Strange things are going on in a beautiful and decadent Venetian villa. A young mother (BLUEBEARDs Nathalie Delon) is horrified to discover that the imaginary friend of her son (Alessandro Poggi) is the second child she lost during her last pregnancy. Haunted by guilt, plagued by freak accidents and disbelieved by her husband (DANGER DIABOLIKS John Phillip Law), she turns for help to a famous psychiatrist (BARON BLOODs Joseph Cotten)
only to learn that the ghost of her dead child is a very naughty boy.
Based on Henry James THE TURN OF THE SCREW and in the tradition of Nicolas Roegs DONT LOOK NOW and Mario Bavas SHOCK, this long-lost Italo-Gothic classic was directed by the late Marcello Aliprandi and shot in the breathtaking Villa Condulmer in Mogliano, Veneto. Painstakingly restored from the original vault negatives and available uncut for the first time in the USA, this subtle, disturbing scarefeast is driven by a sensual score from maestro Pino Donaggio (DRESSED TO KILL, THE HOWLING). And for the first time ever, cinematographer Claudio Cirillo (Ettore Scolas WE ALL LOVED EACH OTHER SO MUCH) has granted an exclusive interview, discussing the making of this ghostly gem.
