Italian genre legend Gianni Garko (Lucio Fulci’s The Psychic) stars in this terrifying masterpiece of the macabre, based on Tolstoy’s story The Wurdurlak, itself previously adapted in Mario Bava’s Black Sabbath. A nameless, mentally ill man (Garko) is found wandering in the woods, his mind lost in a fever dream of gruesome, sexual imagery. After being admitted to a psychiatric hospital, the man flashes back to his nightmarish encounter with a backwoods family whose dynasty holds a centuries-old curse, What follows is a night of unrelenting horror. Music by Giorgio Gaslini, composer of scores for films by Dario Argento and Michelangelo Antonioni and special effects by Carlo Rambaldi, known for his effects on E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and Possession. Atmospheric and gory, The Night of the Devils is a Euro-horror classic not to be missed.
