When American author Edgar Allan Poe visits London, he is approached by British journalist Alan Foster, who becomes the target of a peculiar wager. Not believing Poe’s assertion that all of his macabre stories have been based on actual experience, Foster accepts a bet from Poe and his friend Sir Thomas Blackwood that he cannot spend an entire night in the Blackwood’s haunted castle. Once in the abandoned castle, Foster discovers he is not alone. He is approached by two beautiful women, a handsome man and a doctor of metaphysics who explains they are lost souls, damned to replay the stories of their demises on the anniversary of their deaths! CASTLE OF BLOOD is the English language release of this film. Since it was shot without synchronized sound, it couldn't be characterized as "dubbed" exactly. Every edition of the film is, in essence, "dubbed" (even in Italian). This, however, is the best available version of the film and, much as we'd prefer to offer it in the native tongue of the cast and the remarkable directors, that isn't an option at this time.

Phenomenal work from two of the greatest Spaghetti Western directors. One of the leading examples in Italian Gothic Horror starring good ol' Babs.
Kinda of spooky!
nice vehicular for the ethereal beauté de Barbara Steele l'incomparable!
but who the hell was Klaus Kinski playing? had no idea I was watching him! (in fact imdb does not include his name in the credits)
Cool...I liked it!
A film with more Aka's than a fugitive; also known as Castle of Terror, The Long Night of Terror, Tombs of Horror, Coffin of Terror, Dimensions in Death, Danse Macabre, and The Haircut Horror (not really, but I'd pay to see that one). 89 minutes of Italian creepiness, starring the synchro dubbed Barbara Steele, (who cares what she sounds like?) Recommended.
