4.0 out of 5 stars Superior Trash from 70s Spain, 22 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fan of Eurosleaze? Satanic shenanigans? 70s kitsch? - look no further than this stylish nightmare of a film. Plot is basic - wholesome couple (and Blackie the dog) unwisely take up an invitation from apparent old friends to visit their home - next thing they're miles from nowhere, trapped in a creepy big house (most definitely not furnished by Ikea) and the ouiji board is cracked open. This film does a lot of things well - it looks good (brilliant picture quality on the Mondo Macabre release helps a lot), it successfully evokes a claustrophobic nightmarish feel and it is by turns sexy, unsettling and plain confusing. I enjoyed it a lot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Satanic Horror, 1 Feb 2011

Plot. Two couples and an ouija board equals problems.
Film begins with scenes of nudity as cultists do their thing. Credits come on and things slow right down down after that as a couple (who are cultists) in a car attract the attention of another couple (normal) in another car. The 4 end up in a creepy house where the drinks flow and the ouija board gets pulled out. All very innocent but very soon after the horror starts.
This Spanish horror film is superb with all the nudity, gore and violence. The cultist couple are excellent in their portrayal of being normal except we know they are totally psychopathic. Dragging the normal pair into their satanic rituals is scary with a few brilliant twists with nicely tense moments in places allows us to sympathise with them.
Extras include a documentary and stills. USA Release but plays Region zero. English or Spanish language. English subtitles.

4.0 out of 5 stars Satanic euro-sleaze from J.P Simon!, 20 Mar 2012

This review is from: Satan's Blood [DVD] [1978] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
After an introduction to the film from a beardy spanish academic type who decides to give us a lecture on modern satanism we get a glimpse of a satanic ritual, mainly involving some dodgy looking old fella in a robe fondeling some young bimbette, this has very little to do with the rest of the film but certainly gives the audience a fair idea of the level the film is aiming for! We then cut to a handsome young couple Andy and ana and their dog blacky, bored they decide to head out in the car to the park to give blacky some exercise. On the way there they get pulled over by a another couple, the husband insists he knows Andy from college. Despite his skepticism Andy agrees to follow the couple to their remote house in the middle of nowhere (sensible fellow!) where he and ana join the strange couple in a go on the ouija board, followed by a sleepover and some greasy satanic sex. Soon things take a turn for the worse and the couple soon begin to realise they might possibly have made a teeny mistake heading out into the middle of nowhere with a strange couple.

A product of the liberalisation of post franco era cinema in spain, satan's blood features plenty of nudity, not that much in the way of gore but is interestingly shot and makes great use of its locations. In terms of quality its no blind dead or who can kill a child, but its certainly not as bad as some of jess francos worst output either. The producers credit goes to J.P. SIMON, who cult film fans will know best as the director of such guilty pleasures as PIECES and SLUGS. He dosent get a directors credit here but the film does at least feel like one of his so I found myself wondering if its shot under an assumed name. (though I suspect more knoledgable film fans will be happy to clarify this) At 82 minutes the film dosent outstay his welcome and while not a bona-fide classic its definately worth checking out if your a fan of euro-horror. The disc has generally good picture quality, the Katerina intro is optional (though I like her!) but theres not much else in the way of extras on the disc and the lack of an option to get the spanish audio certainly lost it a star. Overall though certainly worth a look.
