Another titillating movie from the geniuses at Hammer Films. Damn, I love those guys. They really know how to capture the eerie atmosphere of a horror movie.

The shooting of this complex and disturbing film was beset by tragedy. Original star Peter Cushing had to leave the production after just one day when his wife fell ill and subsequently died. Five weeks into shooting director Seth Holt suffered a heart attack and died, leaving Hammer's managing director Michael Carreras to complete the remaining sequences.
