I am watching it now; the whole movie is available on YouTube
I didn't make it through last night. I'll have to pick it up where I left off.
I first heard about this movie when I was a kid. Channel 43, from Lorain, usually showed horror movies at 8 o'clock on Saturday nights and The Blood on Satan's Claw was on once or twice a year (along with Don Sharp's Curse of the Fly, the Ishiro Honda's War of the Gargantuas). Of course, since this was in the days of one television per household, we didn't watch many of these movies. Curiously, Dad made an exception for Curse of the Fly.
The Blood on Satan's Claw takes place in rural, 17th century England. The tone is set early in the film when the Judge, played with extreme pomposity by Patrick Wymark, declares "Witchcraft is dead and discredited." He quickly changes his mind when a series of bizarre and unholy events sweep through the shire.

Sometimes the pacing is a little slow, The Blood on Satan's Claw is an unusual and entertaining horror film.
