Retromedia brings us the best looking widescreen print of this film I have ever seen.
A maniac is kidnapping young women from Venice Italy and embalming them in his secret lair so they can stay with him and be beautiful forever.
A nosy reporter tries to uncover the mysterious disappearances. His journey leads him to the crazed man and his underwater lair. When discovered the man is wearing a monks outfit with a bizarre skeleton mask which is very macabre.
The film is well made and the photography is great with some very scary moments. The ending is somber and downbeat, but that is how it should be I suppose with such a tale. Recommended for any horror fan.
A very simplistic story that is very effective.
