The Reviews for Mark of the Devil (1970) 1080p

Gory, Gross... But Was Lacking SomethingReviewed bygavin6942Vote: 6/10

An allegedly true tale of Austrian witchcraft trials... we follow one accused witch over the course of a few days as she tries to convince her captor she's innocent.

This film is considered shocking and disturbing and is still banned in various countries (including its native Germany). I watched the 96 minute unedited version, and I think the film should be banned no longer. The gore is there. Witches burned alive, one has her tongue ripped out, and another scene that made me physically ill showed a finger in a vise. But overall, I think worse films have been made and are shown worldwide ("Cannibal Ferox", "Saw"... and some might include "Hostel").

There was also some nudity, though surprisingly less than one would expect. Many nude scenes were films at angles so the nudity was never really shown. Sure, you can argue "this was 1970, they didn't have nudity in films back then"... but I saw "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls", so don't blow smoke up my bottom. Show me some bodacious babes and chiseled men! The main actress of this film was surprisingly attractive, a rarity in 1970s films in my opinion.

The plot was fairly decent. The main character, Vanessa Bendikt, falls for Udo Kier, the apprentice of the local witch judge. Kier, a horror legend, is very young in this movie and has yet to acquire the wrinkled "creepy German guy" face I know him for... but those ice eyes are unmistakable. Vanessa is accused of witchcraft after refusing to sleep with the hideous witch hunter, and Udo Kier must choose between his love for this woman and the loyalty to his master.

In love after only a day or two, you say? Ludicrous! Maybe, but if you hear them giggling and listen to the music played in the background, you would agree they are in love... it's like the bicycle scene from "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" where Burt Bacharach is singing "Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head". It's so cliché, but works for a reason I will never understand.

I would not consider this a great movie... not by horror standards or even by movie standards in general. But I would call it a classic, and maybe even a cult film. Heck, Rob Zombie even took a sample from it (the line "the devil is in all of you"), so obviously at least a few of our modern horror masters have been inspired. Maybe you'll get something out of it I didn't.

Why all the hype?Reviewed byflickloverVote: 3/10

Up until a few days ago I had never seen or even heard about this film. Lately, I have been interested in watching horror films. I don't consider myself an avid fan of the genre but was interested in seeing some older acclaimed films. I watched a documentary on horror films and MARK OF THE DEVIL was pointed out as a film that was controversial when it came out in 1970. It was marketed as a film so shocking that people were given barf bags in theater when watching. So hey, I set out to find a copy and see what all the fuss was about.

When I finally got to watch the film on Shudder, I was expecting to be at least disturbed by what I was viewing. Well I was, but for the wrong reason. The film is about the religious hysteria in the 18th century surrounding the accusations against women that they were witches. And the horrible torture that they had to endure in order to have them confess. The subject matter is certainly interesting from a historical perspective. This film shows the torture in pretty graphic detail but nearly as bad as I thought it would be. The problem I have is that the tone of the film is all wrong. Maybe it's because of the horrible dub in English was so bad that I thought the performances were horrible. The performances were very over the top and campy. The violence depicted is certainly not presented in a fun way but what happens in between the torture scenes is so uninvolving that the violence loses it's shock value. I get that it was made in 1970 and that it might have been shocking at the time. I didn't care much for what was going on so it just seemed that the filmmakers were just filling time between torture scenes. So for me the film didn't work on any level. It seems that they came up with a clever marketing angle to portray the film as being more than it was. I felt that 90 minutes of my life were wasted.

Demons, Women and InquisitorsReviewed byEdgar Soberon TorchiaVote: 5/10

Neither bad nor plausible work, with no discernible motivation than to make a profit from the outburst of raw emotions and epidermis of the 1970s, with the fall of those moral codes that every now and then emerge in the media industry. It follows the line of ?Witchfinder General? but without the indispensable amount of rigour in that historical drama by Michael Reeves (who was supposed to make this one but died too young), to move it from low-income neighborhood to big city respectability, so to speak... The following year Ken Russell would strike gold with a new re-telling of the case of the inquisitors, devils and nuns of Loudon (which was treated as early as 1921 in ?H?x?n? and later in 1961 in ?Mother Joanna of the Angels?). Both Reeves and Russell had larger budgets, but all three movies are tales without hope, in which love and innocence are destroyed. Three aspects most negatively affect this motion picture, in my opinion. First, Michael Holm's Euro-pop score is too contemporary, obtrusive and rather ugly. Second, we have two actors with no chemistry unconvincingly enacting a romance (with bad dialogues, true, but Udo Kier's face is as blank as usual, and Olivera Katarina looks like his aunt). Last, the film editor had no sense of rhythm, sometimes not knowing when and what to cut (like the drops of water that fall on the head of a torture victim). There were some jaw dropping, eye opening exploitation films at the time, a few became classics, but not this one. Compared to them, this movie is just routine.
