Review

Our Score
A colourful, if confusing satanic shocker with coven leader Ernest Borgnine searching for an ancient book that will enable him to deliver a fresh batch of souls to the prince of darkness. Worth persevering through the muddled set-up for the effects-laden climax where most of the cast members are reduced to screaming, oozing slime. Also notable for the sight of Star Trek's William Shatner tied naked to a sacrificial altar, and a brief appearance from John Travolta in a tiny role.

Summary

A reincarnated former satanist vows revenge on the sinister cultists who slaughtered his entire family to get their hands on a mysterious book of spells. Horror, starring Ernest Borgnine, William Shatner, Tom Skerrit and Ida Lupino.
