Verbatim Box Synopsis
A terrifying story of black magic, sorcery, devil worship, and the practise of evil satanic rites in a small coastal fishing village.

Maria, a nurse goes missing while on vacation and her sister Hilda sets out to unravel the strange mystery of her disappearance.

Hilda meets a strange character called Dr Nescu and falls in love -- Nescu always surrounds himself with beautiful young women and they all appear to be under the influence of a spell -- a strange and eerie cult force.

What evil lurks behind the huge castle gates?  -- the home of strange Dr Nescu ... A movie that will shock you as it races to its deathly, demonic climax.

Never ones to let good art go to waste, Mogul used the same design for their 1987 U.K. release of Lamberto Bava's Macabre (1980). Thanks to Diary of a Genre Addict's Andrew Hawnt for the scan!

  1. I meant to mention that some scenes in the film (certain interiors, etc.) are presented hard-matted at approx. 1.85:1. Guess since the majority is open-matte they just decided to let it run!
