    When Robert Fuest took on “The Devil’s Rain” he had a solid cast of veterans (Ernest Borgnine. William Shatner, Ida Lupino and Tom Skerrit before “Alien” helped propel his career forward) and a newcomer (John Travolta in what amounts to a cameo) in a film that features gonzo performances (Borgnine and Shatner), a plot that isn’t altogether there due to time constraints which prevented Fuest from shooting all the scenes he needed to complete the film.

    The Blu-ray is a welcome addition for fans of B-movie horror films from the 70’s. The film is famed for its scene where many of the main characters faces and bodies melt. It’s still a pretty interesting sequence and for kids growing up in the 70’s it was quite a sight.

    Severin provides fans with a packed disc full of interesting special features focusing on the troubled production. “The Devil’s Rain” belongs to the category of so-bad-their-good horror films and remains a fun, over-the-top film. Shatner’s career had yet to upswing as “Star Trek: The Motion Picture” was years away (although Shatner discusses the proposed “Star Trek Phase II” series that the Roddenberry was beginning work on.

    “The Devil’s Rain” captures that perfect period after “The Exorcist” revived interest in horror films. Fuest’s sure handed direction helps sell a film that had production issues and ran short of cash preventing the director from achieving all he had wanted with the film. The film reportedly damaged Fuest’s reputation as he did little directing afterwards and Fuest provides some interesting comments on the making of the film in an archival commentary.

    Without Severin putting out films such as “The Devil’s Rain”, it would possibly be ignored or forgotten. This is the first (and best) transfer of the film to present the film in its original anamorphic presentation.

    Thanks Severin for bringing this film back from the hell of poor DVD presentations.
