Bride of Satan (1974)

Q: How many witches does it take to outsmart the Devil's minion?
A: Just one! Mothers, lock up your evil sons!

When Raymond agrees to eternal service to Satan in exchange for enough money to win the love of a beautiful woman, he enters into a diabolical contract which can never be broken... or so he thinks! When the object of his affection learns of the unholy contract, she sets into motion a plan steeped in deception in order to save her lover from hellfire. Will she become the Bride of Satan?

Thanks to Karswell for sharing this fiendish fable from Witching Hour No. 49, printed in December 1974. The Horrors of it All will be posting a similar story tonight, as Devilcember begins drawing to a close...

A toast to Devilcember! And hopefully you won't start getting some of the crazy religious comments that I've been getting at THOIA this month!

I should have stopped by a month ago to say this but I voted for you on the Ms. Horror Blogosphere contest.

You'll get 'em next year.

As always, love it here.

Kitty: Between you and Karswell, I'm going to have to start scrounging for this title in my favorite comic haunts!

What a great tale. I loved the writing throughout - particularly the cool girl patter of our host.

And the story was just so clever and rather epic. I really didn't see the ending coming at all. Loved so many of the great touches, like the high goat priest that performs the ceremony, and how Tess' face changes ever so slightly after she's killed her Nanny and tossed her into the river.

And that Tess, what a woman! How many women can sniff out the sulfur of Satan’s minions and feel not fear but the eager anticipation of the hunt? – Mykal

PS: My verification word was "unbean." I can't say I'm comfortable with that. -- Mykal
