The Devil's Hand (1962)
Boring and horribly inaccurate. That's the best way to describe this thriller about a man who gets involved in a satanic cult. First of all, there's LOTS of talking but the dialogue feels like chatter and has very little meaning. Secondly, the acting is tepid at best with no one really having a commanding presence on screen. Thirdly, I see nothing remotely connected to Satanism in this film. It's some weird voodoo rituals and drumming that have more to do with Haiti than it does with Anton Lavey. It's not a poorly made film. It's simply uninteresting on every level. Skip this one altogether.
