In the English countryside, the Duc de Richeleau (Christopher Lee) realises his young charge Simon (Patrick Mower) has taken up with the powers of evil, led by the mysterious Mocata (Charles Gray). Simon is about to baptised into the service of the devil so the Duc must act fast to save him, and Mocata is not about to roll over and let him steal away his newest disciple. Hammer’s adaptation of the Dennis Wheatley tale is a marvellously suspenseful and atmospheric tale, smartly adapted by Richard Matheson.
