A welcome group of extras, along with a fantastic widescreen transfer, makes RaroVideo’s The Night of the Devils a solid buy for fans of the genre.
— DVD TALK
A fine, very underrated shocker with a terrific payoff at the end, and definitely recommended for Euro horror fanatics.
— Digital Mondo
Giorgio Ferroni’s 1972 film Night of the Devils serves as a snapshot of the shifting styles and themes of Italian genre cinema in the early 1970s, a time where the gothic horror tales of maestro Mario Bava, Antonio Margheriti and Mario Caiano were beginning to meld with the rising tide of slick giallo cinema and more extreme horror grotesquery of Lucio Fulci.
— 10K BULLETS
A surreal, erotic and stylish Italian horror film with unforgettable imagery and an electrifying music.
