In their Stark Trek roles as Captain James T. Kirk and Seven of Nine actors William Shatner and Jeri Ryan regularly confronted fearsome villains all across the galaxy, but in the new horror film Devil’s Revenge they’ll confront the ultimate evil; the forces of hell! If the trailer is any indication the resulting conflict will be a blood soaked, bullet ridden, and over the top battle. In the trailer we see an archaeologist (Jason Brooks) obtain a cursed relic that turns his life upside down and causes him to hallucinate sinister visions. It’s a relic that his heavily armed and intense father (Shatner) seems to know a whole lot about. Dad says that the only way to break the curse is for him, his son, the archaeologist’s wife (Ryan), and their children to return to the cave, take on the army of demons that inhabit it, and destroy the source of the curse.
Ryan and Shatner aren’t the only Star Trek alumni attached to the film. Jason Brooks had a small role in the 2009 Star Trek film. And the film’s writer, the late Maurice Hurley, wrote several episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
The film’s director, Jared Cohn (Alien Predator 2018) has directed a number of low budget and independent horror films. Ryan’s horror credits include the Syfy TV series Helix and the film Dracula 2000. Hurley wrote the Next Generation episode that introduced the zombie like race, the Borg, and Groom Lake(2002) a sci-fi horror film that Shatner directed and starred in. Shatner’s horror work includes that film as well as A Christmas Horror Story (2015), and the classic Twilight Zone episodes “”Nightmare a 20,000 Feet”” and “”Nick of Time.””
Cleopatra Entertainment’s official description for Devil’s Revenge is, “A down-on-his-luck archaeologist returns from a cave expedition that contains a cursed relic that’s also a portal to Hell. He discovers that the only way to stop the curse on his family is to go back to the cave and destroy the relic.”
