La cruz del diablo is a 1975 Spanish horror film directed by John Gilling and starring Carmen Sevilla, Adolfo Marsillach and Emma Cohen.[1] Its plot concerns a British writer who travels to Spain to visit his sister only to discover she has been killed by a sinister cult. It was based on a short story by Gustavo Adolfo Becquer.




Writing in The Zombie Movie Encyclopedia, academic Peter Dendle called it "a disappointing final film for ex-Hammer Studios director John Gilling".[2] Glenn Kay, who wrote Zombie Movies: The Ultimate Guide, described it as an out of print film that is considered "uninspired and unimpressive" by those who have seen it.[3]
