Mill of the Stone Women

Mill of the Stone Women

Directed by Giorgio Ferroni

Young art student Hans von Arnam arrives by barge at an old mill to write a monograph about its celebrated sculptures of women in the throes of death and torture, maintained and curated by the mill’s owner, the hermetic Professor Wahl. But when Hans encounters the professor’s beautiful and mysterious daughter Elfi, his own fate becomes inexorably bound up with hers, and with the shocking secret that lies at the heart of the so-called Mill of the Stone Women. The first Italian horror film to be shot in color, Mill of the Stone Women prefigured a raft of other spaghetti nightmares, including the work of maestros Mario Bava and Dario Argento.

A very odd, somewhat nonsensical, but enjoyable bit of weirdness. A little bit too heavy on exposition in some areas and too light on it in others. Definitely worth a watch!

Reminds me a great deal of the old Hammer horror films but the build up is a bit slower.

3.5/5 - Slow start, but gradually picks up steam leading to an excellent finale!

it was ok, kinda dull at points. It's basically an Italian version of House of Wax.
