For those who traffic in the weird and odd, obscure and awful, bizarre and sublime of dreck cinema, Devil Story is a dream come true. Or at least a dream somehow assembled into movie form.
It is indeed as if a Jean Rollin movie crash landed and all the mangled elements that survived somehow reconstituted itself in the least coherent manner.
I say this lovingly.
It can be described. As it has by many and well so. But it must be experienced to be comprehended, if comprehension is even possible.
It’s the most disorienting movie I’ve ever seen. Which way did that horse go? Bang! And bang again.
Highly recommended to weird lovers everywhere.
