Trivia

Director Massimo Pupillo wasn't satisfied with the final result of the film, and allowed the film's producer, Ralph Zucker, to take the director's credit instead even though Zucker hadn't directed any scenes. This has later led people to confuse Pupillo and Zucker for one another. See more »

Goofs

The town clerk keeps referring to Jeronimus Hauff as having died on May 2nd (at least in the English dub). However, the closeup of Hauff's tombstone gives the date as "2-4", which in European notation is April 2nd. See more »

Quotes

Jeronimus Hauff: I summoned them from their graves, and now I have become one of them.

Enjoyable Italian Gothic chiller
5 May 2013 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland, UK) – See all my reviews

Medieval plague victims return from the dead to terrorise a group of people who were enemies of a dead man with expertise in the occult.

This is another in the cycle of Italian Gothic horror films that were especially popular in the 60's. It stars the queen of Italian horror from this period, Barbara Steele. She was hardly a scream queen however. She was rarely the one doing the screaming, she was usually the aggressor. In this movie she again is no victim and like always she provides some real class to proceedings. The story itself is fairly standard stuff, with nothing out of the ordinary. It's really pretty decent stuff though if you have an appreciation for horror films with a Gothic atmosphere. There are plenty of well used locations and the mood is effective enough. I enjoyed it and recommend it to fans of Italian Gothic.
