Trivia

In a taped radio interview, Massimo Pupillo said that Barbara Steele was difficult to work with for the first three or four days, acting like horror films were beneath her. He chewed her out one day in front of cast and crew. After that, he said, she was wonderful to work with. See more »

Goofs

The town clerk keeps referring to Jeronimus Hauff as having died on May 2nd (at least in the English dub). However, the closeup of Hauff's tombstone gives the date as "2-4", which in European notation is April 2nd. See more »

Enjoyable Italian Gothic chiller
5 May 2013 | by Red-BarracudaSee all my reviews

Medieval plague victims return from the dead to terrorise a group of people who were enemies of a dead man with expertise in the occult.

This is another in the cycle of Italian Gothic horror films that were especially popular in the 60's. It stars the queen of Italian horror from this period, Barbara Steele. She was hardly a scream queen however. She was rarely the one doing the screaming, she was usually the aggressor. In this movie she again is no victim and like always she provides some real class to proceedings. The story itself is fairly standard stuff, with nothing out of the ordinary. It's really pretty decent stuff though if you have an appreciation for horror films with a Gothic atmosphere. There are plenty of well used locations and the mood is effective enough. I enjoyed it and recommend it to fans of Italian Gothic.
