Movie review: The Devil's Rain

I only saw the last 30 min. of this film this morning, while coughing up half a lung, but wow. It was awful. Yet also …awful.

The scenes I saw featured Tom Skerritt, Eddie Albert, and Ernest Borgnine as the leader of a devil cult.

Then Borngnine turns into a goat-man. Then the borg-goat melts. Then it explodes. Then it crawls from a hole.

Then it turns into a beautiful woman…. Then the beautiful woman hugs Tom Skierritt, then the camera turns to reveal Tom Skerritt hugging…ERNEST BORGNINE! All that in the LAST HALF HOUR!

Wow - now I know why Skerritt was so convincing saying “Kill me now” in Alien. He was thinking of hugging Ernest Borgnine.

Then the credits rolled and it turned out it also starred: William Shatner, John Travolta, Keenan Wynn, Ida Lupino, and ANTON LEVAY!

Ounce for ounce you’d be hard-pressed to find more melting flesh and green-bubbling eye sockets than in this film.

Bonus Points: A church burns down. Then explodes. Take that Jeebus.
