One weekend a young couple arrive by chances at Boris’s castle. Their car has broken down and Boris invites them to stay the night. The young girl is fascinated by tales of the wicked Zaroffs and asks if she can see their famous torture chamber.
Maybe now the Zaroff dreams can become reality once more?
Mondo Macabro was the first company to resurrect this film in 2003 with their DVD release of the theatrical version. Now finally on Blu-ray, and in collaboration with France’s Le Chat qui fume video label, it’s possible finally to see this rare Gallic horror film in something like its intended form. Alongside the theatrical release the disc includes over 30 minutes of trailers and alternate and deleted scenes, including the mythical “seventh victim” sequence. Most of this footage has not been seen for 45 years and is quite a revelation.
