4.0 out of 5 stars CULTISTS AND CURSES... May 12 2008
By Bindy Sue Frønkünschtein - Published on Amazon.com
I love these CRYPT OF TERROR double features! In this one we get LAND OF THE MINOTAUR and TERROR. MINOTAUR is about a cult of modern day minotaur worshippers (!) that abducts and sacrifices wayward hippies who happen to stumble upon their secret lair. Led by the eeevil Baron Corofax (Peter Cushing), the cultists pretty much own the tiny greek town they practice in. A priest (Donald Pleasence) attempts to get to the bottom of the disappearances, and finds himself caught up in the horrible goings-on. Now, this is no classic, and has some long stretches of tedium, but it's not a bad film. How can you hate a movie that opens w/ human sacrifice?? In TERROR, the two remaining members of a cursed family are threatened with extinction. It seems that their ancestors burned a woman as a witch, and she didn't like the idea very much. This makes for some fairly interesting stuff, as we get an impalement, a floating automobile, and a naked performance artist, among other things. Together, these movies are a terrific saturday afternoon time-killer...

3.0 out of 5 stars The Pete & Don Show Nov. 2 2013
By Chip Kaufmann - Published on Amazon.com
In honor of the 100th anniversary of the birth of Peter Cushing, I've been working my way through as many of his films as I can lay my hands on. In addition to the Hammer & Amicus triumphs, there are the occasional misfires like THE BLOOD BEAST TERROR and CORRUPTION to oddball low budget offerings like 1977's SHOCK WAVES (actually a pretty good film) and 1975's LAND OF THE MINOTAUR aka THE DEVIL'S MEN (which has to be seen to be believed). To call the film bad would be a kindness as this is, IMHO, the worst movie Cushing ever made. Donald Pleasence doesn't earn any gold stars for this one either but the two of them, professional as always, give this Greek vacation (for that's essentially what it is) its only real value. This BCI DVD is taken from a larger set of DRIVE-IN CLASSICS. The prints are decent but haven't been restored in any way. As for the other film on the disc, Norman J. Warren's TERROR (a better film but without Cushing), that's a review for another day.

Young tourists visiting a small Greek village near some ancient ruins are kidnapped and then offered as a sacrifice by a cult made up of the local villagers who worship a fire breathing stone statue of the Minotaur. They are led by a Carpathian arisocrat (Cushing) who is living in exile in this village. Pleasence is an Irish priest who constantly misplaces his accent while trying to get the goods on this cult. He calls in a New York detective (played by a Greek actor whose NY accent is non-existant) along with the girlfriend of one of the victims to assist him. The rest of the Greek cast at least get to play Greeks, something they are very good at. After the expected trials and tribulations, good triumphs over evil in an ending that is jaw-dropping in a WTF way. None of this movie makes any sense but then it was never intended to be a major release since it was handled by Crown International whose production values make AIP look like MGM. I had a good time but this one is really for Cushing completists only.

1.0 out of 5 stars Luckily for you, there's a morning after! Aug. 24 2007

Man, the films on this DVD released by Bci / Eclipse were nothing short of a bad grindhouse experience. The only reason I bought it was to see Cushing and Pleasance. I thought seeing them together in one flick would be amazing. Boy was I wrong.

Another thing, BCI did nothing to clean these prints up. Minotaur had a couple of annoying digital artefacts: grain, scratches, missing frames, washed out colors, and low res video. Audio was also of poor quality.

I guess I can't blame them since they probably knew in advance that this movie sucked and they didn't want it to cut into their profit.

Terror was a little more engaging but that's not saying much.

Luckily for you and me, there's a morning after where we can look forward to something better.
