Mark of the Devil

Mark of the Devil

Directed by Michael Armstrong

In this gothic horror set in 18th century Austria, witchfinder Lord Cumberland (Herbert Lom) and his apprentice Christian von Meruh (Udo Kier) travel the countryside tracking down those they suspect of devil worship, issuing severe punishments and toture to anyone deviating from God's path. When rival witchfinder, Albino (Reggie Nalder) is murdered by Lord Cumberland, Christian loses faith in his mentor and begins to question the true motive behind the church’s witch trials. An unflinching look at religious persecution, MARK OF THE DEVIL explores the hypocrisy of Christianity challenging ideas of morality and religion in this depraved tale. Contains violence and gore.

A witchfinder questions his duties in this stark, unsettling 18th-century set horror.

Cast: Udo Kier, Herbert Lom, Olivera Katarina

In spite of being known as just another gore exploitation flick, the movie is pretty good. The music, acting, story, etc. There was a drama in the movie, which I really liked. It really got to me how people were treated so badly in the name of the Church... and the ending was sad, honestly.

Fantastic. More of a drama than a horror movie. Lots of good looking women having a not so good time.
