Paradise for Steele Fans,
This review is from: Nightmare Castle (DVD)
What a treat for the legions of Barbara Steele worshippers -- a beautiful restoration of NIGHTMARE CASTLE, with our girl in a double role and virtually every scene! The movie's never looked this good before; with the exception of two or three brief seconds, the image is immaculate. No Italian subtitles, but respectable English dubbing. And -- the disc's crowning glory -- a wonderful video interview with Steele, done for this release, where she talks in some detail about the beginnings of her career. Steele fled Hollywood, Fox, a blonde dye-job, Don Siegel, and Elvis Presley for Rome, where she fell in love with the Italian culture and the Italian film industry, making that series of horror flicks that elevated her to cult status. Full of intelligent observations about her directors and co-stars (including some information about her role that Fellini cut from CASANOVA), here's a half-hour that shows a Steele you don't know, but will love. If you think you'll like this release, trust me -- you will! Highly recommended for horror fans.
