The Alfred Hitchcock Hour - The Sign of Satan

(Redirected from The Sign of Satan)


"The Sign of Satan" was originally broadcast on 08/May/1964 as part of the second season of The Alfred Hitchcock Hour.


Karl Jorla is a European horror movie star who is contracted by a Hollywood studio to appear in his first American film. The film's producers watch a demo movie of Jorla as the leader of a satanic cult, and feel he is perfect for their new film. After he comes to America, Jorla grows worried that real satanists are after him. He thinks they could kill him for allowing his demo film to be shown. Jorla gets around the clock protection by the studio, but is almost killed anyway. He persuades the studio to allow him to stay at a secret location unknown to anyone but him. The studio agrees, but he doesn't show up for the first day of filming. The director begins to film scenes around him, until Jorla suddenly appears on the set. He moans an address in Topanga Canyon and disappears. Police are called and everyone goes to the address, where they find Jorla beaten to death. What is more mysterious is that Jorla has been dead for three days and could not have come to the movie set to give the address. (TV.com)
