Mark of the Devil [1971]

Mark of the Devil [1971]
Positively The Most Horrifying Film Ever Made!
 
Banned in many countries!  - Udo Kier is a witch hunter apprentice to Herbert Lom. Udo believes strongly in his mentor and in the ways of the church but loses faith when he catches Lom strangle a man to death for calling him impotent. Kier begins to see for himself that the witch trials are nothing but a scam of the church to seduce women, rob people of their land, money, and other personal belongings. in the end, the towns people revolt, Herbert Llom escapes and poor Udo is tortured to death by the towns people with the his own devices from the dungeon.  - Rated 'V' for violence - this film contains very strong graphic torture!

Thoughts: Okay witches and people against the church wrapped up in medieval tortures and what does that bring... one of the most disturbing films I have seen in sometime. Now keeping this in mind it's release is in the early 1970's which makes the gore more cartoon-ish and blood that resembles red paint. It also based on real cases of torture told in more a dramatic/gore form, I would watch this again. It is not for the squeamish or those on an empty stomach, I would recommend for those who enjoy a classic horror film.

No Video... to messed up, I will give some images I found of people you would know and creepy faces you will see.
