The Devil 2007 Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
A political allegory wrapped in the guise of a gory horror film, Andrzej Zulawski s THE DEVIL did not escape the wrath of communist censorship. The film was banned in Poland for 15 years, before getting a sporadic release in 1987
Jakub (Leszek Teleszynski), a young 18th century nobleman, rots in prison for conspiring against the king. A mysterious stranger frees him, but in exchange he demands a list of Jakub’s fellow conspirators. Jakub follows the stranger on a journey across a nightmarish, snowbound countryside where they witness countless acts of brutal violence. Affected by the overall chaos and moral corruption, the young nobleman descends into madness.
THE DEVIL is a lost treasure of Eastern European cinema and a unique addition to the horror genre.
