Great sleazy Spanish horror, 17 February 2008
Author: t-birkhead from United Kingdom

I greatly enjoyed this, my first foray into Spanish sleaze. As a sleaze film it does superbly, with a good deal of sex and nudity which is often very erotic. In fact this goes further in the sex department than a lot of exploitation films that I have seen. The film also delivers amply on creepy scenes and there is even a small amount of grisly violence. There is a feel to the film oddly like the art-house classic Last Year At Marienbad, which I am currently studying. Though Satan's Blood shares little apart from a few themes and odd style with the french classic, it is weird to see such a film echoed in this kind of cinema. My main issue was with the plotting. The film has a nice flow to it and a good sense of mounting doom. A lot of creepy stuff happens but the film never really explains what is going down. On a visual level the film is a great nightmarish trip but the actual story is kinda vague. Also, I could have done with more grue to go along with all the sex, but thats a personal preference. Still, a great film, well worth watching to all Eurotrash fans.
