Did You Know?

Brazilian independent filmmaker (and Jess Franco fan) Felipe M. Guerra was responsible for a fan-cut that tried to reconstruct the original director's version of this movie (now considered lost). Guerra used parts of the other two versions, on VHS and DVD, eliminating all additional scenes of each one and keeping the original audio in Spanish. The result was shown in a special exhibition on Fantaspoa - International Fantastic Film Festival of Porto Alegre (Brazil), on May 19, 2016, with the presence of actor Antonio Mayans. After the projection, in a Q & A, Mayans said that this was the first time he saw the film as it was originally conceived by Jess, and thanked Felipe for having "restored dignity" to the project. The Spanish actor also confirmed that the additional scenes of the French version (the only one commercially released until now) were not directed by Jess, but by Olivier Mathot.See more »

A hack job..., 25 May 2003
Author: macabro357 from U.S.

Starring the usual Franco stalwart Howard Vernon (in terrible white pancake makeup), this one is awful, simply awful. The dubbing, the acting, the prosthetics, the makeup, everything....

This just goes to show you what a schlock director Jess Franco had become. A third year film student could do better than this.

It doesn't even hold a candle of Roger Corman's HOUSE OF USHER (1960). Nowhere close...

Other than having a couple of cute Spanish chicks, this waste of celluloid that has nothing going for it.

1 out of 10 for being such a silver nitrate waste
