We rarely have visitors here. It's like living in a tomb... or somewhere at the very edge of the world.
I love these ancient castles... they have such an air of mystery.

I just had the opportunity owning this film on video & I'm glad I jumped at it when I did. This film is very rare & hard to find.
This is a story of a family curse that threatens to wipe out every last member of the Karnstein family. A count seeks out a historian to help him search into his family's past to disprove the curse.
As a child this film scarred me but as an adult it intrigues me. It has elements that horror films lack today: atmosphere & mood. It grosses out but not that much. I enjoyed it a great deal. Since its so rare, any Christopher Lee fan should grab it if they ever find it.
