Italian Horror Masterpiece
30 January 2005 | by (Galicia (Spain)) – See all my reviews

Definitely, this splendid movie is still the only one to match up to "La maschera del demonio" (1960, Mario Bava) as the most brilliant and complex Italian Horror film (in any age, of course).

Beautifully shot, with an unforgettable performance from Barbara Steele (arguably her best!) and outstanding macabre atmosphere.

As the Bava film, this one deals with such a taboo theme as necrophilia, in an even more morbid way. Although the story is located in 19th-century London, those magnificent sets are obviously Italian.

Not for the popcorn-eater kind of horror fans, they could find this just boring. OK, give them one of those dumb teen flick from Hollywood (any age, too)and leave Dr. Hichcock for keen cinema buffs.
