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.. 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). In this 1961 feature version of the 1959 Swedish TV series 13 Demon Street, a 50,000-year-old woman is found frozen in an ice field, a man's death is foretold in dreams, and Satan plans to blow up the Earth with atomic weapons. With the help of his seductive subject, Satanya (Karen Kadler), Satan (Lon Chaney Jr.) attempts to recruit new people to join him in Hell. Satanya targets a scientist who discovers a woman frozen in ice, a sex-obsessed photographer and the man who drove her to commit suicide. This horror film also follows Satan's plan to blow up the planet with nuclear bombs.
