    A Roger Corman flick written by Jack Hill and starring Jack Nicholson, Boris Karloff, and the always alluring Sandra Knight -- what'd you expect? Godard? What's here is great early '60's Corman, further testament to the man's genius ability to trick something entertaining and worthwhile out of the most miniscule budget. John Nickolaus's cinematography is delightfully lurid in spots, too -- in other spots, yeah, it's dreadful. But, whatever. Did I mention that Sandra Knight is totally hot in this picture?

    Shot in three days, the quality of all involved on both sides of the camera shows that movies worth seeing don't have to cost millions and take months to film. Just the ones worth seeing more than once.

    A young French officer is drawn into a mystery at an ancient castle when he is approached by a beautiful woman who may not be all that she appears to be. Nicholson, and a creepy score, elevates what is otherwise a rather bland and outdated horror pic.

    Roger Corman gets the ultimate directors credit (or should it be blame), for this slapped together horror movie essentially made because Corman wanted to take advantage of the cool sets he had for "The Raven" before they were torn down. The movie stars a young Jack Nicholson and Boris Karloff. It is a confusing mess with barely a script, a lot of different directors, and more boring scenes than scary ones.
