Filmed on the Ellis Estate in Scituate, MA, where another Italian horror film, Ghosthouse (1988), was filmed. See more »
In the scene were Laura Gittleson - the real estate agent is killed by Dr Freudstein, we see her body lying on the floor with her eyes closed and her mouth open. A few moments later we see Freudstein drag her into the basement and her eyes are now open, but her mouth is closed. Then later, when we see her hanging in the basement near the end of the film, her eyes and mouth are both open. See more »
Mae, time to go home and remember your manners. Now that Bob is staying with us, be sure to treat him like a Freudstein. For other guests are surely destined to drop in.

Another terrifying Italian shocker from the legendary Lucio Fulci. A family move into a creepy old house and are unaware that living in the cellar is the flesh-eating zombie of a 19th Century surgeon. The little boy is soon a friend with the ghost of the late doctors daughter who warns them to stay away but to little effect. The creature gruesomely kills and dismembers a variety of Estate Agents, Copulating teenagers and Babysitters leading to a terrifying finale in the corpse-strewn cellar. The Lucio Fulci trademark of graphic gore is abundant as ever but it is the atmosphere that makes this movie stand out. Bumps in the night and the ominous crying of children coming from the cellar are just some of the factors that assault and disturb the viewer. This is a truly amazing movie that relies on shock and terror rather than revulsion. The gore just adds to what is already a truly chilling little tale of cannibalism and depravity that will linger in the mind long after you've forgotten about the illogical plot and poor dubbing. One of Fulci's best films. Deserves its cult reputation. My Rating 9 out of 10.
