Devil's Rain


Robert Fuest

The Preston family cannot escape their ancestral ties with the local coven who want their book back.

Fondly remembered from back in the day but time has not been kind - the gooey finale carries no frisson, and the script has too many people stating the bleedin' obvious.

Looking at the papers from the day, the film was still in production about a month out from its release.

Film debut for an almost unrecognizable John Travolta as a coven member.

The Satanic stuff is given a whiff of authenticity by virtue of Church of Satan founder, Anton LaVey and his missus, being among the cast.

Disappointing venture from director Fuest coming off of three cracking UK lensed films.
