Typical TV fare from the eco-friendly '70s, 18 October 2014

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Sent to a small town in rural Germany to buy up land for a corporate conglomerate, a surveyor is warned by the locals not to disturb "the devil's bed"...

In the eco-friendly '70s, you know what happens when someone tries to "pave paradise and put up a parking lot" but this time there's a twist when the Devil is sold to the highest bidder. The witch standing in the way of satanic progress is played by Florinda Bolkan (in a role similar to the one she had in DON'T TORTURE A DUCKLING) and both she and Law get naked but there's no frontal for gangly government gofer John Phillip Law which was no skin off my arse. I liked the premise but the body count could have been higher and if it wasn't for the nudity, I'd call it a "typical TV movie" from that era.
