Do you enjoy old-fashioned B&W horror flicks which are genuinely weird and creepy, and which don’t rely on tons of violence and gore to set their tone?
Well, we’ve got a neat and rare picture for you.
This little-known but very memorable Gothic thriller is about an odd and sinister man named Count Drago who has found the secret to preserving life instantly.
Drago has filled his remote castle with all sorts of examples of this bizarre taxidermy. Horror icon Lee (THE LORD OF THE RINGS SAGA, DRACULA, THE WICKER MAN, etc…) inhabits the title role with relish as he plays host to (and scares the Jeebus out of) a group of roving vaudevillian entertainers who make the mistake of stopping at his castle seeking shelter during a long horse-and-carriage ride.
CASTLE OF THE LIVING DEAD is quite an atmospheric film with some very good chase scenes through dark corridors and a graveyard. It’s also notable as the big-screen debut of an incredibly young DONALD SUTHERLAND in not one, but TWO roles!
Also, there are NO zombies in this movie. It was made four years prior to George A. Romero’s NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, which meant that phrase had not yet been enshrined as “official” lingo for flesh-eating ghouls.
Back in 1964, it could mean all kinds of creepy stuff…
