Alternate Versions

The English dubbed version that was released in the US tones down a graphic beheading near the end of the film. It otherwise appears complete. Comparison to a German VHS reveals that the beheading in intact in the German print, but another torture scene is cut short, before the payoff (it involves the woman hoisted up over the pointed box device). It is unclear is a fully uncut print has been released anywhere to this date. See more »

Very nice Movie
23 February 2011 | by martin-nechvatal-comSee all my reviews

I like this Movie very much.It is not so good like MARK OF THE DEVIL,but also very entertaining as well.

The cast with the German Actors Anton Diffring(Balthazar Ross),Lukas Amman(Eminence),Johannes Buzalski(Advocatus),Joachim Hackethal(corpulent torturer),Dietrich Kerky(Father Melchior)and Astrid Killian(young Nun)did very well.

There are also Austrians like Jean-Pierre Zola(Fahter of Countess Salmenau),Ellen Umlauf(Mother Superior),Harry Hardt,Adrian Hoven(Count van Salmenau),Percy Hoven(young Boy)and Reggie Nalder(Natas).

Erica Blanc as Countess van Salmenau did a very good performance. Sure,there was not really much Budget for it.But the sexualized torture scenes work very good out.

The whole Movie was shot in Austria.They used most of the same Locations like the first part.Last Fall i visited Lungau,Mauterndorf in Austria. They shot in real torture Chambers at Castle Moosham!This Castle was a real place for this,where Schörgen Toni examine "witches" in the witch tower.Now this place is hunted!

They also shot at Castle Finstergruen exteriors for the Movie.A few shots where made at Castle Mauterndorf.For example in the scene with the young maid that buys ingredients for an "love-drink" and than took a away for torture.This was shot in the inner Bailey of Castle Mauterndorf.

When you wanna made a bizarre trip to Austria,visit Lungau(Region Salzburg).

Join this Movie when you liked THE WITCHFINDER GENERAL or MARK OF THE DEVIL!

At least one correction: In the first review of this Film,the writer made a mistake about the Cast.Anton Diffring plays the Witch Hunter Balthazar Ross.Not the Priest! Father Melchior is played by German Sexfilm-Actor Dietrich Kerky.
