Product Description

From the Contributor

Liner Note Excerpt: "As with any good Gothic tale, the plot of Veil of Blood – presented on this special edition Retro-Shock-O-Rama Cinema DVD under its British release title, The Devil’s Plaything (the initial U.S. release title was Plaything of the Devil) – is as murky as its settings. A pair of young women is summoned to remote Castle Varga, which they are told they stand to inherit from a late aunt. By a certain coincidence, a brother and sister – Peter and Julia Malenka – also seek shelter within the castle, their car having wrecked not far from its crumbling battlements. It quickly becomes apparent, however, that the castle’s caretakers – stern, emotionless women dressed entirely in black – are members of a Stygian cult who engage in ritual dances and strange orgies in the castle’s dungeon...."

HASH(0xa3779420) out of 5 stars Fun, maybe not for the whole family May 4 2007
By R. Schaffer - Published on
Format: DVD
Joe Sarno was an early director of erotic films who always added a bit of psychological depth to his tales, as well as hints of perverse sex (incest is a favored topic in many of his works). We're not talking Ingmar Bergman here, but unlike many other grindhouse directors, Joe's films are elaborately plotted, well acted, and nicely shot. No blurry out of frame compositions here. Devil's Playthings exhibit many of these traits. The vampirism is left in a gray area, as we are never sure if the Countess is a real vampire, or simply acting out the influences of the cult who believe they have reincarnated her. There is implied brother/sister incest, and true to the period, writhing females painted with mystic symbols. Where are these cults, anyway? Sign me up! The film is soft core, but exudes an erotic throb, and the gals are swell. The head of the cult is one of those women who is creepily sexy. If you're looking for an offbeat piece of retro-erotica, this film will do nicely. And try other Joe Sarno works, they don't disappoint.

HASH(0xa3779828) out of 5 stars TYPICAL 70'S DRIVE-IN MOVIE June 17 2011
By The Movie Guy - Published on
Format: DVD
This is a female vampire story. The historical background is similar to Vlad the Impaler, except it involves a baroness whose spirit is kept alive at this castle. In the basement of the castle, topless women in long loin cloths perform rituals to bongo music. Some young girls arrive at the castle unaware of the rituals. They are enticed to come to the basement through the enchanting bongo music. Here they get naked and have sex. No silicon. The vampire aspect was kept to a minimum.

Nudity, minor full frontal nudity, sex, lesbian sex, female masturbation. While this sounds pornographic, it is actually less graphic than today's soft core.

HASH(0xa37798a0) out of 5 stars Poor copy March 16 2014

Boobies, sex spells, girl-girl action - what's not to like? The transfer process was horrible. Every couple of minutes the image gets blown out and pixelated. It doesn't totally ruin the movie, but it is very distracting.
