80s slasher flick Satan's Blade on Blu-ray & DVD in July

21 June 2016

One of the lesser known entries in the annals of the ’80s slasher film, Satan’s Blade is an eerie slice of US regional terror ripe for rediscovery by horror fans.

Arriving at a snow-capped mountain resort, a group of youngsters are met by the news that a double murder has taken place there the previous night. Despite this grisly revelation, they decide to stay on, unaware of the knife-wielding figure stalking the wintry landscape... Could the local legend about a vengeful mountain man have some truth to it?

Shot in Big Bear, California in 1980 but not released until 1984, L. Scott Castillo, Jr.’s Satan’s Blade succeeds in establishing a thoroughly creepy atmosphere – helped in no small part by a freakish nightmare sequence that’s sure to inspire more than a few sleepless nights.
