“The Devil’s Rain” will convince you that Ernest Borgnine has Satan on his speed dial. The film also has a bizarre obsession with eye attacks. It’s also considered to be the ultimate cult movie about cults. It’s an easy joke, but it still remains true. As you look through the Satanic Panic films of the era, there’s something that rings true with this film. It’s small, focused and sells its shocker ending. That ending might not have the power it used to pack, it still holds true for me.

While this film has been released on home video several times, it looks amazing on Blu. So much skin melting, eyes being lost and souls becoming intertwined…it makes my B-movie heart sing. So much will hit you in the short film’s run time. Hell, I just realized that William Shatner is playing Tom Skerritt’s younger brother. How in the hell does that happen in the casting department? The only person Shatner can play younger than is Borgnine. Pick this one up, cult movie fans.

The Plot Thus Far

A satanist cult leader is burnt alive by the local church. He vows to come back and haunts down, and enslave, every descendant of his congregation by the power of a book of blood contracts, in which they sold their souls to the devil.
