svg-play Trailer

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.

This is why I’m on Shudder. Lost Italian Gothic classic. “Eyes Without a Face” + “Tourist Trap” / “The Whip and the Body” = This.

Great macabre tale. Almost like an Italian Frankenstein but there is no violence.
