LA cops Gould and Blake get in over their heads when they don't heed orders from above and go after a big crime boss. While higher ups in the police department want the cop duo to just ... See full summary »
Shot in thirty-three days. The cast and crew had only one day off during the shooting of this film. See more »
The blue ray release in 2015 is done as a full frame transfer so much information at top and bottom of the image is seen which reveals several boom microphones in the film. The film should have been transferred 16 by 9 which would leave the booms off screen like they were intended to be. See more »
I was in Satans Blade and lived to tell about it|!!!
Well I saw the film...no wait I was in the film...Well wait again ..I "starred" in the film. Yes 25 years later the severely impaled "Tony" (Tom B) lives to tell about his tale.
First of all. No illusions here then or now. The film is absolutely one of the worst ever made. LOL. From the moment I got on set in Big Bear I knew the film was doomed. The only thing that surprised me is why they shot in 35mm when 16mm would have been much less expensive affording more funding for special efx. I thought if they were going to make an exploitation film there should be blood blood blood, No they did not cut out the blood ...there was none. The rental Police car had a blown transmission (thanks to the guys who picked it up in LA and screamed up BIg Bear Mountain lights a flashing) so that beast had to be pushed scene to scene by the grips some of whom may have given up their younger sisters to be on a 35mm film shoot.
OK There was never any finished script. Nor any appreciable direction for the "back story." The filler between killings. The drunk scene was totally improved as a way to get to the girls cabin. (The Jack was real, the acting not, go figure).
We were handed daily pages of dialog to shoot that day. We never knew what was coming next or what just happened! LOL, But we had the time of our lives up there as it was a 6 week long continuous party. And for that I am glad to have participated.
I myself walked out of the "premiere" showing in San Diego embarrassed to the max . The only saving grace was that if the film was as bad as I thought it was no one would see it.
Yet 25 years later some are still writing about it here LOL. That I would have NEVER predicted. Well there's the phone......MAy be Scott looking to shoot the sequel......oh thats right I died.
