truly entertained by this lost masterpiece. Takes me back to Saturday night movie marathons (which no longer exists thanks to dumbed down American Idol TV wanting audiences). Raro Entertainment's restoration of this film is right on par with a Criterion quality release, be proud, very proud. What I got out of this film is that this is not a zombie move. It's not a werewolf, it's something in between.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Blu-ray. April 17, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
I'm not sure what the deal is here but every time I click on this title Amazon does not have it in stock so I feel an urge to speak up. As of this writing the THE NIGHT OF THE DEVILS Blu-ray is still in print and can be purchased directly from Raro (that's how I got mine). Look them up. It's a fantastic disc. Show them your support. It's also worth liking them on Facebook. You not only get product updates but they sometimes offer a free bonus DVD with purchase. And no I don't work for the company I just dig what they are doing. Hopefully Amazon will clear this issue up (more sales for Raro) but it's been going on for months.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Night of the Devils December 12, 2012
Format:DVD
Giorgio Ferroni (1908-1981) was an Italian director that helmed almost every kind of genre of films, including war, ancient Rome, Mythology, and more. He also made incursions into the then popular culture of Italian horror movies during the early seventies, a great result being the penetrating and electrifying "The Night of the Devils."

Gianni Garko, who we meet at the beginning of the movie after being found in the wild and taken to the hospital, is Nicola, the unlucky fellow who crashes his car in the woods, trying to avoid a lady that crossed his way. He looks for help at the closest town that he is able to find. Only that this town is almost deserted - and there is a good reason for it. The only family left is the one led by Gorca (Bill Vanders), who has told his family that if he doesn't show up at a certain time to the house, to not let him back in, because he will kill them all. Many that have done so in town have had that experience, and met a horrible dead. It is the curse of Vourdalak, that is, incorporeal material creatures, which has taken over the community and created a never-ending chain of death. Nicola, of course, is incredulous, but he will learn the hard way. In addition, things get complicated when he falls for Sdenka (Agostina Belli), Gorca's beautiful daughter.

The film is dark and the atmosphere is eerie, like a good horror flick should be. It also has some nudity, as it was required during those years in Italian Cinema, and it has survived the test of time as a Euro-Horror classic. The Blu-ray edition features interviews with Chris Alexander (Fangoria Magazine) and composer Giorgio Gaslini, and a great booklet with the story of the film and its director. (Italy / Spain, 1972, color, 93 min plus additional materials). Reviewed on December 3, 2012 by Eric Gonzales for RaroVideo Blu-ray

5.0 out of 5 stars Low Budget Italian Horror Film Better Than Most January 18, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Giorgio Ferroni, the director of "The Night of the Devils" (AKA: "La Notte dei Diavoli"), did not make many horror films, but he was an accomplished director in the Italian film industry for many years prior to 1972 and the release of "The Night of the Devils." Raro Videoo has brought us this blu-ray and DVD edition and although I had at first gotten one with intermittent sound, the second try was worth the effort. It is based on an original story by Tolstoy made more famous as part of the trilogy Mario Bava directed with Boris Karloff titled, "Black Sabbath" that is hard to find the original American release actually using Karloff's voice and not dubbed in Italian now. The Ferroni reboot has a good script by Eduardo Manzanos Brochero and Romano Migliori and utilizes great special effects by Carlo Rambaldi ("E.T."), music by Giorgio Gaslini and cinematography by Manuel Berenguer with editing by Gianmaria Messeri. Because it was 1972 and they were permitted to up the nudity and gore factors (although it does pre-date much of Dario Argento and Lucio Fulci's gore-fests (remember 1972 was the same year we saw Sam Peckinpah's "Straw Dogs" as ultra-violent), the film holds up well today. The film stars Gianni Garko and Agostina Belli, a pretty girl who was next seen in Sergio Solima's 1973 "Revolver" with Oliver Reed and Fabio Testi. In both films, the actress hardly uses her facial muscles, which is great for some actresses through the years allowing them to have incredibly unlined skin in their forties and fifties but does not say much for their acting. It is not so terrible here, but in "Revolver" she had an even more integral part and this deficiency sorely affected her performance and the film which was very good nonetheless. Read more ›
