  • Commentary features director Michael Armstrong.
  • "Performing God's Work" (34:35, HD) is an interview with director Michael Armstrong, who was originally aiming to make a movie with Paramount before it fell apart, hastily taking a job in Germany to keep his career going. Facing rough material in "Mark of the Devil," Armstrong was determined to make changes, shaping the material to his sensibility while still retaining the violence of the era. Getting into battles with the producers, Armstrong eventually left the film, but he shot the feature in a way where editing could only follow his lead. The German shooting experience is detailed, along with character and content.
  • "The Devil's Apprentice" (19:26, HD) is an interview with Udo Kier, who was working in England in the 1960s, eventually finding his way into acting, which gave him the attention he craved. Joining "Mark of the Devil," Keir offers his thoughts on co-star Herbert Lom and director Michael Armstrong, and he recalls the release experience, enjoying the marketing push for the movie. The interviewee celebrates the educational value of the picture, and details the premiere event.
  • "Words of the Devil" (14:32, HD) is listed as "a brief guide to the screenplays of Michael Armstrong with lecturer and film historian Dr. Adrian Smith."
