David Decoteau on

The Devil’s Rain

Released 1975
Distributor Bryanston Distributing

Talented British director Robert Fuest’s promising career took a downturn with the overwhelmingly negative critical response to this low-budget but well-cast US horror film (“…as horrible as watching an egg fry”– NY Times). The climax is an endless montage of gooey, drippy makeups that presages the similarly protracted liquid climax of Gremlins 2 fifteen years later.
