story drives the plot in this Itallian horror thriller. The film

(Christopher Lee), the older son of Count Menliff (Gustavo De Nardo),
was in marriage preparations with Nevenka (Daliah Lavi). However, Kurt
had an affair with Tania, the daughter of Menliffs' servant Giorgia
(Harriet Medin), and Tania committed suicide because of Kurt's
prospective marriage. Count Menliff rejected Kurt and he left the
castle. Meanwhile, Nevenka married Cristiano (Tony Kendall), Kurt's
One day, Kurt arrives at the castle, superficially to celebrate
Cristiano and Nevenka but in fact he is to reclaim his title and
fortune, which supposedly also includes Nevenka. During an evening on
the beach and following a session of flogging, masochistic Nevenka
understands that she is still in love with Kurt. Frustrated, she does
not return to the castle and is eventually found unconscious by the
butler Losat (Luciano Pigozzi). At the same night, Kurt is killed under
curious circumstances, with the same dagger Tania had committed suicide
with. Now, Kurt is dead but a series of events hints that his ghost has
started to haunt the castle for revenge.
This is a film to watch if you’re a film enthusiast. Mario Bava is a master at lighting, set design and cinematography.
