I watched this film last night and was absolutely astonished by it - so you can imagine my surprise when I saw two bad reviews as its only representation here on IMDb. Firstly if you are the type of person who expects there to be graphically gruesome gory killing every 5 minutes then I have two things to say to you: 1. you will be disappointed by this and 2. why in the world are you watching a movie like this?!
If however you are a fan of this period of Spanish/Italian horror films
you know who you are and you know what you want - this movie delivers
in spades. It's got a creepy Gothic castle, very unusual spacey Spanish babes (a la Helga Line or Rosalba Neri), strange sexual relationships, a supernatural element, and all the ingredients that make you love these things.
A newlywed couple arrives back at his castle which he shares with his butterfly taxidermying sister and overly flirty stepmother. The new bride find out the the old bride didn't die exactly the way it was explained to her and soon new bodies start piling up. Great performances all around, and nice location, photography and direction make this a high note in the Spanish Giallo Horror subgenre.
