The Devil's Messenger is a 1961 anthology horror film combining 3 episodes of the 1959 B&W Swedish television series 13 Demon Street (which was never broadcast in the USA) with some new scenes featuring Lon Chaney Jr., Karen Kadler and John Crawford. This "feature version" of the series is the closest the U.S. came to seeing the TV series in the U.S. (although the entire series is now available on DVD in the territory).

The film includes stories about a 50,000-year-old woman found frozen in an ice field, a man's death foretold in dreams, and Satan's plans to blow up the Earth with atomic weapons.
