Chronicle Season Two: Episode Two – Mark of the Devil

S02E02

Welcome back to another season of Chronicle Podcast (An Almanac of Old World Horrors), this is season 2 episode 2.

This is a podcast dedicated to discussing European Horror Cinema only and is the brainchild of podcaster Duncan McLeish (The Podcast Under the Stairs). Each season will run for 6 episodes and drop every two weeks with season 2 looking exclusively at European Horror Cinema through its Witches.

With an emphasis on giving you an insight into some of the weird and wonderful stories behind the movies, we continue this new seasons journey with Mark of the Devil (1970). Where Witchfinder General marked a move away from the campy over the top theatrics of Hammer Horror & Amicus Productions for a darker more sadistic feel, Mark of the Devil raised the bar of shock to audiences who didn’t know whether or not they themselves were ready for it.

Chronicle Podcast was researched, written, recorded and produced by me for you!!

Join me next time to look at The Devils (1971).
