Castle Of The Walking Dead (1967)
After a public execution, the good citizens of a small Transylvanian community think they have finally rid themselves of the murderous Count Regula, known to his victims as Dr. Sadism... they were wrong! Even being drawn and quartered does not cripple this sadist. Thirty-five years later, he comes back to seek revenge on the daughter of his intended thirteenth victim and the son of his prosecutor in order to attain immortal life. Borrowing loosely from Poe's "The Pit and the Pendulum", director Harald Reinl does a masterful job of pacing and fills the screen with surreal and spine tingling images. Reinl's real-life wife Karin Dor plays the luscious Baroness Lilian von Brabant, the last female member of one of the families. Only her blood can give the count what he needs for his "life elixir." Featuring horror legend Christopher Lee in the title role and ex-Tarzan legend Lex Barker as the hero this is a classic Euro shocker sure to shock and awe!
