“What is it? Is it a castle?”

A filthy rich English lord, with a decaying castle, has suffered a mental breakdown following the death of his red-headed wife, Evelyn, whom he feared was cheating on him. He brings back other red-heads, mainly strippers and hookers, to his castle for some torturing and killing. His friend, the doctor, is convincing him to get married again. When the wife has settled, the ghost of Evelyn is roaming the grounds again. Or so it seems…

A highly entertaining movie detailing the style and fashion of the period. Well directed with a great atmosphere and a good (and typical Giallo-)plot. It feels like a crossover between a thriller and a horror. You’re not quite sure if it is supernatural or not (until the end). Creepy and brutal! If you love good B-movies, this is one for you! Beware of the nasty fox-feast-scene.
