Product Description

Product Description

Once proclaimed as positively the most horrifying film ever made , Mark of the Devil finally arrives uncut in the UK.

A bloody and brutal critique of religious corruption, Mark of the Devilsees horror icon Udo Kier (Flesh for Frankenstein, Suspiria) play a witchfinder s apprentice whose faith in his master (Herbert Lom) becomes severely tested when they settle in an Austrian village. Presided over by the sadistic albino (a memorably nasty turn from Reggie Nalder), the film presents its morality not so much in shades of grey as shades of black.

Written and directed by Michael Armstrong, who would later penEskimo Nell, The Black Panther and House of the Long Shadows, this classic shocker has lost none of its power over the years especially now that British audiences can finally see it in one piece.

    One of the signature examples of 1970s exploitation at its most grueling. It's been over 40 years, but it still retains a few squirm inducing moments to leave its MARK on modern audiences --Cool Ass Cinema

    stands as one of the true pioneers of the exploitation movement --HorrorNews.net

In 18th century Austria a group of witch hunters torture and kill townsfolk for there money and possessions until they start to turn on themselves and the townspeople discover what they are doing.

Michael Armstrong's 1970 graphic but fascinating film isn't any easy watch. Despite not being liked apparently by any of his German crew Armstrong has managed to create a very intriguing and fairly damning (it was all done in the name of the religious state) supposed true story. The director wanted the violence to be very strong and unflinching and in this was successful, tongues are ripped out, women burned alive, men beaten to within an inch of there lives and much more, the torture scenes are graphic and bloody and many have an air of cruelty around them however this is not a negative, the picture needed these scenes as they create an atmosphere of dread and to tell its story of just what "good people" do. The writing, also done by Armstrong is excellent with the story unravelling at all the right times leading to a good mass revenge sequence, the performances are another strong point, Herbert Lom as the head of state witch hunter is excellent and the striking Reggie Nalder is very convincing, but the entire cast do a great job in their roles, apart really from Udo Kier who gives quite a blank distant performance. The gorgeous Austrian countryside gives this grim tale a much softer setting and the real torture equipment takes the violent scenes to another level. The final scenes of the townsfolk marching to their revenge is brilliant and infuriating because of what happens to certain people but is none the less effective ad thrilling.

This is a horror movie very much in the vein of movies such as Witchfinder General and Blood On Satan's Claw but it goes even further in terms of its scenes of graphic torture and violence.

The inimitable Reggie Nalder plays local witch finder Albino who pretty much rules the roost doing as he pleases, accusing various people of practising witchcraft and administering gruesome tortures and punishments, until Lord Cumberland (Herbert Lom) arrives with his assistant and protege Christian (Udo Kier) to take over.

One of the ladies on trial for witchcraft just happens to be the woman that Christian is in love with so he is torn between following his mentor and trying to save her from certain death if she is found guilty.

This love story plot element really runs secondary to a series of pretty nasty scenes involving genuine instruments of torture. People are stretched on racks and have their fingers and thumbs broken in thumb screws and, in perhaps the film's most famous scene, one woman has her tongue torn out with a pair of tongs.

Although these scenes are strong and uncomfortable to watch the film on the whole lacks the punch that Michael Reeves's far superior Witchfinder General has. For me, the acting is far better in Witchfinder General and the plot is far more involving.

Despite all the onscreen violence and carnage, there is some humour and irony to be found in Mark Of The Devil. Lord Cumberland (as in the sausage) is a good name for a character who is impotent and it is ironic that Udo Kier's character, who is drawn into the practice of dishing out punishments and supervising the various methods of torture, should be called Christian.

Set in early 18th-century Austria, the story is about a Witchfinder (Herbert Lom) and his young apprentice (Udo Kier). The two travel the countryside, terrorising people suspected of devil worship. When the Witchfinder goes too far by trying to rape a local girl, his apprentice rebels.
The overwhelming majority of the film looks very fresh and very vibrant. Clarity and depth are also very pleasing. The opening credits are a bit rough -- some wear marks and printed dirt spots are noticeable -- but then depth quickly improves. Colors are stable and always appear natural. There are no traces of problematic degraining corrections. However, in different parts of the film the grain could be slightly overexposed or underexposed. The major fluctuations can be traced back to the different elements that were accessed during the restoration, but time has also contributed to the unevenness. There are no traces of problematic sharpening adjustments. There are no serious transition issues and overall image stability is good. However, occasionally light shakiness (within the frame) can be spotted throughout the film (a good example can be seen around the 00.08.27 mark as Vanessa walks away). There are no large damage marks and debris, but some tiny scratches and flecks remain. Lastly, there are no encoding anomalies to report in this review. All in all, there is room for minor improvements, but the film has a very solid organic appearance. (Note: This is a Region A/B "locked" Blu-ray release. Therefore, you need to have a native Region-A, Region-B, or Region-Free PS3 or SA in order to access its content).
