Cheap, oddly acted misfire
1 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

Low budget English film set in the 18th century about a Satanist brought back to life when the blood of a virgin drops onto his tomb. As he sets about trying to find a willing virgin to spend an eternity in Hell thus ending his damnation (I don't understand it either) two lovers, the daughter of a rich nobleman and a young man who is slowly buying up the land in the area, try to find away to be together.

Shot on the cheap this film looks more like a dress up party than reality. It doesn't help that the two lovers are probably ten years too old for their roles. Still the film has a certain amount of charm thanks to a rather bizarre performance by Mike Raven who says his lines with often odd inflections. This isn't to say its a good film, its really not but those who like interesting misfires should look for this film. Those who don't want to see a misfire should stay away.

(I have an odd relationship with the film in that I had several images from the film burned into my head since the mid 1970's when to pictures from the film appeared in a then history of current horror films.The haunting image of two horsemen by a gallows and pictures of Raven during the sacrificial ceremony squeezing the entrails of a young woman into a cup stayed with me for the last 30 years as iconic images that belonged to some movie somewhere-which I've only just discovered)
