‘Is he Man, Beast or both? Kane is the soldier of Satan’

The Eye of Satan is a 1988 British supernatural crime horror film directed by David Kent-Watson (Into the Darkness; G.B.H.) from a screenplay by Cliff Twemlow [as Mike Sullivan] (Moonstalker aka Predator: The Quietus; The Pike project) who also stars.

The movie also features Ginette Gray, Max Beesley Snr and Brett Sinclair.

In Manchester, Northern England, a hit-man is assigned to protect the daughter of a local gangster after her life is threatened by a rival organisation. When the hit-man is double-crossed by his employers he wreaks violent supernatural revenge…

“Keeping things moving was director David Kent-Watson, a Twemlow regular who had already directed GBH and Target: Eve Island for the Mancunian. His direction brings an air of professionalism to the film, conjuring up a tense atmosphere which permeates the movie with a palpable sense of unease and menace. Bearing in mind the minuscule budget he was working with, Kent-Watson also achieves some memorable and highly effective sequences.” Sleaze Diary
