Laurence Tierny was in this?
29 May 2017 | by BezenbySee all my reviews

The print for this rare giallo is in pretty rough shape, but it's a rare giallo! They all must be watched. Although made in 1968, this one feels more like a throwback to the old Gothic horror days of 1964, what with the castle and the mute servants and the superstitious maids and what not. And I've already seen someone fall off this particular castle in another film (A for Assassin, perhaps).

And so it came to pass that Lady McDonald of Nottingham Castle was beset by mental illness and looked after by her husband in the castle with some other suspects. Sigh. No wonder they had to introduce boobs and blood to the gialli because by this point the plots and settings are getting pretty tedious.

Someone's killing the maids amongst other and you've got all the red herrings to choose from and the outside who gets caught up in the mystery. It's not the best example of this film but it does pick up a bit (notwithstanding the scene were Lady McDonald discuss where she wants to put furniture in a room -thanks for that bit) and there's a fair old pile of corpses by the end. It's not hard to figure it out though.

The dippy maid Betty was pretty good though.
