From 1967, and directed by Harald Reinl, known for his German krimi films. This movie has gone by a number of titles, but we're using the most sensationalistic!
Christopher Lee plays Count Regula, who is drawn and quartered for killing twelve virgins in his dungeon torture chamber. Thirty-five years later, he comes back to seek revenge on the daughter of his intended thirteenth victim (Karin Dor, the first German Bond Girl in "You Only Live Twice") and the son of his prosecutor (Lex Barker, who previously played Tarzan) in order to attain immortal life. While the story might be a bit derivative (think, Black Sunday) and is basically a twisted remake of "The Pit and the Pendulum," it's filled with creepy Euro Gothic trappings: flesh-eating vultures, snake pits, torture devices, surreal Hieronymus Bosch inspired horrific murals, a wall of skulls and more! This also contains a lot of great Reinl camera work throughout. Uncut, with the full nightmarish trip through the forest littered with corpses and body parts!
