This film is a classic feast for all purist horror fans; if you're after gore, you will be disappointed; Indeed, you will probably be disappointed with the special effects, which as detailed in another review were not bad for the time, but fall into context when you understand that the studio forced the Director into including them to pull-in the punters. This is a slow-burning but quite disturbing film, not least because the baddie is allegedly based on the infamous British Occultist Aleister Crowley; The dvd includes both versions of the film - Curse of the Demon being the US title; un-edited 95mins long and edited 83mins. Will it go down in history? Well, it already has - being referenced in both Kate Bush's Hounds of love and the Rocky Horror Picture Show intro.
