A masterpiece of Italian horror.
24 March 2006 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

A young artist named Hans is hired to do a study of a famous local landmark,a windmill that contains stone statues of notorious female monsters of the past.One day he meets a mysterious,dangerously beautiful woman at the mill.Before long,he is drawn into her clutches.Giorgio Feronni's gloriously colorful horror film "Mill of the Stone Woman" is obviously influenced by Georges Franju's horror classic "Eyes Without a Face" and Mario Bava's "I Vampiri".Admittedly the first half of the film is pretty slow and rather confusing, however there is enough eerie moments to satisfy fans of early 60's Italian Gothic horror.The location sets are truly atmospheric,for example the crumbling mill of the film's title is a decrepit place,filled haphazardly with ominous statuary and ancient religious icons.So if you are a fan of Italian horror you can't miss this gorgeously photographed gem.9 out of 10.
