MARK OF THE DEVIL (R)
HALLMARK RELEASING (1970)
Starring: Herbert Lom, Udo Keir, Olivera Vuco, Reggie Nalder, Herbert Fux & more.
Wow! This Belgium film was quite intense. It takes place in the olden days when Christianity ruled
the world. The people of this town & especially the church & town leaders are on a hunt for
witches. Anyone can accuse anyone of being a witch & they are tortured until they confess or die.
Many people were torture for real in history of these means. They would whip, burn, puncture,
beat even rape these victims. Once they were convinced they were witches they were burned alive in
the town square. This is a very disturbing film, but is one that is worth watching more than once.
When this film was released in the theater they would hand out barf bags!!!
