A Visual Treat
5 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie exemplified the best of the era. It was visually stunning from the cemetery, to the house, to the disfigured wife.

The story also sucks you in from the start. It is about a man who murders his wife and her ghost seeks revenge with the help her godmother witch. This movie reminds me of several great movies of the era including Eyes Without A Face and Black Sunday. In my opinion, it exceeds both of them.

The acting was first rate and the directing wonderful. This is a gem from Mexico and it is nice that it finally comes to DVD.

A must see for fans of 1960's atmospheric horror.
