Whip and the Body

In the 19th century, a sadistic nobleman terrorises the members of his family. He is found dead, but his ghost soon returns to haunt the residents of his castle. Bava creates an unrelentingly, creepy tale of obsession and perversion, which is a riff on Wuthering Heights. Featuring excellent direction, brilliantly-composed photography and a convincingly-cruel performance from Lee.
