Acting as his own cinematographer, Bava racked up the body count with this pleasurably convoluted, much-imitated slasher film prototype. When a countess is murdered at her bayside mansion, the crime sets off a chain reaction of killings involving seemingly any and all possible heirs, not to mention a group of teenagers who sneak onto the premises and get caught up in the mayhem.
