The town unearths a crypt full of horrors, including a devil-worshipping coven and throngs of the living dead. Written by
Paul Naschy had to play a secondary role as Igor the gravedigger because he was acting in another movie being shot at the exact same time. See more »
When confronted by two of the zombies after escaping the catacombs, Serges shoots one of them nine times with his revolver. This was after already discharging it in the catacombs several times, but prior to any reloading. Most revolvers contain only five or six cartridges. See more »
I would imagine that many, as I, watched this film because of Paul Naschy. He has a supporting part as a gravedigger. For Naschy completists, it is essential. For others, it probably would deserve a pass as it it unremarkable.
It opens with a Gothic sound and tone, and the washed out color contributes to the feel. Just what is happening is not very clear.
There is plenty of nudity, but there is also some gory nudity, especially where Igor (Naschy) is concerned.
The ending features zombies, and a walking Naschy with a knife in his chest, and a mad doctor.
Naschy was great, as was Stelvio Rosi and Dyanik Zurakowska.
