Storyline

A wealthy English lord is suffering a mental breakdown following the death of his red-headed wife, Evelyn, whom he feared was cheating on him. He tours local bars and dives, scouring for lovely red-heads willing to come back to his decaying castle in the country, where he seduces them, then tortures and kills them. His friend the doctor talks him into marrying again to help heal his slowly-rotting mind, which he does--but are the doctor's orders really what he needs? Written by EllenRipley112

So-so Italian horror
24 September 2006 | by preppy-3See all my reviews

Handsome and wealthy Alan Cunningham has just been released from an asylum. He was put there after a breakdown he had when his unfaithful wife Evelyn died. He now picks up women who look like Evelyn, takes them to his remote castle, tortures them and kills them. But he seems cured later on when he marries Gladys--who looks just like Evelyn. But then people are being killed, Alan starts seeing Evelyn's ghost, her tomb is found empty and he starts to slowly go mad...

The synopsis may sound strange but so is the movie! There's plenty of things wrong with this: the plot refuses to make sense, the acting is pretty bad, the dubbing is awful and the film is relatively bloodless. Also there's an astounding amount of misogyny in this (even for a horror film). It's actually quite dull--until the end. There's a double twist ending which caught me by surprise and it gets very bloody too. Still, that's only the last 15 minutes or so--the preceding 80 minutes are hard to slog through. There is also a fair amount of nudity (all female of course) and the main actors are attractive--but that's not enough to recommend this. Completists of Italian horror cinema may enjoy this. Also most of the DVD versions of this are in terrible shape--mine was incorrectly letterboxed, had faded color and nonstop jumps and scratches. One sequence even started with the top of the image on the bottom of the screen! So--beware. I give it a 6--mostly for the ending.
