The Loft Is Showing a Really Weird Movie Tonight

Posted By on Mon, Jul 30, 2012 at 2:00 PM

A few things I learned today about The Devil's Rain, made in 1975 and showing at the Loft tonight at 8 pm as part of their Mondo Mondays series (only $3 and apparently there's some sort of $1 snack bucket available!):

1. The film stars William Shatner (between the Star Trek series and the movies), Ernest Borgnine, Keenan Wynn, Tom Skerritt, Eddie Albert and John Travolta, who makes his film debut as "Danny the Melting Satanist."

2. Anton LaVey is credited as the movie's technical advisor.

3. The poster promised "absolutely the most incredible ending of any motion picture!"

4. The film's universal panning was considered the end of English director Robert Fuest's promising film career, forcing him to work in television until he returned to the screen with Aphrodite, which Wikipedia describes as a "1982 French soft-core exploitation film".
