In the late 1960s the world of exploitation cinema was changing fast, and by the time The Devil Rides Out appeared in 1968 its stiff upper-lip approach alienated American audiences.

A favourite of leading man Christopher Lee, The Devil Rides Out is now seen as a classic, compromised only by its unfinished special effects and some misjudged re-voicing.
