A satanist cult leader is burnt alive by the local church. He vows to come back to hunt down and enslave every descendant of his congregation, by the power of the book of blood contracts, in which they sold their souls to the devil.
I remember staying up late and watching this show in syndication on WGN-TV in the late 1980's. It was a fascinating series of almost feature-length suspense stories which were written mostly by Brian Clemens and starred a mostly British cast. It was while watching this show that I "discovered" many of my now favorite actors, including Pamela Franklin, Judy Geeson, Hayley Mills, Patrick Magee, Jeremy Brett, Donna Mills, Ian Hendry, Carol Lynley, and Carroll Baker. Sadly though, the series seems to have all but vanished, as it no longer appears in syndication and the selected few episodes that were released to videotape have long gone out-of-print. It would be utterly fantastic if they would release all of the episodes to DVD!
