“There’s some gore abound, including a great money shot where an old woman’s severed head falls to the ground when her still-standing corpse is shaken.” DVD Drive-In

” …three performances from Naschy (as the well meaning fakir, as his evil brother, and in an effective nightmare sequence, as the devil himself!), several gory neck slashings (one self inflicted!), a gaggle of green faced undead gals, and Mr. Waldemar himself giving you all he’s got.” The Terror Trap

  1. What a wonderfully insane, anything goes, 1970s Euro Horror outing. Really love the sexy zombie women and the totally inappropriate main theme. Infamous as the movie that made some satanists show up and Naschy’s house in order to enlist him as their leader. Mrs. Naschy sent them packing!
