Paul Martin (Kier) is a paranoid novelist who rents out a secluded cottage in the British countryside in order to complete his new book, a pretentious sex romp. He has split with his girlfriend Suzanne (Richmond) and is having problems writing his book. To do the typing for him, he employs a secretary, Linda Hindstatt (Hayden), whom he meets at the railway station. A couple of youths at the railway station intimidate Linda, prompting Paul to give them a battering. Afterwards, Linda takes a walk in a field where she is raped by the youths. As a result, she shoots them both dead. Meanwhile, Paul keeps having nightmares and all his advances on Linda are rejected. He gets Suzanne to come back and she begins having sex with Linda. Paul then crashes into a river, while Suzanne is murdered in the bathtub and everything erupts into a pandemonium of violence.

The current UK version rated 18 has 3 cuts- most of a rape scene, all of Suzanne’s death, and the shot of her dead in the shower (there was plenty of blood on her naked body so cuts were required). There is 51s cut in total.

In a documentary on the DVD of Blood on Satan’s Claw Hayden says that this is the only movie she regrets making and was not the film she had made originally.
