Blood on Satan's Claw

Released in the UK as Satan's Skin this seriously creepy British feature (1970) was produced by Tigon Films, a pretender to the Hammer throne in the late 60s. A young farmer discovers the half-rotten corpse of an unknown beast, a worm sliding across its one glassy eye, and before long the village reverend begins to lose control of his class to a blond nymphet (Linda Hayden) who schools her friends in the black arts. The corrupted children grow patches of thick black fur on their bodies, an unnerving pubic reference that feeds into the movie's strong current of paganistic sexuality. Directed by Piers Haggard, this was obviously shot on the cheap, but like Robin Hardy's 1973 classic The Wicker Man it taps into a vast reservoir of puritan fear. 93 min.
