    Didn’t want to mention this but there was a remake of this movie, with a woman playing the Devil wearing a red dress and … red shoes!!! Shoes are you ….????

    Not sure if Tim Curry’s Darkness from Legend would count, but you gotta love Curry and that Rob Bottin makeup, even if it’s not one of Ridley Scott’s finest moments.

    The Twilight Zone “The Howling Man”

    I remember liking the remake with Sting:

    Sting’s overacting fitted the road.
    A good soundtrack by The Police/Last Exit….

    Road…?
    Role.

    The video of the featured song is…interesting….in context.

    I’d like to balance the large amount of “evil” that has been building up with these posts with an opposite message for “good”
    … ehem … here goes;
    “Don’t listen to the Devil, he’s a very bad boy,
    embrace Cthulhu, Cthulhu loves you, Cthulhu will hug you*”

    *warning; there may be slime involved.
