The Synopsis for The Devil's Rock (2011) 720p

On, June 5, 1944 in the early morning hours before the opening of the invasion on D-Day, a commando team, consisting of two New Zealander's, Captain Ben Grogan (Craig Hall) and Sergeant Joseph Tane (Karlos Drinkwater), land on the one of the Channel Islands, which are occupied by the German Army. Their mission is to sabotage installations there to create a distraction from the actual landings at Normandy. Using kayaks they land on the beach, navigate the land mines, then climb up to their target: a large artillery gun overlooking the English Channel. They are confused by the lack of German patrols on the island and puzzled by strange screams coming from the German's main bunker. They find the gun unguarded and wire it with explosives. While they are placing the charges a German soldier (Luke Hawker) comes running out of the entrance of the underground bunker. Although he seems less concerned about running into the enemy than getting away from something in the bunker, the New ...

Old SkoolReviewed bycaptain-balrogVote: 10/10

It's been a long time since I saw a horror film like this. By that I mean one that has a coherent and well thought out story told through believable dialogue.

I've read a few bizarrely negative reviews here. When I say bizarre I mean some of the reasons for giving it low marks.

Here are my two favourites:

It's not going to make money – This is honestly the first time I've seen a film marked down on cost/benefit analysis.

There's only three people in it – Really don't know what to say to that. Maybe Australia would be more up this person's street; I hear there's loads of people in it.

Anyway, here are my positives:

Well acted.

Sets and setting looked great – stark, grotty and bloody. Everything a growing horror film needs.

Didn't rely on cheap window rattling and supernatural wind 'Scares'. Made what the Nazi soldiers were doing more believable somehow.

Resisted the modern-day urge to crowbar humour into the dialogue.

The demon was played by a real person in makeup. Looked great as a result. You just know that a big budget film would have made it a ridiculous CGI creature with wild, over the top magic powers. It's a bit of a beef I have with modern films but I just think that actual people put in much more real and believable performances than computer graphics. And of course they look like they're actually there in the set, because they are.

And the negatives:

German soldier didn't have a German accent? I know the jury is kind of out on that one. Some people think that context is enough and an accent can be in poor taste or whatever. I sort of agree sometimes because I'm from Belfast and I've heard some really shocking attempts at the accent over the years. Maybe it's because I'm not German but I think I would have liked an accent in this instance.

The gunshot wound – Now I know it might seem silly to question the plausibility of something like this in a film about a captive demon on a Nazi held island, but unlike the accent issue this one is all about context. In the context of the film all the occult elements make sense, but the Nazi soldier seemed to get a lot better after the bullet was pulled out. I mean I'm not a doctor but it just appeared that the bullet was the real source of pain and suffering, and not the gaping wound it created.

Gina Varela looked fantastic as the demon but I would have liked to see more of her. She was naked and painted red and I think it would have added something to the disturbing nature of such a demon if we had seen more of her very fine body beneath the demon's face. This isn't some sad need to see T & A; I could have just watched some mindless rubbish like the new piranha film for that. I found it really got under my skin that she was still attractive as the demon. Could have made more of that perhaps.

Overall:

Loved this film. Really good example of what can be achieved in the horror genre by just doing old skool film making well.

Unlike others who enjoyed this film I've given it ten out of ten, not because of the disproportionate negative reviews, but because it was just right up my street.

Surprisingly effectiveReviewed byLeofwine_dracaVote: 6/10

THE DEVIL'S ROCK is a little-known but more than effective Kiwi horror flick set during the dark days of WW2. It's one of those films that links the Nazis with the occult, exploring their penchant for black magic with a very dark storyline, although unlike most it doesn't go down the obvious route and just real with Nazi zombies. This time things are a lot odder, and dare I say it, more effective.

The film is oddly set on the Channel Islands, as a couple of soldiers infiltrate a Nazi bunker and discover that a massacre has just taken place. What soon unfolds is a plot involving devil worship, black magic, and the summoning of a powerful demon with a taste for human flesh. For a low budget movie, this is decent: for most of the running time we're trapped with three actors in a single location, and yet it never feels stale or boring.

I'm not saying that THE DEVIL'S ROCK is a masterpiece, because it isn't. The acting and script are only average. Matthew Sunderland gives the best performance as the conflicted Nazi colonel, and it's a shame when his character turns out to be far more ordinary than you expect from the set-up. Still, there's plenty of flowing gore on offer here, alongside effective demonic scenes that bring to mind the best of the Dennis Wheatley classic, THE DEVIL RIDES OUT. Horror fans should enjoy themselves.

Good little horror flick.Reviewed bylewiskendellVote: 7/10

The Devil's Rock is a bloody little horror movie that I really enjoyed. The link between the occult and Nazis has been explored many time in horror movies, but I've never seen it done quite the way it's seen here.?

The setting is an island in the English Channel, shortly before D-Day. Two soldiers from New Zealand sneak onto it on a mission to blow up a Nazi anti-aircraft gun. The pair are lured deeper into the bunker by the screams of a woman after completing their task, and stumble upon a true horror.

The Devil's Rock has a small cast and is primarily set in one location, but those settings and characters are used very well. So are the practical special effects, which were pretty fantastic for a production this small.?

What I liked most about the movie was the pacing, which gradually ratcheted up the tension until I was almost squirming by the end. This isn't the kind of flick that relies on jump scares and loud noises to get your heart thumping. Instead it layers on the menace and foreboding.?As I mentioned earlier, I really enjoyed it. If you're the kind of horror fan who gets a kick out of a good demon story and likes the more low-key, atmosphere and character-driven approach, definitely give this a try.?
