Synopsis by Robert Firsching
Italian filmmaker Sergio Bergonzelli (Nelle Pieghe della Carne) directed this ridiculous horror film starring John Phillip Law as another in the long line of the genre's crazed artists. Reminiscent of A Bucket of Blood and Color Me Blood Red, the film delights in showing Law painting with blood, ranting about being the reincarnation of Van Gogh, and pursuing pianist Brigitte Christensen. He wants her to replace his dead wife, whose corpse sits at the piano in his stately castle. The dead wife isn't spared either, getting molested by Law's necrophiliac butler (former sword-and-sandal star Gordon Mitchell), who spends his spare time sawing up local women. To add to the catalogue of silliness, Law gets his ear lopped off by a ghost before the castle comes tumbling to the ground. Absolute trash, this one is for completists and masochists only.
