Ed Nelson (The Brain Eaters, Night Of The Blood Beast) gives an eerie performance as the Devil's partner in this ghastly tale.

Rating 4.0 A must for 50`s horror buffs Movie Lover: from SPRINGFIELD, NJ US -- August, 1, 2007

The noire-ish back drop is very effective and Ed Nelson`s acting is superb in this low-budget sleeper.It features unorthodox satanic exploits and all told was a unique offering for the genre.You`ll be too scared to laugh at this one, I assure you.


Rating 3.0 Uncle Joe vs. The Devil Movie Lover: from Maniac Manor -- September, 22, 2004

Edgar Buchanan is best remembered as the likably lazy Uncle Joe Carson from the TV show "Petticoat Junction" but for many years prior to that he played dramatic roles, usually in westerns. In this 1958 film he is a smalltown doctor who comes to believe that a local resident has been given amazing powers by selling his soul to the Devil . . . and he's right!
Old Pete (Ed Nelson) makes a pact with you-know-who in the opening minutes of the picture, these scenes are especially effective and scary.
The old man gains youth, wealth and the ability to change into various animals. Naturally no one believes any of that stuff; but when people who start getting too close to learning the truth begin turning up dead, well even the local sherriff has to wonder.
The cast is great. Watch for Richard Crane from the TV series "Rocky Jones, Space Ranger" as a gas station owner who is mutilated by his own (bewitched) dog and almost loses girlfreind Jean Allison to Old Pete, I mean Young Pete. Also in the cast is Byron Foulger who played many character roles dating back to the early 30's.
This is a fun film, moderately scary. Oh, and this is the rare UNCUT 73 minute version! There is another version which was edited down to 61 minutes when this movie played drive-ins on a double bill with MONSTER OF PIEDRAS BLANCAS. Thanks to Alpha Video for digging up the unct print.


Rating 3.0 Cover Art's Better Movie Lover: from Furnace Flats, USA -- August, 29, 2004

The cover art really makes this look like a fantastic movie but know that nowhere in this motion picture does anything even a little like what is depicted here happen.

Someone told me it was a "Occult Classic" and certainly it is the earliest film I have seen (1958) where devil worship is the dominant form of evil and in that light it might be a classic. But...whew there are better classics to be had!

A couple of amusing lines but nothing to larf out loud at.
