Satan's Blood: excellent Spanish Satanic horror
30 December 2006 | by FieCrierSee all my reviews

Not sure how, but it slipped my mind that I'd seen this before, though it started coming back to me as I was watching.

After an opening scene of a black mass, Andy and his four months pregnant wife Ana (who shows no visible signs of being pregnant) are out for a drive with their dog Blackie, when they come across a couple in another car who claims to know Andy. He doesn't remember the guy from school, and thinks some of the other things the man says are wrong (Last Year in Marienbad?), but they agree to join them for a drink at their house. The dog doesn't like the couple, and Andy has second thoughts when the drive to the house turns out to be over an hour over dirt roads in the middle of nowhere, but they do enter the couple's large gated estate. Once there, various things conspire against them leaving....

Really well made sleaze/satanic horror. As is said in the novel The Crying of Lot 49, "True pornography is given us by vastly patient professionals."

The documentary on satanism and satanic horror included on Mondo Macabro's DVD is well worth watching.
