Trailers from Hell: David DeCoteau on Gooey, Drippy ‘The Devil’s Rain’

Trailers from Hell: David DeCoteau on Gooey, Drippy 'The Devil's Rain'

"Mutants, Ghosts & Devils!" week concludes at Trailers from Hell with director David DeCoteau introducing Brit director Robert Fuest's "The Devil's Rain," a critical turkey with a "protracted liquid climax."

Talented British director Robert Fuest's promising career took a downturn with the overwhelmingly negative critical response to this low-budget but well-cast US horror film ("…as horrible as watching an egg fry"– NY Times). The climax is an endless montage of gooey, drippy make-ups that presages the similarly protracted liquid climax of Gremlins 2 fifteen years later.
