Lovely Barbara Steele plays Muriel, the unfortunate wife of crazed scientist Dr. Arrowsmith (Paul Miller), who uses his wife and her lover (Rik Battaglia) in his experiments involving human blood and electricity. After electrocuting them, he drains their blood and injects it into his

faithful, aging servant, Solange (Helga Line), who is suddenly rejuvenated and beautiful. He then places the hearts of Muriel and her lover in an urn. Shocked when he learns that Muriel's fortune was left to her mentally unbalanced half-sister, Jenny (also played by Steele, this time with blonde

hair), Arrowsmith marries her and tries to drive her mad so he can collect the inheritance. However, Jenny's doctor, Derek Joyce (Lawrence Clift), refuses to declare her insane and begins to sense danger in the house. Arrowsmith, meanwhile, is preparing another blood solution to prolong Solange's

rejuvenation. When Joyce discovers the hearts in the urn, she unleashes the ghosts of Muriel and her lover, who take their revenge. While certainly not up to the level of Steele's work with the masterful Mario Bava, this is a worthwhile effort. NIGHTMARE CASTLE finds its greatest success in

showing the beautiful horror icon in as many extreme situations and personas as possible.

Coming Soon
