There he visits the castle of an ancestor, a sadistic Baron who was cursed to a violent death by a witch whom the Baron had burned at the stake.

Did You Know?
The Vienna castle where the film was shot was originally thought to be a museum, but that information is incorrect. In his book "Mario Bava: All the Colors of the Dark," Tim Lucas gives this misinformation, but on commentary of the Kino-Lorber DVD release he corrects himself, explaining that the film's producer had stated that it was filmed at the museum. Lucas had, since the book's publication, learned that it was actually shot at Burg Kreuzenstein. See more
