    Nightmare Castle

    ★★★★

    Barbara Steele just lights up the screen in every scene she's in and she's in most of them. This is a great Italian Gothic horror tale of a mad scientist who plans to take over the fortune of his cheating wife. There are some heavy themes here and it's actually pretty extreme for the time. They filmed in an actual castle and it looks amazing. This film has a pretty long run time but there is so much interesting stuff…

Milla is fantastic in the role she was born to play. She lights up the screen in every scene she appears. Alice is an awesome character. I loved the new powers etc. The birds scene was excellent! I think maybe I missed it having a…
