CROSS OF THE DEVIL (1975) Widescreen w/English Subtitles

(aka La Cruz Del Diablo, The Devil's Cross)

Review: Very rare and hard to find horror flick from the director of Hammer films "The Reptile, and "The Plague of the Zombies. Based on stories by 19th century writer Gustavo Adolfo Becquer, and originally adapted for the screen by Paul Naschy, before he was fired by the director, tells the tale of a writer, by the name of Dawson, who suffers from strange hallucinations under the influence of opium, involving the legendary Knights Templar pursuing a young woman through a forest. He retires to Spain in order to overcome his addiction, but instead encounters the superstitions that are driving his hallucinations. He is followed everywhere by a sinister demonic figure in a black hood who slaughters everyone he meets, framing Dawson for the killings.. Widescreen, in Spanish language, with English subtitles. Quality A-

Directed by: John Gilling
