Italian genre film legend Gianni Garko stars in this terrifying masterpiece of the macabre, based on Tolstoy's story The Wurdulak, 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 fever dreams of gruesome, sexual imagery. After admitted into 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 from films by Dario Argento and Michelangelo Antonioni and special effects by Carlo Rambaldi, known for his special effects on ET. Atmospheric and gory, The Night of the Devils is a Eurohorror classic not to be missed.
