Intrepid reporter Alan Foster (Anthony Franciosa, TENEBRE) accepts a wager from Edgar Allan Poe (Klaus Kinski, NOSFERATU THE VAMPYRE) to spend a single night in the reputedly haunted Blackwood Castle on All Souls’ Eve. Shortly after settling into the spooky abode, the reporter meets the beautiful Elisabeth Blackwood (Michele Mercier, BLACK SABBATH), and begins to witness ghostly phenomena and visitations from beyond the grave, as an assortment of specters relive the last moments before their ghastly murders. Soon, Foster realizes that the damned spirits of Blackwood Castle require human blood to continue their unnatural existence!
One of the last Italian gothic horror films, WEB OF THE SPIDER is a color remake of 1964’s CASTLE OF BLOOD, also directed by Antonio Margheriti, under the anglicized alias Anthony M. Dawson. Previously only available in the US from a cropped television master, Garagehouse Pictures is pleased to finally offer this Euro-horror classic in HD for the first time ever, fully restored and mastered from an uncut, domestic theatrical negative in its original 2.35:1 widescreen aspect ratio!
