DVD Description

A castle named the Monserrat Mansion forms the foreboding backdrop to this creepy chiller from legendary horror maestro Jess Franco. Cristina Reiner arrives to witness the reading of her fathers will, only to discover that the rest of her family are already there, awaiting the impending death of Cristina's stepmother. The creepy family members soon appear to have an ulterior motive for their presence, a fact confirmed by the ghost of Cristina's father who appears when death finally catches up with the ailing stepmother. Her attempt to escape the house, and her evil relatives, provide some ghoulish delights in this cult classic.
