Synopsis by Robert Firsching
Spanish horror star Jacinto Molina, best known as Paul Naschy, stars in this bloody horror film from gore specialist Carlos Aured. Molina plays a knight who is decapitated and whose wife is cut in half, cursing his descendents when they come to the old mansion looking for his head. The knight's head is rejoined to his body, his wife (Cristina Suriani) is revived, and much mayhem follows. A maid has her head lopped off with a sickle, Suriani rips flesh from a man's back during sex, and zombies emerge from a nearby lake. Aured throws everything but the kitchen sink into this violent pastiche, but the engaging cast (including horror regulars Helga Line, Emma Cohen, and Vic Winner) and some creative touches make it worth seeing for Naschy devotees. One of the best Spanish horror films, this was the first effort of the nascent Profilmes production company, which turned out numerous genre efforts over the ensuing years.
