Blood on Satan’s Claw18
In 18th century England, a farmer unearths the corpse of a terrible beast. This chilling discovery sends the villagers into a suspicious frenzy – have they been cursed by a demon or is there a form of mass delusion at play? Considered one of a holy trinity alongside The Wicker Man and Witchfinder General, Piers Haggard’s folk-horror is a uniquely English example of the dual image of witchcraft: an emblem of feminine power, but also one that men will go to any lengths to resist and destroy.
‘Some fine performances, superb cinematography and a genuinely nasty streak make this Brit-horror stand out from its contemporaries’
‘It’s visually beautiful, too, with an unusual but effective use of in-camera framing, and the score by Mark Wilkinson is creepy and immersive.’

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
