Trivia

In the 'nazi' room, a lampshade with a swastika on it is made to look like pieces of flesh make up the lampshade. It is now believed to be a myth that human lampshades were actually made by Nazis at concentration camps where millions were murdered. There have been lampshades made of animal skin that were believed to be human, but no proof exists of human skin connected to Holocaust. See more »

Goofs

One of the girls begins a game of pool by slightly breaking the racked balls, however the next shot shows the balls distributed all over the table as if they had been broken much more forcefully. See more »

bad movie? bad hair!
2 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

I caught this on a Brentwood 10 movie compilation. The first thing I noticed was how bad everyone's hair looked. The only guy I recognized was John Russell. I said to myself, "That's the guy from Lawman!" He played Frank the chauffeur and was probably the only sane person in the whole film and was evidently a badass. Some wacky, wacky stuff going on here. The butler, Ygor, looked just like Mel Brooks. He was nuts. The beautiful young daughter, she was nuts. The greasy haired brother, he was nuts, too. All these people had to stay in their dad's/employer's house for a week to get his dough. That was the late, great John Carradine. He had died and evidently hated everybody. Well, naturally, the bodies start to pile up. This movie kept me interested. I was not expecting Citizen Kane. It dealt with some hot button issues for the time it was made. Overall not too shabby. I mean, you gotta take in to account the budget, state of the art of cinema at the time, things like that. Only the ending left me scratching my head. Were there multiple killers or what? Give it a shot.
