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.

Devil's Rock manages to be foreboding in its sets using only 3 main stages from what I can tell. In the featurettes section you get a good idea of how matte paintings can cheaply give atmosphere (and how much fake blood costs!). Speaking of extras the dvd is loaded with them including an insightful director's commentary. A real hidden gem, Devil's Rock won't disappoint,
You have a very limited number of characters, so the movie has time to develop them as individuals. There's grossout horror aplenty, and the demon is absolutely brilliantly played. Seriously, the acting was top-notch in this. The minimal sets were used to give a really nice sense of claustrophobia, and the interaction between the prisoner and the German were compelling enough to watch, even without the supernatural element.
Plus, there aren't nearly enough movies out there that mention, or even focus for that matter, on the very real missions that the Nazi's funded trying to find magical/occult/supernatural weapons to use against the Allies. Hellboy and Indiana Jones are the only two I can think of, and while good movies themselves, neither of them fit with this genre.
This movie is easily one of my personal favorites.
Once ashore and off the beach, the Kiwis encounter the expected German blockhouse and coast defense artillery position. It's at this point that their plan begins to unravel due to unseen forces within the Nazi bunker complex. Neither one of the Allied soldiers is mentally/psychologically prepared for what they encounter.
