One of the scariest movies of the century!!!
25 October 1998 | by (Torino, Italy) – See all my reviews

With a superb performance by both Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee, this chilling film by Freddie Francis is absolutely a must see by harcore horror fans. An original cruel Gothic tale about a scientist who discovers the skeleton of a prehistoric man who appears to be the evil itself... A show which will be printed on your mind for the rest of your life...
