On the Eve of D-Day, two Allied commandos sent to destroy a German gun installation uncover a secret occult lair where the Nazis are hiding a deadly she-demon, whom they plan to use to turn the tide of the war. THE DEVIL’S ROCK marks the directorial debut of special effects master Paul Campion (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, X-Men: the Last Stand), who crafts a bloody battle from hell in this Nazi-era frightfest. Featuring special effects and make-up by the five-time Academy Award® winning WETA Workshop (Avatar, District 9, Lord of the Rings, King Kong), this WWII-based film has been called “the best Kiwi horror since Peter Jackson’s Brain Dead.”
The Devil's Rock, June 5, 1944. A crack commando team comprised of Captain Ben Grogan (Craig Hall, King Kong, 30 Days of Night) and Sergeant Joseph Tane (Karlos Drinkwater, “Spartacus: Blood and Sand”) are sent on a top secret mission to destroy gun emplacements inside German occupied territory in the Channel Islands. Diverted off their landing point by strong currents, they eventually find themselves near the entrance of an ominous German bunker. After placing explosives on the gun turret, they surprise and kill a fleeing German soldier pleading for help. And when the screams of a woman follow from inside, Grogan makes the decision to go on an unauthorized rescue mission. Once inside, however, the Captain encounters much more than he bargained for: a scene of unworldly carnage, where only a mysterious Nazi officer and a beautiful but devilish captive remain alive, and the battle between good and true evil is about to begin.
