Nightmare Castle - The Barbara Steele Thread.
 
I first saw this film in the Mill Creek 50 Horror film set. So the film stood out to me, I watched it in bed one night and I enjoyed its creepy atmosphere and Barbra Steele made a brilliant performance.

So I was wondering what are your thoughts on the film?

Italy+Barbara Steele+1960s= goodness, I like all the Freda, Bava and Margheriti films she did, look the rest of em up BOF, you won't be disappointed if you like NC.

I keep meaning to pick up the Severin dvd of this as its a restored gorgeous print. I'm just so familiar with it as it seems to appear on every Mill Creek set i buy that i never get on with it.

It was Nightmare Castle that introduced me to Barbra Steele

BARBARA STEELE, Euro gothic goddess, enough reason to watch this movie.

I originally thought she was a low budget film star and all she was in was low budget films, I didn't know she was a mega star of horror

She still is, her last film was amazing!

I'll go through her filmography to see if I can buy her films on dvd

Might watch this tonight

Had a quick search and we don't seem to have a thread dedicated to this lovely queen of the macabre. So with a bit of title editing - We do now.

Thanks for that. I've added it. Completes the third line. :)

Love The Long Hair of Death as well. :doh:

Ugh, too bad it is region B, i do have the KINO blu ray though, just a simple 1 disc with only the same features as the DVD. I hate how most of her releases in the US do not try to include her in the bonus features.

Nightmare Castle (1965, Mario Caiano)
Paul Mueller looks quite dashing with a whip in his hands :lol:
The best laid plans and all that .... Scientific bod catches missus at it and loses his cool somewhat ....
The best film Bava never made. :nod:

Long Hair Of Death (1964, Antonio Margheriti)

It's been a while. A cavalcade of shenanigans all centred round some poshos. To be fair, if I had been cursed by someone I had framed for murder, I'd put my hands up, as I've seen how these things usually pan out. But, that's the idolent rich for you ... so sit back and enjoy this slightly stilted (awful dubbing cough) classic. The Steele looks alternately alluring and other worldy incarnate natch.

Terror Creatures From The Grave (1965, Massimo Pupillo)

When a lawyer is sent for by ... a dead man, you know it's not a Brian Rix film :skull:
A somewhat lively bunch festoon a stately home, all waiting for the will to be read etc etc. BS plays the infanta to the hilt, so everybody better keep up!!

Shockingly dubbed YT print, so I'm only watching til the bath scene :laugh::laugh::laugh:

I really like this. Unfortunately the only print i've got of it isn't great either. (Mill Creek)

It was a bonus feature on a BD but i've no idea if it was restored to HD quality.

It's Massimo Pupillo's best film in my opinion. Although perhaps Bloody Pit of Horror isn't the greatest competition. :skull:

Just checked my copy, it's not a spotless print but the definition is good and it's a crisp print, probably the best you can hope for.

Demoncrat 2nd November 2020 01:36 AM

Noted good sir!! :ghostclap:
