A hunchbacked caretaker presides over a forlorn mansion inhabited by the ghosts of his previous masters.An unbelieving trio(a doctor,his assistant and his niece)fail to heed the caretaker's warnings and are slaughtered horribly by the jealous occupants."The Ghost of the Hunchback" is one of the few Japanese haunted house movies made during 60's.The film clearly resembles Italian Gothic horror films made by Mario Bava and Antonio Margheriti.The acting is solid,the atmosphere is wonderfully spooky and foggy and there are some gruesome scenes."The Ghost of the Hunchback" was released on tape in Italy under the title "Il Pozzo di Satana".It's a crying shame that it faded so quickly into obscurity.Give this creepy gem a look,because it deserves to be seen.8 out of 10.
