"Your blood will be our life!"

Castle of Blood (aka Danse Macabre) is a splendid piece of classic horror. It is filled with perfect atmosphere and sound, appropriate for such a film. The wonderful Barbara Steele is fantastic in her part as Elizabeth Blackwood. This film has many lengthy sequences without dialogue featuring only spooky sound and a menacing mood, which is one of the great aspects of gothic horror cinema. In addition to a shirtless stud, Castle of Blood has a handful of characters one of them being Poe. He bookends the film. A definite classic, director Antonio Margheriti was clearly a genius.
