Only loosely based on Edgar Allen Poe's classic short story, this horror film was filmed on location in a spooky Italian castle and tells the convoluted story of a mad priest who devises exquisitely painful ways of getting his victims to confess to dabbling in witchcraft. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Boring adaptation with no scares, no mood and no sex appeal (considering it's a form of sexual persecution)
Not bad, but I expected a lot more from Stuart Gordon.
Really underrated horror film from Stuart Gordon.
Schlock of a very fine vintage.
