Vincent Price later expressed a strong dislike for the film in a letter written to German actor and puppeteer Gerd J. Pohl. Price said that his agent misrepresented it and Price was trapped in it. See more »
Tennessee carried out no executions between November 1960 and April 2000, but had it carried out an execution in the 1980s, the state would have used the electric chair. Tennessee did not authorize lethal injection as a method of execution in the 1980s, so the scene depicted early in the film could not have taken place. Electrocution was the only method on the books from 1916 until lethal injection was adopted in 2000. See more »

Of the many horror films I used to alleviate childhood boredom, this one was indelibly etched into my brain and probably will be forever. A cinematic achievement of unparalleled depravity, this Vincent Price vehicle (filmed in the Autumn of his life) contains incest, rape, child molestation, necrophilia, voodoo, glass-eating, slavery, mutilations, dismemberment, vengeance and allusions to cannibalism. By genre standards, the scripting, filming and performances were, for the most part, excellent and the work contains enough scatology to hold the interest of even the most reluctant horror/exploitation filmgoer. View this work if you would like to see an exaggerated depiction of humanity at it most malignant neatly condensed into four vignettes.
