Devils Of Darkness
A vampire in search of a precious amulet terrorizes a village in this seemingly-cobbled-together horror film. Using a kitchen-sink approach by blending multiple monster movie tropes together, Devils Of Darkness doesn't have very many devils in it. There is an unconvincing vampire bat dangling from a string, a group of red-cowled, torch-wielding villagers, a swinging party filled with subtext, and at least one boom shadow.
I don't know about you, but I mistrust overly friendly people. What's their angle? They definitely have something up their sleeve. And chipper people, man, they're suspicious as well. And people who say "Darling" every fifteen seconds.
Anyway, I'm pretty sure the filmmakers were confused about what vampires are, and just threw some vampire stuff in this movie to go along with the devil worshipping, but it still isn't very interesting.
