Description

A series of grisly murders in the remote village of Holfen convinces the locals that the town is still cursed by the spirit of a 17th century baron who maintained an elaborate torture chamber in the dungeon of his estate. Undaunted by the villagers’ superstitions, a detective (Georges Rollin) quickly focuses his investigation upon the creepy Max Von Klaus (Howard Vernon). Meanwhile, the youngest male descendant of the Von Klaus bloodline (Hugo Blanco) returns home to mourn the death of his mother, and must wrestle with his own connection to the cursed family history.

In this follow-up to his ground-breaking film The Awful Dr. Orlof, Jess Franco (Female Vampire, The Erotic Rites of Frankenstein)continue to carve out a career defined by fetishistic imagery and transgressive violence.

Cult film historian Tim Lucas (Video Watchdog) called THE SADISTIC BARON VON KLAUS’s torture sequence, “horror cinema’s first sequence of 100-proof erotic horror.”
