Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Based on the book The Club Dumas, written by Arturo Perez-Reverte. Dean Corso, a somewhat sleazy rare book dealer, is hired by a mysterious patron who has just come into possession of one of the only three copies of The Nine Gates of the Kingdom of Shadows (a 17th century occult text said to give its owner unimaginable power). The man hires Corso to track down the other two copies and compare them to his, but complications - both natural and supernatural - arise at every turn.
Every book has a life of its own...

- Baroness Kessler: My latest work: "The Devil: History and Myth" - a kind of biography. It will be published next year. Dean Corso: Why the devil? Baroness Kessler: [laughs] I saw him one day. I was fifteen years old, and I saw him as plain as I see you now: cutaway, top hat, cane. Very elegant, very handsome. It was love at first sight. Dean Corso: 300 years ago, that would get you burned at the stake. Baroness Kessler: 300 years ago I wouldn't have said it!
Liana Telfer: Don't fuck with me! Dean Corso: I thought I just did.
Boris Balkan: [Crashing the black mass] Mumbo Jumbo! Mumbo Jumbo! [shouts] Boris Balkan: MUMBO JUMBO! Mumbo Jumbo!
Boris Balkan: Nothing is more reliable than a man whose loyalties can be bought with hard cash.
Ceniza: Even Hell has its heroes, señor.
- The opening credits feature the camera floating through nine sets of doors before the film begins.
The two booksellers Corso encounters in Toledo are actually the same actor, José López Rodero. Writer/director/producer Roman Polanski used a motion capture rig to use the same actor twice. The same man appears again later, playing two workmen cleaning out the bookstore. Rodero was an assistant director and production manager, not a professional actor. He was hesitant to accept these multiple parts.
The voice of one of the Ceniza twins (Pedro Ceniza) is dubbed by Roman Polanski himself.
The pen that Dean Corso uses is a limited edition Montblanc Agatha Christie ballpoint.
The keypad combination to Boris Balkan's penthouse office and to his private library is "666".
