Trivia

In a taped radio interview, Massimo Pupillo said that Barbara Steele was difficult to work with for the first three or four days, acting like horror films were beneath her. He chewed her out one day in front of cast and crew. After that, he said, she was wonderful to work with. See more »

Goofs

The town clerk keeps referring to Jeronimus Hauff as having died on May 2nd (at least in the English dub). However, the closeup of Hauff's tombstone gives the date as "2-4", which in European notation is April 2nd. See more »

User Reviews

Lepers and Barbara Steele to boot!
22 March 2004 | by rwagnSee all my reviews

I originally caught this black and white thriller in 1966 on a double bill with the color Bloody Pit Of Horror and Terror Creatures made more of an impression on me. It has great atmosphere, graphic special effects makeup (for the time) and a wonderful soundtrack. If anything is lacking, the ending seems a bit rushed. I recommend the VHS version that Something Weird released a few years back. It is struck from an immaculate print and contains the European version of the movie-this includes a brief topless shot (unfortunately not of Babs Steele but she does emerge from her bath in a subsequent tantalizing scene.) The Alpha Video DVD release is taken from a rather scratchy print and is minus the nudity but is available for less than $6.00. This Italian shocker would be a welcome addition to any Euro film collection.
