The Devil Rides Out (1968) - (Christopher Lee) Belgian poster

This is a 13.5" x 21.5" Belgian poster designed by Paul Jamin for the 1968 Terence Fisher Hammer Production film The Devil Rides Out AKA The Devil's Bride based on the 1934 Dennis Wheatley novel The Devil Rides Out with screenplay by Richard Matheson and starring Christopher Lee as Nicholas, Duc de Richeleau. Plot summary: In 1929 in south England investigating the strange behavior of a friend's son, Nicholas Duc de Richleau, an expert on esoteric doctrine, determines that Simon Aaron [Patrick Mower] is involved with black magic and the occult. With the help of Rex Van Ryn [Leon Greene] Richleau rescues Simon and another young initiate named Tanith Carlisle [Nike Arrighi] from a death-worshipping cult. The rescue event disrupts a ritual on Salisbury Plain at which the Devil himself makes an appearance as the Goat of Mendes. Afterwards the rescue party is followed by the occult group's leader Mocata [Charles Gray], who has a psychic connection to the two initiates. He later conjures the angel of death in a series of nighttime black magic attacks. Richleau repels the angel, but it kills Tanith and kidnaps Peggy Eaton, [Rosalyn Landor] a young girl living with her parents in the home where they have taken refuge.
