Bloody Pit of Horror (1965)
Director: Massimo Pupillo
Main Stars: Mickey Hargitay, Walter Brandi, Ralph Zucker, Barbara Nelli, Moa Tahi, Rita Klein, Femi Benussi, Luisa Baratto
Storyline: A photographer and some models break into a old castle for photoshoot’s for horror novels which just happens to be the ruins of a great 17th century executioner.
Review (Spoils): The storyline says it all. We have a cheesy photographer who gets his male models to break into a castle to do some covers for horror novels. Once one of the guys scale the wall and let them in (including the sexy models) we have a bunch of people roaming around a castle. We have people in skeleton outfits, chezzy spiders, torture equipment, sexy ladies of the 60s and a nicely oiled up shirtless executioner who wears red satin. The film is pretty much that we have no blood at all and the acting is painful.
Rating: From the title alone and the references in the history of horror and Gwar I was expecting a classic B film. Nawwww all we got here is just B. The film was painful in a way to watch and the crimson executioner just was not scary at all. For a horror film of this era and from Italy I was expecting a lot more. Pretty painful…..overall.
Maybe I need to re-watch it as I just did not get it.
