From when it was known as "The Dance of Death"...
11 October 2004 | by works-2See all my reviews

"This overlooked gem is a combo horror film and crime film, filled with atmospheric scenes in and around an eerie country mansion and a spooky, overgrown cemetery. Unknown killers threaten a playboy millionaire with death. A posh detective comes to his lonely country estate to protect him. Within the mansion's walls are many suspicious characters, including three vampish bomb-shells (one resembles Barbara Steele), along with two odd servants: one tall, dark and gruesome, the other a small Peter Lorre-type. Terrifying things soon happen. The sinister shadow of an unknown killer is seen prowling the grounds in the black of the night. A guard dog is found dead - poisoned. The chauffeur is found, his head jammed into the blades of a car's cooling fan-the motor still running! Things finally end up in a local graveyard where our hero is sealed up in a tomb! A neat, twist ending finishes off this fine, obscure Euro-thriller. Fairly similar to a 1960s Edgar Wallace chiller"
