Kirk Douglas in one of his finest roles.
23 May 2006 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

As a fan of European horror and cult cinema in general, I can tell that this in one of THE very best produced movies coming from Italy in the seventies. An incredible cast (Kirk Douglas, Agostina Belli, Simon Ward etc, Anthony Quayle; Massimo Foschi etc) doing their all. I've always been a fan of Kirk Douglas, and this is definitely one of his finest (and odd) roles. A wonderful and scary Italian horror classic that has to be seen. Far too underrated I'd say! Also - check for Massimo Foschi, who does an incredible job in this movie. Easily one of the best Italian actors from this period.

Thanks for bringing us a masterpiece, Alberto!
