    One of my favourite Hammer films � which has one of the most chilling and memorable lines in film history �

    My copy of this film is with several others of delightfully dubious quality, Hammer Horror Selection from Warner. This is the best of them, though Valerie Leon is in one of the others...

    zandycap,



    I recently bought a set of Hammer films from WH Smith for, I think, �10.00. 'The Devil Rides Out' is one of about 8 in the collection. The quality (and I'm talking about the copy quality, not the film quality) of all of them is good.



    As to 'The Devil Rides Out', complete amateur cobblers!

    I'd better not get you the new Devil Rides Out/Wicker Man boxset then!



    It's one of my favourite Hammer films too.

    Admittedly it's extremely dated FX-wise but I still enjoy it. One of Chris Lee's finest Hammer films in my opinion, together with the original Dracula and Rasputin The Mad Monk.



    My favourite Hammer movie is Quatermass And The Pit.

    A film that is certainly in my top 20 and possibly the first 'X' rated film I saw at the cinema.

    I have two niggles about it though: the way the story was shoehorned into a fairly short running time - in the book, the chase for the daughter after the pentangle scene takes place over a long period and for me is one of the best passages of the book; and secondly, why pick an actor for a role and then have another actor 'voice' him, ie: The man from the Barrett Homes ads (Patrick Allen?) voicing Rex Van Ryn?

    Hey ho, very picky I know lol.

    Hammer originally wanted Gert Frobe for Mocata. Would his casting have worked as well as Charles Gray?

    Not at all. Charles Gray was superbly cast.

    The idea sounded intriguing but I agree that Charles Gray was superb in the role.

    The Devil Rides Out is right out there as one of the best horror films ever made.



    I have seen it many times and never grow tired of watching it.



    There is a very good retrospective review of this classic on this very site!

    I'm not sure if this would qualify as my absolute favourite British film (too many to choose from) but it is one I never get bored with seeing, and my favourite Hammer film also. It has it's share of cheesy moments but that's part of the fun. Plus Charles Gray and Christopher Lee are magnificent. "Behold: The Goat of Mendes, the Devil Himself!"

    One of my favourite Hammer movies also, Greene was dubbed because his American accent was so bad.

    Gert Frobe would certainly have been closer to the dumpy, unattractive Mocata of Wheatley's book.

    I love this film. Me and my kid brother saw a scene from it in a documentary about heavy metal music and then stumbled across it on TV late at night. We taped it and watched it every week for about 3 years! "The goat of Mendes... the devil himself" It's actually pretty scary stuff!

    The Devil Rides Out is my favourite Hammer film ever made. I love it.



    It also has two of my favourite locations in it. The Edgwarebury Hotel and High Canons.

    I read the book some years after seeing the film. I enjoyed the book enourmously. Although the dream sequence that led to the climax was a little strange to say the least. It's one of those rare occasions where I think on balance I preferred the film and that's quite unusual for me.



    There was an episode of Hammer House Of Horror which was titled "Guardian Of The Abyss" and was ironically my favourite episode in the series. As well as being a kind of updated version of The Devil Rides Out, it also featured the lovely Rosalyn Landor as the female lead. She was the child in the original film.



    Wellendcanons.

    I went through a period a few years ago when I read all the DW "black magic" books and that was some time before I saw "The Devil Rides Out".



    Sometimes it can be quite disappointing to see the film after reading the book because you tend to have a mental picture of all the characters.



    I really liked the film - I thought Charles Grey was a magnificent Mocata - it was his eyes which "made it" for me. As for Christopher Lee, he was an outstanding Duke. I would have liked to have seen more of the white magic stuff from the book in the film - it would have given even more screen time to Christopher Lee!
