TitelMark of the Devil: On a Classic Exploitation Film
BeschreibungMark of the Devil: On a Classic Exploitation Film. An International Conference

Tamsweg, Austria
April 3–5, 2014

Venue: Wirtschaftskammer Lungau, Friedhofstraße 6, 5580 Tamsweg

Hosted by the University of Vienna’s Department of Theater, Film and Media Studies. Also made possible by the generous support of the Austrian Students’ Union and the Salzburg Economic Chamber.

After years of being hard to find, "Mark of the Devil" ("Hexen bis aufs Blut gequält", 1970) has become one of the most popular works of German exploitation cinema. Its unlikely evolution from notorious box-office success to cult favourite (thanks mainly to the dedication of aficionados) is still in need of analysis. The present conference aims to make a contribution to the research of this scholarly neglected chapter of European cinema. The focus of the conference naturally lies on "Mark of the Devil" and its sequel "Mark of the Devil Part II" ("Hexen – geschändet und zu Tode gequält", 1973), which shall be approached from a film studies perspective.
