Brimstone and Treacle is a modern gothic tale about the evil that men do and the price that must be paid to make things right. The film, a remake of a 1976 teleplay that included Denholm Elliot in its original cast as Mr. Bates, the film also included an incredibly cool soundtrack of songs by artists like The Go-Go's, The Police, Squeeze and an irreverently stylish 1930's little diddy called "Spread A Little Happiness", performed by Sting by himself.

The character that Martin Taylor is alluded to and suspected of being is The Devil. However, at no time does the script of this play state that Martin is The Devil - this is something that has been assumed by viewers and writers over the years. In fact this is one several plays that Potter wrote which feature men who suffer the *delusion* that they have supernatural powers. See more
