terrific moody film, with some great visual sequences and an intelligent script. Anyone who loved company of wolves should really see this one.

Saw this when I was like fourteen or thirteen. A very good movie you're looking for an old style 70's horror, gothic cliched romance type of movie.

Very picturesque but totally mind-numbing late period Hammer, set in the same gneeric mittelEuropean village of the superior and more atmospheric Vampire Circus, etc. The best thing about this film is Gillian Hills, who spends most of her time asleep.

This has all the trappings of classic Hammer, despite being from the tale end of the studio. Gothic setting, roaming priests, and a village of pitch fork and torch wielding peasants. All good so far.
Unfortunately what it isn't is any good. Despite the setting this turns into some kind of family melodrama and study in old fashioned psycho analysis. They even try and spice things up with the by then standard nudity and a plot involving incest, dark family secrets and insanity.
Still fails to generate any interest. It was 45 minutes or so in before I had any idea what was going on and by then I was waiting for it to finish.

An unusual Hammer film about a family with a history of insanity. The fine cast includes Robert Hardy, Patrick Magee and Sir Michael Hordern.

½ December 19, 2007
Disappointing costume melodrama from Hammer Studios that is misleadingly promoted as a Gothic horror film or a psychological thriller (it's neither). Tries to maintain interest with taboo story elements such as incest, demonic possession, sacrilegious beliefs, and such, but it all adds up to nothing of consequence. Skip it.

didn't mean to see it but it's okay

Haunted by memories of driving his wife insane, mad baron Zorn (Robert Hardy), is obsessed with the "heritage of disorder" that he thinks might afflict his two grown children Elisabeth (Gillian Hills) and Emil (Shane Briant, in his film debut), whom he keeps locked up in his beautiful castle home, searching for a "cure." With the help of bald manservant Klaas (Kenneth J. Warren) and stern aunt Hilda (Yvonne Mitchell), he drains their blood to keep them weak, forbids them to see each other (there's incest involved) and ignores the expert opinions of a doctor (played by one of my all-time favorite character actors Patrick Magee). Meanwhile, there's a rapist/murderer on the loose terrorizing a quaint neighboring village.

This psychological horror story is a fine deviation from Hammer's cycle of monster movies, highlighted by excellent period costumes and sets (especially the castle) and Christopher Wicking's provocative screenplay (which resembles V.C. Andrews' later novel FLOWERS IN THE ATTIC). Only the finale, with a mob of torch-carrying villagers hunting Hardy down a la FRANKENSTEIN, really detracts from this well above par Hammer production.

Sounds really sick and twisted. I don't dig that horror-porno shit.
