Eye of the Devil (1966) REVIEW
PLOT: Due to the crops failing for a third year vineyard owner Marquis Phillippe de Montfaucon returns to his castle on the French continent, Bellenac. Against his wishes wife Catherine and children Jacques and Antoinette follow him there. Unknown to Catherine his family have been involved for centuries in Pagan rituals and the time has come for Phillippe to sacrifice himself. Even the village priest Father Pere Dominic seems to have a sinister agenda and it isn’t long before his wife starts to notice strange happenings about the castle. These events mostly involve Christian and Odile de Caray, the mysterious and menacing twins who frequent the grounds.
FUN FACT: Kim Novak was originally cast as Catherine de Montfaucon but injured her back falling from a horse half way through the filming. Deborah Kerr was recast in the role and they had to start the shoot again from scratch.
