The Blood on Satan's Claw (1971)

In 17th century England the children of a village slowly convert into a coven of devil worshipers.

Fairly successful period horror with a few interesting scenes, but marred by an overladen and confusing plot.

Halliwell (no star): "Moderately frightening, rather silly but at least original period horror comic."

Maltin**: "Richly atmospheric horror film with erotic undertones, somewhat gruesome at times."

Michael Weldon/Psychotronic: "An effective, serious witchcraft thriller..."
