Iconic British-born queen of Gothic horror Barbara Steele (Mario Bava's Black Sunday) is mesmerizing in this surreal, atmospheric chiller directed by Italian dark fantasy filmmaker Antonio Margheriti (Castle of Blood, Invasion of the Flesh Hunters). Essaying a dual role, Steele stars as an unlawfully-executed woman's doomed daughter whose own murder won't stop her from fulfilling her mother's curse upon a despicable nobleman and his family, even from beyond the grave. Filled with shuddery, stark black and white imagery, bursts of operatic violence and featuring a thundering score by Carlo Rustichelli (Blood and Black Lace, The Whip and the Body), THE LONG HAIR OF DEATH stands as one of the finest European horror films of the 1960s.
