Following the mysterious disappearances of several travelers in a rural part of southern Texas, a detective and a scientist from a nearby city are sent to investigate.

Made to immediately feel unwanted by the locals, they soon discover the remains of one of the missing, but in doing so begin to sense that something sinister is afoot in the desolate community they’ve entered. Determined to uncover the truth, the duo quickly find themselves faced with an unimaginable evil; a terror linked to Satan himself!

Reviews:

“Minor classic and unjustly forgotten horror film seems to have disappeared into the mists of time … I’m guessing that the film disappeared into the void since it probably had small distribution and was made about the same time as other western set horror films like Race with the Devil, The Devil’s Rain and others of that type. It’s a shame since the film is actually quite creepy and even scary.” Steve Kopian, Unseen Films

” … features an abandoned mercury mine, racist rednecks at a hunting lodge, death-by-rattlesnake, and a woman being burned alive. The heroine (Kelly) doesn’t show up until halfway through the movie. This played theatres as late as 1977, us usually on double-bills with imported horror films like Beyond the Door (1974).” Brian Albright, Regional Horror Films, 1958-1990

“Playing out quietly, stylishly, and just a little bit skewed, it’s the very definition of “regional rarity.” The film feels like S.F. Brownrigg (Don’t Open The Door) rubbing off on Leonard Kirtman (Carnival of Blood) in an isolated patch of no-man’s land in Texas. But nothing much happens.” Joseph A. Ziemba, Bleeding Skull!

“There are some surprises and one pretty good shock at the end that I did not expect. So the payoff is rather good in this one, especially if you like cult films, but the movie moves so slowly that you have to be patient.” Geno McGahee, Scared Stiff Reviews

” …with the pseudo-western “charm”, the scenery of the desert, the weird latin chanting, the red robes and torches, and the carrying of human sacrifice subjects out into the sunset and down into caves; you simply cannot deny that this movie does have some amount of atmosphere and suspense.” Jorge’s Film Reviews

Enter the Devil should be watched into infinity. It’s truly a fantastic film, and although I’m sure the pampered elite of gore-hounds (don’t worry, I’m still with you, mark my words) would find it “boring”, I can recommend it to almost anybody.” Adam Bezecny, The Liberal Dead
