England in the 1920s; Duc de Richleau (Christopher Lee) wrestles with the charming but deadly Satanist Mocata (Charles Grey) for the soul of his friend Simon Aron (Patrick Mower) who has been seduced by Mocata and his coven, who are known as The Left Hand Path.
Richleau must draw on all of his knowledge of white magic to defeat the resourceful Satanists. Boasting
a screenplay by Richard Matheson
(I Am Legend; numerous Twilight Zone episodes), who adapted Dennis Wheatley’s celebrated source novel, The Devil Rides Out was a passion project for Christopher Lee and remains one of Hammer Studios’ most sophisticated productions.
Screening as part of Haunted Landscapes, A Season of Folk Horror. July 16th-30th.
