084 LOVERS FROM THE TOMB (1965) uncut 106 min Barbara Steel
084 LOVERS FROM THE TOMB (1965) uncut 106 min Barbara Steel

The Fully Uncut (106 Min) International English Version

Original Italian Title: AMANTI D'OLTRETOMBA [The Lovers From The Tomb]
also known as NIGHT OF THE DOOMED and NIGHTMARE CASTLE [Edited USA Version]

director: Mario Caiano (as Allen Grunwald)
starring: Barbara Steel Paul Muller Helga Line Lawrence Cliff Rik Battaglia John McDouglas

Although she is probably best known for her Mario Bava film MASK OF SATAN (or for L'ARMATA BRANCALEONE because of her nude scene), this film is generally considered Barbara Steel's best performance. Mario Caiano's rich photography adds an amazing luster to the movie, but it is Ms Steel who - in her dual good-and-evil roles - makes it unforgettable. She stars as a faithless wife who [with her lover] is tortured to death in a dungeon by her vengeful husband. The husband soon discovers that his rich wife had left her fortune to a mentally unbalanced sister (this time a blonde Steel). The husband decides to marry the sister-in-law with the sole intention of driving her mad so he can commit her to an asylum and claim the inheritance. But things don't go as planned.

This is a moody, disturbing Italian Gothic from director Caiano (also see EYE OF THE LABYRINTH) loosely based on an M R James ghost story Lost Hearts. This is the fully uncut version and the torture scenes are remarkably strong for their time.

An Italian Film in English language; widescreen format (16:9), uncut (106 minutes), DVD encoded for ALL REGION NTSC WORLD FORMAT; extras include original theatrical trailer.
