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

This film is brilliant. Pure gothic gold. Also, It'd be great if jerks like "ejsurvivor" didn't spoil the endings in their reviews!
