Description

Prior to its appearance in The Blood on Satan's Claw, the church had been used as a location in The Witches (1966).

If you've seen the film then you're probably the target audience for this and it's fun reading along waiting for all the bits you remember from the film to crop up and the novel does expand on the film in quite a few ways to give the reader a little more context. I'm not sure, but the mystery and uncertainty sometimes feels a little jarring rather than pulling you deeper in. The disparate stories included one involving a woman locked in an attic by her abusive aunt; a group of children who uncover a monstrous carcass in a field; and a man who cuts off his own hand, which is possessed by a demon. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

Le film "The Blood on Satan's Claw" - 1971 (ou la Nuit des maléfices en français) est considéré comme un classique anglais du folk-horror avec The Wicker Man (1973) et The Witchfinder General (1968).

The Devil’s Advocates range is aimed at exploring the classics of horror cinema, and the contributors are generally firmly entrenched in that world via careers in academia, journalism or through their own contributions to the literature of horror. Ce livre est donc la novélisation, par le scénariste original du film, Robert Wynne-Simmons, et magnifiquement illustré par Richard Wells, à la manière de gravures sur bois. Chapel Folding, a small British village, is turned upside down when a farmhand unearths body parts that fall into the hands of local children.

It is this utter corruption of innocence that I feel is the heart of Blood on Satan’s Claw and which gives both the film and book power. We get a chance to know the characters more and what motivated them and it all makes a lot more sense now. A marvellous companion piece to the film with the added bonus of Richard Wells’s haunting illustrations, The Blood on Satan’s Claw will have you avoiding tilling the soil in the top field for many seasons to come! Upon its theatrical release, The Blood on Satan's Claw, reviews from film critics ranged from favourable to middling.
