There’s great news as with most Powerhouse releases, The Devil’s Men has undergone a 2K restoration.

Powerhouse Films are including two versions of the film, The Devil’s Men is also known as Land of the Minotaur in the US. The American version is considerably shorter coming in at 86 minutes as opposed to the UK version of 94 minutes.
