At the height of her career as the dark goddess of Italian horror, the legendary Barbara Steele (Black Sunday) delivered two of her most memorable performances in this tale of obsession, madness and depravity. Steele stars as a cheating wife who is chained, whipped and tortured to death by her sadistic scientist husband, and as her unstable blonde stepsister whose fate may be even more ghastly. Paul Muller (Vampyros Lesbos), Helga Line (Horror Express) and Rik Battaglia (Sister Emanuelle) co-star in this twisted shocker directed by Mario Caiano, featuring stunning black & white cinematography by Enzo Barboni and the very first horror score by Ennio Morricone. Throw away all those inferior transfers from censored TV prints: This is Nightmare Castle like you've never seen it before!
Castle of Blood
When American author, Edgar Allen Poe visits London, he is approached by British journalist Alan Foster, who becomes the target of a peculiar wager. Not believing Poe's assertion that all of his macabre stories have been based on actual experience, Foster accepts a bet from Poe and his friend Sir Thomas Blackwood that he cannot spend an entire night in the Blackwood's haunted castle. Once in the abandoned castle, Foster discovers that he is not alone. He is approached by two beautiful women, a handsome man and a doctor of metaphysics who explains they are lost souls... damned to replay the stories of their demise on the anniversary of their deaths! Starring Barbara Steele, Georges Rivière, Margrete Robsahm, Salvo Randone, and Sylvia Sorrente.
