Seventeenth-century England, and a plough uncovers a grisly skull in the furrows of a farmer's field. The skull disappears, but its malefic influence begins to work in insidious ways upon the nearby village of Hexbridge. First, the cows stop milking and the fruit turns rotten on the trees. Then, an insolent ungodliness takes hold of the local children, mysterious fur patches appear on limbs and people start disappearing....
Something evil is stirring in the woods. Something that is corrupting the village youth, who retreat to the woodland deeps to play their pernicious games. Hysteria spreads as it becomes clear that the devil has come to Hexbridge, to incarnate himself on earth. Can the villagers, led by the Squire Middleton (Mark Gatiss) and Reverend Fallowfield (Reece Shearsmith), prevent the devil gaining human form?
This digital audio exclusive stars Mark Gatiss and Reece Shearsmith, alongside the original film's Angel Blake, Linda Hayden. Gatiss and Shearsmith are both huge fans of the original film, even recording a commentary for the DVD release.
An Audible Original drama adapted from the original screenplay by horror writer Mark Morris, Blood on Satan's Claw stars Mark Gatiss (Sherlock, Doctor Who, The League of Gentlemen), Reece Shearsmith (The League of Gentlemen), Alice Lowe (Sightseers, Prevenge), John Heffernan (Ripper Street, Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell), Ralph Ineson (The Witch, The Office), Thomas Turgoose (This Is England), Rebecca Ryan (Shameless) and Philip Hill-Pearson (Good Cop).

It was great but
This was a wonderful story. The different characters and sound effects it was perfect. If I had any complaints it would be the bit of confusion I had without the narrative like where they were, at times I wondered who was speaking. Nonetheless I loved it. It was great I just wish it were longer.

Satanic Horror at it's best!
This audio adaptation of Blood on Satan's Claw is as enjoyable to listen to as the film was to watch. This is a creepy tale that begins in the furrows of a ploughed field and leads to demonic possession of school children in a rural 17th Century English village, with plenty of supernatural happenings along the way. The acting and sound production are top notch and Blood on Satan's Claw is probably best listened to with the lights on, as this is a story dripping with a creepy macabre atmosphere.
This is an audio drama and not a narrated audiobook but the performances from the whole cast are superb and they bring this good old fashioned horror tale to life in this well produced 'Audible Original' dramatisation.
Blood on Satan's Claw is highly recommended for anyone who likes a scary horror story at bedtime.

Folk Horror at it's best. A stellar adaptation.
What an absolute treat. Superbly written, acted and produced with imaginative use of audio effects.
Bafflegab Productions are now on my radar permanently. Hard to believe something of this standard was crowd funded. Hopelly they will start turning a profit. Looking forward to owning a CD copy in June

The production, sound effects and atmospheric music is first class and this has a great cast of well known performers. (I particularly enjoyed Ralph Ineson who must be the Northiest Northern man to ever grace the sound waves). The story is fairly bog standard with innocent god-fearing folk being terrorised by rampant demon driven female sexuality, but there is some genuine and chilling horror, especially in the skin removal scenes. Overall this is an entertaining way to pass a couple of hours but I would not include this in my list of memorable stories.
