Blood on Satan's Claw (96 mins)
Stylish folk horror. When a strange old skull is unearthed in a field, evil erupts across the old English countryside, with the young’uns corrupted by a sinister satanic cult, presided over by promiscuous schoolgirl Angel Blake (Linda Hayden). Weird goings on in the attic and a bizarre hand-to-claw transformation are only the beginning. Can the mysterious Judge (Patrick Wymark) purge the village of evil?
