Blood Sabbath

An American soldier, a Vietnam veteran, finds himself chased by a group of women on his way home. In his attempt to outwit the chase, he falls down an embankment and loses consciousness. He is awakened by a young and beautiful girl, with whom he falls in love. But what he doesn't know is that this young woman is a soulless body possessed by a witch. Characteristic title of commercial horror cinema from the 1970s, when the cult of the devil in films was a metaphor for the evils of American society. With the presence of cult actresses such as Dyanne Thorne (“Ilsa”) and Uschi Digard (“Supervixens”), Blood Sabbath is a reclaimable tale of horror and eroticism that has left its mark on directors of our days such as Rob Zombie (“The Lords of Salem”) or Robert Eggers (“The Witch”).
