Product Description

Terror, sex and Satanic rituals are on a one-way ride to Hell in Satan's Blood, one of the most horrific and sexiest thrillers from Spain! In this occult chiller, Andy and Anna are a bored couple who decide to go for a drive in the country. On the way, they meet another couple who claim to know them from many years before. Despite their uncertainty, Andy and Anna agree to visit the mysterious couple's country house and end up staying the night.


A genuinely creepy Satanic horror flick. Plenty of sleaze and full frontal nudity -- Danse Macabre

Fantastic audio/video quality,interesting and complimentary extra features ... Euro-cult fans will want to snap this one up a.s.a.p. --DVD Maniacs

I hate to admit it, but the main reason I bought this movie is because of the cool art on the DVD case. But I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. Satan's Blood begins with a scene that can be described as pure exploitation. The opening scene is of a Black Mass. The room is decorated with a huge pentagram on a wall, and black candles light the room. A priest bows before the pentagram, and attends to a woman who has just been brought into the room. She is in a white dress, and everyone else are wearing black ceremonial robes. After a display of full-frontal female nudity, the priest stabs the woman in the back. But I can only assume he stabbed her, because it doesn't actually look like he stabs her. It looks like he slid the dagger underneath her back WITHOUT stabbing her. There are several other stabbings in the movie, and none of them look realistic. Regardless, it's safe to assume the woman was an unwilling human sacrifice. My other complaint about this scene is that the woman doesn't seem to mind being raped. Is a greater degree of realism too much to ask for from the filmmakers?

We are then introduced to the two main characters, Andres and Ana (Andy and Anna in the dubbed version), and their dog Blackie. Ana is four months pregnant. While driving around town they are stopped by another couple, Bruno and Berta (Bruno and Mary in the dubbed version). Bruno claims to have known Andres back in college, but Andres can't recall ever seeing him. Regardless, Andres and Ana agree to go to the mysterious couple's huge country house. Shortly after arriving, Blackie is barking loudly at a freezer, which leads the viewer to think the mysterious couple are hiding something in the freezer - especially when Berta menacingly says "Silence!" to Blackie, and he immediately falls silent.

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Satan's Blood (1977) aka Escalofrío is an interesting, low budget shocker more so because it was one of the first Spanish produced films to feature gratuitous scenes of nekkidness, something not heard of in Spanish cinema due to the strict censorship laws imposed on the film industry, which changed dramatically after the death of General Franco in 1975 (up until the 1970s it was more acceptable to have gallons of gore than it was a nekkid female form in a movie). Produced and co-directed by Juan Piquer Simón (Monster Island, Pieces, The Pod People), the film features a relatively small cast including Ángel Aranda (Planet of the Vampires), Sandra Alberti (What's a Girl Like You Doing in a Place Like This?), Mariana Karr, and José María Guillén.

The film begins with a black mass ritual, one featuring a group of men, clad in dark robes, carrying a young woman into a room and placing her on an alter before an older man. The older man proceeds to get all hands on with the woman, stripping her clothes off and rubbing his grubby mitts all over her supple, young form...while the rest of the men watch...lovely...cut to the credits...after the credits we meet a young couple named Anna and Andy, who live in the city. The couple are trying to decide what to do on their Saturday, settling on taking the dog for a walk, which segue ways into a doofy montage filled with all sorts of activity (even including a trip to the cinema, which just happens to be showing the original Star Wars, according to the marquee). Anyway, while returning home, the couple runs into another couple, named Bruno and Mary, and Bruno claims to have gone to school with Andy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Blood is weaker than water. September 13, 2010
I had heard mixed things about this film, but due to its age I was willing to give it a shot and see how bad it was compared to today's current crop of torture flicks that pass for horror.

Unlike many films from overseas, this one lets you watch it in English or its orginal language, and both work well without any serious flaws. This is a serious plus for most Americans, as the films often get a poor translation, and even worse subtitles for some reason.

The movie is slow to get moving, giving the impression of a serious plot. Even after my third time watching it, I still cannot grasp much more than a reason for full frontal nudity, a few minor deaths (and a graphic scene where a couple's dog is butchered)and then a subplot about a whole area of Satan (?) worshipers who turn up everywhere. Oddly, it reminded me of my home town, where everyone was conncected to someone else for some perverted reason (and not just in a relgious cult way either).

This movie will give you a hint of satanism, male and female nudity, some soft sex scenes, and a curiosity about what is going on, but it isn't close to what most expect in a movie like this. True, it is more factual in nature, what you truly find in some areas, but it lacks the massive special effects and shocking twists Americans have come to love and expect. But, it is a film that remembers the 1970s Satanism (US) fondly, with all the traces of the 1960s and none of the 1980s slasher stuff. It isn't bad, but many will find it tame and long for more blood, gore, and cheap thrills.
