Here's one for you admirers of UK-bred terror: Piers Haggard's cult horror thriller BLOOD ON SATAN'S CLAW (1971), starring Patrick Wymark, Linda Hayden, Barry Andrews, will be issued on Blu-ray from British distributors Odeon Entertainment. The preliminary release date set by the distributors is April 22nd.
In a 17th-Century English village, a ploughman discovers the skeletal remains of a demonic creature. Soon after the remains are discovered, they go missing again, which hampers the investigations of the local judge (Patrick Wymark). Meanwhile, strange events are beginning to occur in the village: a young woman inexplicably goes insane and her fiance is later found cutting off his own hand, believing it to have turned into a hideous claw. Then a cult of teenage devil-worshippers emerges, led by beautiful temptress Angel Blake (Linda Hayden), which involves children performing blood sacrifices to bring the skeletal demon back to life...
