This film is an extremely sadistic rip-off of the excellent THE CONQUEROR WORM (1968). It was produced by one of the Jesus Franco group, Adrian Hoven. Set in Austria circa 1700, it stars Herbert Lom as Count Cumberland, a general who ferrets out witches and extracts confessions from them

using any means at his disposal. His young protege, Baron Christian von Meru (Udo Kier, ANDY WARHOL'S FRANKENSTEIN and DRACULA), eventually rebels, morally outraged by the count's various torture methods, which include ripping out tongues, burning at the stake, and using a rack and thumb screws.

This irredeemably perverse German import became something of a hit in the US when the irrepressible Hallmark Releasing Corporation packaged it with a poster showing a beautiful woman about to get her tongue cut out. Moreover, a "stomach distress bag" was appropriately offered to each customer. An

equally repulsive sequel, MARK OF THE DEVIL, PART II, followed in 1972 and is virtually identical to its predecessor.
