Dean Selmier, Sandra Mozaroski, Victoria Vera. An 1899 London orphanage is the setting for this weird tale. There is a really cool looking monster-guy doing weird experiments on an attractive young woman. He's actually a fire-scarred mad doctor who subjects his beautiful victim to memory-draining surgery, turning her into a zombie. Written by
"El Colegio de la Muerte" aka "School of Death" is an obscure horror/mystery obviously influenced by Serrador's masterful "La Residencia" aka "The House that Screamed".A beautiful orphans in boarding school Saint Elizabeth Refuge are captured by badly disfigured doctor and then lobotomized and turned into his slaves.The film is slow-moving and too tame-in fact "La Residencia" is much better and more gruesome film.There is very little blood in "School of Death" and absolutely no nudity.The action often drags,but the twists are genuinely surprising and the fog-shrouded mood is nice.Unfortunately the lead actress Sandra Mozarowsky of "Night of the Seagulls" fame committed suicide two years after "School of Death" was made.6 out of 10.
