THE BLOOD ON SATAN'S CLAW - Marc Wilkinson - "A Living Nightmare" (1971)
"The Blood On Satan's Claw" is a genuine "CHILL-FILLED Festival of HORROR" all right, Yessiree Bob! Take the words right out of my mouth and welcome to Satan's Saturday Night Special!!
What I just found out was that "The Blood On Satan's Claw" was originally three stories that were blended together like a frozen margarita! When you know that, it makes a lot more sense!
The cinematography by Dick (Twins Of Evil) Bush throughout this film is outstanding, and the music by Marc (IF...) Wilkinson is also very effective!
Yep, this drought is definitely going to affect the farmer's fields of green!
I'm really not kidding, "The Blood On Satan's Claw" would be a better movie if Barry (Dracula Has Risen From The Grave) Andrew's character Ralph wasn't such a buffoon-looking Monte Python reject!
Every time Satan gets into one of these young gals, they start acting all weird for some reason! This girl was only locked into a dusty olde attic for a few hours before she went nuts!
When her fiancé is finally able to get in to see her, this is what he sees. He is consequently attacked, and after a struggle he is finally able to stab his attacker and cut off it's hand before he realizes it's his own hand!
Lovely Linda Hayden has the role of bad girl Angel Blake! Linda's career ran the gamut from "Baby Love" to "Madhouse" to "Queen Kong," and back again! She was still working up until a couple of years ago!
So, when it's all said and dead done, the bottom line is that Beelzebub is a goober pervert!
Here's another one of those shots that looks like a classic oil painting!
I couldn't make up my mind which one of these two pictures of these two girls I liked best, so you get them both! Reminds me of the two girls in the current season of "The Walking Dead" for some reason!
They'd like you to believe that this is just a story of a bunch of innocent kids in the country playing around.............................................................but it's not!
This is the way Angel looks just before she strips nude in an effort to break the will of the Reverend!
Once Angel is 100% under the influence of the devil, she gets these weird fuzzy old-man caterpillar eyebrows that don't really make her that attractive any more!
On the right is Wendy Padbury as Cathy Vespers. All you "Dr. Who" fans will no doubt recognize her as Zoe!
I'm not really into movies about dismembering, raping, and murdering children, and that's really what "The Blood On Satan's Claw" is all about!
Satan is a weird olde dude, but Angel seems to like him a whole lot, so I'm sure he's not really that bad if you just had a chance to sit down with him and drink a couple of beers, and find out what he's really all about!
What really got this movie an X rating in the UK was not all the sex or violence, but the graphic removal of the devil's hairball found growing on suspect individuals!
Burn in Hell all you Devil worshiping bitches and witches! I think I just read in the current issue of Screem magazine that "The Blood on Satan's Claw" has finally been released on Blu-Ray DVD, so if that's your cup of tea, you're in for a bit of luck!
