A witch rises from the dead to seek vengeance on those who put her to death in an iron maiden torture device.
Old-fashioned horror movie which has the distinction of being the first of a long line of Italian productions. Aside from that, it isn't particularly memorable.
Not to be confused with the 1977 film Black Sunday.
Did You Know:
Mario Bava and Barbara Steele had a difficult working relationship. Steele has since admitted that she was difficult due to her inexperience and her inability to understand Italian.
