This above-average horror film concerns a young couple (Antonio Cantafora, Elke Sommer) who manage to revive a cruel sorceror-Baron (Joseph Cotten) from the 1500s. Posing as a cripple, the Baron assimilates back into society and buys back his old castle, where he begins torturing and murdering innocent locals in his dungeon. Veteran filmmaker Mario Bava's direction is assured, and Euro-horror buffs will enjoy the cast, which includes Massimo Girotti ("Terence Hill" of spaghetti western fame), Luciano Pigozzi, Umberto Raho, and young Nicoletta Elmi (Profondo Rosso). ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi
This is a Bava film so I won't say anything bad about it. Of all his movies it's not my favorite, but I didn't dislike it. Although for a Bava film it's very tame and has a mildly simple storyline.(Which anyone who knows his work, would know some of his stuff is way out there.) Anyways if you have a dull night pop it in because it's still Mario Bava.
