"Two awful flicks jammed together. See if you can spot the seams!"
1 stars

You've never heard of it. You'll never see it. To you this movie doesn't even exist. Lucky you.

The Devil’s Nightmare is ‘known’ under many titles, including The Devil Walks at Midnight, Castle of Death, Nightmare of Terror, Succubus, and Vampire Playgirls. This could be attributed to the fact that it’s a forgotten and repeatedly repackaged Italian schlockfest from 1971 - and also that it’s two movies jammed into one moronic bore.

Near as I could tell, one plot focuses on your standard ‘Ten Little Indians in a haunted mansion’ chestnut while the other centers on two naked lesbians in bed. It’s an odd collusion, in that the naked ladies actually seem to exist inside the horror movie section, yet their jarring (and rather wonderful) dalliances clearly came from another production.

Either way, we’re talking about indecipherable junk, so let’s not tax our brains too much.

Dubbed in awful fashion and presented with a deliciously moronic obsession with the word “succubus”, The Devil’s Nightmare is nobody’s idea of a good time. Aside from the outlandishly incongruous moments of lesbian groping, we’re looking at a wholly awful movie that only a devoted movie critic could actually sit all the way through.

Note: The movie is preceded by a short intro that features topless bloody female vampires writhing about, so there’s that.
