Once indexed &amp even confiscated Tonight a horror milestone will be shown uncut on TV that every film fan should know — cinema news

New Line Cinema

Sam Raimi is known for his » Spider-Man » trilogy, » Doctor Strange 2 » or the » The Amazing World of Oz » remake. But whether he’s immersed himself in the world of Marvel’s superheroes or in a Disney fairy tale, each of his films is filled with moments in which the cult director celebrates his origins in the horror genre. And so Raimi fans should still be pretty much in agreement today: If there is a film that you should definitely have seen, then it is “ Dance of the Devil ”.

The film was released uncut in cinemas and on VHS in Germany in 1984, but it soon called the moral guardians into action and as a result even tightened the local youth protection laws. The uncut version of «Tanz der Teufel» not only ended up on the index, but was also confiscated and had a particularly difficult time in this country for many, many years.

A re-examination finally followed in 2016, with astonishing results: not only was the confiscation and, a little later, the indexing lifted. After more than three decades, the FSK gave the green light and released the film unabridged even from the age of 16 (!)! If you were once even forced to withdraw the film because of its escalating depictions of violence, you don’t even have to be of legal age to enjoy the horror classic.

Today, the film can not only be sold in its entirety, but also shown on local television programs from 10 p.m. — just like today or tomorrow: Because Kabel1 is showing «Tanz der Teufel» on the night of June 1st to 2nd, 2022 from 12:35 a.m. completely unabridged. But if you don’t want to spend half the night doing it, you can now get the film for little money on DVD, Blu-ray and 4K Blu-ray as well as video-on-demand — uncut, of course:

» «Tanz der Teufel» DVD at Amazon *
» «Tanz der Teufel» Blu-ray at Amazon *
» «Tanz der Teufel» 4K Blu-ray at Amazon *
» «Tanz der Teufel» at Amazon Prime Video *

This is «Dance of the Devils»

Based on his 1978 short film Within The Woods, three years later Sam Raimi finally raised enough money to launch his feature-length diabolical demon adventure. Incidentally, “enough” in this case means 375,000 dollars – an almost measly sum, with “Tanz der Teufel” being considered a low-budget production even then (for comparison: the horror films “ Halloween II ” and “ American Werewolf ”, which were released in the same year ‘ cost $2.5 and $5.8 million, respectively).

And yet: With exuberant special effects and stop-motion animations, he made it the ultimate cult classic that lives from a uniquely dark horror-comedy mix that hardly anyone else can pull off besides Sam Raimi.

If you just can’t get enough of that, you should definitely see the sequels » Tang der Teufel 2 » and » Army of Darkness » as well as the offshoot series » Ash Vs. Evil Dead » and the supernatural horror fun » Drag Me To Hell «. — and is currently getting the full load of Raimi in the aforementioned «Doctor Strange 2» in the cinema (including the wonderful «Tanz der Teufel» allusion!).

And for everyone who only knows Sam Raimi’s cult film from hearsay, the plot again briefly: Ash ( Bruce Campbell ) and his friends treat themselves to a few days off in nature and spend a few days in a secluded hut in the woods, where they briefly however, make a mysterious discovery after their arrival.

In the basement of the house they find a tape recorder and a strange book which they examine curiously. The problem is that the writing contains formulas for summoning dark powers — and thanks to Ash and Co., they are already on their way to the earthly realm to literally make their life hell…
