Horror Move a Day reviews "Blood on Satan's Claw"

  • Posted by: Steve Biodrowski

Horror Movie a Day attended the double bill of HORROR EXPRESS and THE BLOOD ON SATAN'S CLAW (a.k.a. SATAN'S SKIN) at the New Bevelry Cinema this weekend, and the reaction was very positive:

  • Anchor Bay released this one (under the Blood on Satan’s Claw title) but only in Region 2, so it should be relatively easy to find if you're not in America. It's also been released on VHS, whatever that is. If you can watch it though, I highly recommend it – it’s like Children of the Corn meets Wicker Man, something I mean in the most positive way possible. Hopefully a stateside release will be coming along promptly. Like tomorrow.

    Like I said earlier, it screened with Horror Express, a film that I really enjoyed when I watched it, despite being a god-awful transfer. Unfortunately, the print they showed wasn’t much better – it was scratched to hell, and each reel had a different color timing to it (one was too red, the next one looked right, then the next one was too yellow...). Still, a damn fine film that is also largely overlooked. Support strange 70s horror!

Now I'm really sorry I didn't make it out. Damn!
