Movie Info

One of the last and most interesting Italian horror productions featuring the alluring Barbara Steele, this obscure feature from Crypt of the Vampire director Camillo Mastrocinque apparently never found distribution in English, and dubbed or subtitled prints are all but nonexistent. Steele's character in the film is haunted by a decrepit statue submerged in a lake, whose features look disturbingly like her own. Upon complete restoration of the statue, Steele begins to take on the psychotic traits of the woman upon whom the sculpture was based -- a woman the townspeople believe was a much-feared sorceress of local legend. Curious fans of the sultry horror star will find much to enjoy, even in the Italian-language version -- Steele's magnetic performance and the strong visuals propel the story with or without the minimal dialogue. ~ Cavett Binion, Rovi

An evil bloodthirsty witch has taken up residence in an Italian village after haunting a creepy marble statue that had fallen into the nearby lake. This really interesting Italian horror feature has some great performances. Including one memorable role for the beautiful star Barbara Steele. This statue had been rescued from the lake, much to the dismay of the patrons of the village. Many believe that bringing the statue back will rustle up some evil. Eventually something bad might happen in the community. That ultimately comes true as the mysterious Harriet Montebruno (Barbara Steele) becomes bewitched by the run-down statue. Strangely, it bears a resemblance to her. Albeit a slight resemblance. Now this witchy woman is causing all sorts of trouble and terrorizes this little berg. Although this movie was in Italian with subtitles. It took nothing away from being alluring. It didn't need a ton of blood or gore. It relied on its superb visuals and believable performances to drive the film forward. It's not that scary but it is a great film. I didn't really know what to expect but what I took away was positive. If you want to develop a love for Italian horror, then you assuredly need to find and watch this. It's not over the top or preachy with its drama. It doesn't venture too far out and is not at all a "Chick Flick". This is simply a classic, Gothic horror movie that checks all of the boxes and makes for a fantastic viewing.

A predictable horror story without any blood or gore, but the actors are very good, especially Steele. Overall, it's pretty good, but it could have been better.
