Night of the Devils
Directed by Giorgio Ferroni
A man is forced to stay with a family who are being tormented by a local witch in this nightmarish adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s short story “The Wurdulak”, which was previously filmed by Mario Bava for his 1963 horror anthology BLACK SABBATH. Though Giorgio Ferroni’s (MILL OF THE STONE WOMEN) version lacks Boris Karloff, it’s got Italian genre favorite Gianni Garko (THE PSYCHIC), who’s forced to face the fact that vampires, curses, and witches are real after an accident strands him in the middle of the woods. Featuring a superb score by Giorgio Gaslini (DEEP RED).

This was an ok movie. I would normally rate it at 3 stars as most movies of this era lost a lot of its polish in exchange for lower budget costs. But, the twist ending just reeked of poor sensationalism so that drops my rating down a star to 2.
I love 70s Italian horror, but this was just terrible. Incredibly boring. Opening with a 70s bush scene was the highlight. So at least watch the first 3 min for that
Bed and Breakfast gone wrong...
Solidly Spooky tale with tiny, but well placed dollops of gore and nudity (unfortunately, only occasional Italian camera spice).
