Plot Sypnosis:

NOW IT’S YOUR TURN TO DIE…

In the final film of his early '60s European period, Christopher Lee stars as a 19th century Count who invites a theatrical troupe for a weekend of horrors that boasts an enthusiastically creepy performance by Lee, startling locations in Lazio, Italy's Orsini-Odescalchi Castle and 'Park of the Monsters', second-unit direction by Michael Reeves (WITCHFINDER GENERAL) and the screen debut of Donald Sutherland as both a doofus gendarme and a hunchbacked hag. Philippe Leroy (THE NIGHT PORTER) and Jacques Stany (VIOLENCE IN A WOMEN'S PRISON) co-star in this 1964 French-Italian co-production from American producer Paul Maslansky - who would go on to produce DEATH LINE and the POLICE ACADEMY movies - and fellow expat writer/director Warren Kiefer - after whom Sutherland would name his son - now scanned in 4K from the Italian negative for the first time ever for this 1080p Blu-ray release.
