The Devil And The Castle – Part 3


Let’s start with the bad news: most of the castle is not open for visitors. And that is a shame because that is where most of the film was made. You will have to do with a visit to the watchtower. But first some more exterior shots. And finally, it is time to enter the castle (or at least the…

The castle where La Plus Longue Nuit Du Diable was actually filmed is the Château d’Antoing, also known as the Château des Princes de Ligne.

Inspired by movies – Adam’s Apples


I inherited my passion for movies from my grandmother. During the first ten years of my life, I lived with my grandparents and I still remember how cosy it was to sit between my grandfather and her, watching great classic movies! My taste in movies has changed over the years, just like my travel habits. In my younger days, I…
