Movie Details

The Devil has been appearing in movies since the first version of Faust was filmed in 1900. Part of the 13-episode 100 Years of Horror series directed by Ted Newsom and hosted by horror movie star Christopher Lee, 100 Years of Horror: Witches & Demons examines the spell that the subject of the occult casts over movie audiences. Movies about witches and devil worship often conjure box-office magic, as interviews and production sidelights in this program show. Witches & Demons also features film clips from various occult movies. Host Lee starred in a number of occult movies himself, including City of the Dead (aka Horror Hotel) (1960), about an inn run by a 17th century witch who was burned at the stake and now lures victims for Satan. ~ Steve Blackburn, Rovi
