In this remake of his own La Danza Macabra, director Antonio Margheriti casts Anthony Franciosa as writer Alan Foster, who accepts a bet from Edgar Allan Poe (Klaus Kinski) and his friend Thomas Blackwood (Enrico Osterman). No one has ever survived a night in Blackwood’s castle, but the skeptical Foster gladly accepts the dare. The castle is striking and scary, which soon begins to affect Foster’s mind. He meets Blackwood’s sister Elisabeth (Michele Mercier) and the jealous Julia (Karin Field). Julia’s portrait had intrigued him earlier, but it is Elisabeth whom Foster beds, only to see her stabbed by a stranger. The attacker’s body vanishes after Foster kills him, and he quickly realizes that the castle is inhabited by vampiric ghosts. Foster must survive the horrors of the night and hold on to not only his life, but his sanity as well.
Nella stretta morsa del ragno
All films are rated for audio and video these can be found in the specifications in product descriptions.
Everyone rates in different ways and what maybe an 8 to me might be a 6 or 9 to you so please bear in mind that they are there as a rough guide only.
A rating of 8.5 will normally be direct from a VHS master or equivalent
9 upwards will be from good quality TV broadcasts, screeners etc.
8 and below will be from 2nd or even 3rd generation prints from all types of master.
Fullscreen & widescreen titles are marked with a W or F or some 16:9 or 4:3
Widescreen can mean anything from a slight scope to 16:9 anamorphic. We try and mention this in descriptions when we can.
Every title on the site is region free so no matter where in the world you live you should have no problems playing any of our discs. Your only requirement is a DVD player capable of receiving a PAL and NTSC signal, about 99% of European players have this facility, the rest of the world check the net for compatible players.
