A gruesome tale of revenge and bloodshed, from the Shock King of Staten Island, cult director, Andy Milligan. This super-cheap horror film story is set in an eerie Victorian mansion where a family has gathered for a will-reading. Three couples must spend the night there to inherit a fortune according to the will. Then they start dying one by one, as people are impaled with pitchforks, decapitated, dismembered, and have their throats hacked open with knives. There is a lot of disgusting gore including a scene where a hunchbacked cretin eats live rabbits.—IMDb

L'inventore del cinema horror moderno. Ci sono esattamente gli stessi spiegoni che trovi nel 2013 nel finale di quasi tutti gli horror, solo che questo è girato in 16 mm ed economizzando al massimo sui tagli da fare. Ad ogni modo gli attori sono mediamente più bravi di Stefano Accorsi.
