The film was originally conceived as three stories that would play out separately, but all have the unearthed remains of Satan being the linking factor between them. The stories of Peter Edmonton and his mad fiance, the possessed village children, and the Judge's battle with evil were all at first suppose to take place independently. However when the script was written it was decided that the plots should be combined to create one central story. See more »

Witchcraft and diabolic possession proceeded with astonishing terror images
This eerie film is set circa 1640, when is earthed by a farmer(Barry Andrews) a weird human remains located in an British small village. Later a farming community is haunted by the demon himself. Children and adolescents being possessed by hairy demon and becoming them into a coven of witches practicing exorcisms and witchery. The teens led by a nasty young girl(Linda Hayden)are worshipping the devil,raping,and sacrificing other young people. Meantime a judge(Patrick Wymark)investigates the rare events.
The film packs gruesome images, grisly killings, thriller and intense horror sequences. Magnificent detail period is perfectly set in 17th century. Somewhat nudism at times in charge of Lynda Hayden and pagans ceremonies. Enjoyable casting by Patrick Wymark (a role ¨Witchfinder general¨-alike), a gorgeous and erotic Linda Hayden(Taste of Dracula blood), Barry Andrews(Dracula has risen from grave), Michele Dotrice(married Edward Woodward) and Tamara Ustinov(daughter of Peter Ustinov and niece of Angela Lansbury). It's produced by Tigon, usual in terror movies and richly atmospheric in Pinewood studios. The movie displays a weird and creepy score musical by Marc Williamson.Evocative and imaginative cinematography by Dick Bush,usual Hammer films(Twins of evil,Dracula 72,When dinosaurs ruled earth). The motion picture is well directed by Piers Haggard(Venom,Quatermass conclusion). The flick no for the faint-hearted, however to be liked for horror fans.
