Your worst nightmare, Uncle Fester
16 May 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The Blancheville Monster adapted from an Edgar Allan Poe story would have needed the touch of Vincent Price to truly make this a classic. As it is the film is like a home town group theater production of a the same story.

It's an Italian production of a British couple with an American brother and sister visiting a sinister French château in Brittany. Can't get more international than that, but Poe liked to vary his story locations, he was not a chauvinistic American just as Jules Verne was not chauvinistic Frenchman.

The younger sister of the Marquess of Blancheville is the subject of some frightening experiences because a family curse has said one female in the family must die before the age of 21 to insure long life for the rest. More than that I can't say, but these things do take on a life of their own at times.

Although the producers didn't mean it as the Addams Family was a few years in the future, it didn't help to have one of the living nightmares of the dead father of the surviving Blancheville brother and sister look like Uncle Fester.

It's not a bad film, but I do wish these things were exclusively the property of Vincent Price.
