Arrow Films to Bring 'Mark of the Devil' to Blu-Ray


One of the greats of the 70's exploitation genre is finally getting a proper U.S. Blu-Ray and DVD release. The good folks over at Arrow Films are releasing the classic film Mark of the Devil in the U.S. on March the 17th.You can pre-order it at Amazon.

"Once proclaimed as "positively the most horrifying film ever made," Mark of the Devil arrives in a director-approved edition featuring a new restoration of the feature. A bloody and brutal critique of religious corruption, Mark of the Devil sees horror icon Udo Kier (Flesh for Frankenstein, Suspiria) play a witch finder's apprentice whose faith in his master (Herbert Lom) becomes severely tested when they settle in an Austrian village. Presided over by the sadistic Albino (a memorably nasty turn from Reggie Nalder), the film presents its morality not so much in shades of grey as shades of black. Written and directed by Michael Armstrong, who would later pen Eskimo Nell, The Black Panther and House of the Long Shadows, this classic shocker has lost none of its power over the years."
