The Whip and The Body

The Whip and The Body

Directed by Mario Bava

A sadistic count (LORD OF THE RINGS' Christopher Lee) becomes a vengeful ghost who torments the living in Italian horror godfather Mario Bava's gothic nightmare. Famous for playing Dracula for Hammer Studios, Lee was the perfect choice to play Kurt Menliff, the sadistic son of a wealthy Count, who returns to the family castle, much to the dismay of his family and the beautiful woman with whom he shares a fondness for the lash. When Kurt is found murdered, his vengeful spirit cannot be contained by the grave, and he returns to Menliff Manor for revenge.

A sadistic count (Christopher Lee) becomes a vengeful ghost who torments the living.

Cast: Christopher Lee, Daliah Lavi, Tony Kendall

I fell in love with this movie a long time ago and don't recall the viewing fully. Why is it re-re-dubbed? It should be on pain of death that a horror film advertises Christopher Lee and then brutally dubs him. The plot holds up, but my heart is broken.

Can't go wrong with a little of the late great Sir Christopher Lee.
