The blue ray release in 2015 is done as a full frame transfer so much information at top and bottom of the image is seen which reveals several boom microphones in the film. The film should have been transferred 16 by 9 which would leave the booms off screen like they were intended to be. See more »
I remember this film being quite bad, when seeing it years ago. My sharp recollections were confirmed tonight. Amateur is one word that springs to mind. The acting is atrociously and unbelievably bad, especially the hammed dying scenes at the start, amongst some quite shocking violence. Satan's Blade is one of the more quieter titles from the Palace Explosive titles. The acting looks so rehearsed and sometimes robotic while using that term loosely. We have some amateur zoom in shots and the story isn't explained clearly enough. The strongest and only impactful part of the film, lies with in the first ten minutes, with some nice lesbian themes thrown in, and a sort of twist to the viewer, when those two bank robbers, remove their masks, the butch lesbian, turning on her friend for more moolah, before fate deals her a vengeful hand. It's of a faceless killer, brandishing a evil clutched knife, that obviously possesses each soul that touches it, turning them into a killing machine. That's basically the gist of the story we get from what's shallowly offered, just another failing that makes this film a stinker. There's no guessing, that the film obviously has a zero survival count at the end, for the quartet of girl lodgers, and the neighboring duo/married couple, amidst them some not so bad so performances. Satan's Blade just stinks of Amateurville, while the opening music score, and the ten minute opening are the other two things I liked about it. Try and work out, near the end, why the killer, talks in two tones of voice. Forgettable and dreadful horror.
