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:
Continuity: 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 »

How did we ever get by without these movies (especially when they starred Barbara Steele)?, 26 May 2006
Author: Lee Eisenberg (lee.eisenberg.pdx@gmail.com) from Portland, Oregon, USA

In one of the many Italian horror flicks from the early-to-mid 1960s, lawyer Albert Kovac (Walter Brandi) goes to a country estate where it turns out that the owner has been dead for a year. This family buried plague victims hundreds of years earlier. But the owner might have never totally left, and his widow Cleo (Barbara Steele) is the most eye-opening of people.

Oh, I can't accurately describe "5 tombe per un medium" (called "Terror-Creatures from the Grave" in the US). You gotta see it. A previous reviewer accurately called it top-notch Eurohorror. Some scenes really give you a "gotcha" feeling. And above all, Barbara Steele is HOT HOT HOT! You're sure to like this movie.
