Nope, I have never reviewed this film on my blog.

This is, of course, the notorious Roger Corman production that was helmed by Corman and four other directors including actor Jack Nicholson.

Boris Karloff stars as Baron Von Lepp, a man living in a secluded castle whose life interrupted by the arrival of a French soldier named Lt. Andre Duvalier (Jack Nicholson). Lepp lets Duvalier in and soon the trouble starts as the young French soldier sees a beautiful woman (Sandra Knight) which everyone else says does not exist.

This film is somewhat confusing and your liking it just actually depends on your frame of mind. It was pieced together from footage from several different directors who shot the footage around already filmed scenes of Boris Karloff.

There are several huge gaps in logic and plot line,but this is to be expected when you have a movie made under such circumstances. I do admit there are a LOT of plot twists in this movie and that actually works to it's advantage.

There are some great shots in a graveyard and gorgeous Sandra Knight makes a very fetching leading lady. As with the last film I reviewed here, I am sure you have seen this movie sometime in your life if you're a horror fan.

I have always liked this film and I guess that is simply because of the cast which also includes Dick Miller, Jonathan Haze and Dorothy Neumann. It also helps that I consider Sandra Knight one of the most beautiful women in the world.
