Baron Blood (Gli Orrori del Castello di Norimberga)
This above-average horror film concerns a young couple (Antonio Cantafora, Elke Sommer) who manage to revive a cruel sorceror-Baron (Joseph Cotten) from the 1500s.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The trite plot drags on forever."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"Distinctive Bava look, distinctive incoherent plot. How did Joseph Cotten come to this?"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Bava uses his trademark brilliant color cinematography to amazing effect within the huge, old castle, though the movie as a whole is a shade or two less effective than the similar Kill, Baby... Kill! (1966)."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"... disappointing."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
