The father of the Italian horror, Mario Bava, directs this gothic horror fantasy at the peak of his cinematographic prowess. With its captivating lighting schemes, ghostly death sequences and lurid compositions it`s no wonder why Bava`s most fetishistic film attained its cult status. Kurt Menliff (Christopher Lee) has returned to his father`s castle only to find that the servant woman (Harriet Medin) has developed an inexplicable fondness for a glass container with a dagger inside. Believing that Kurt is responsible for her daughter`s death, she longs for him to suffer like she did for his sadistic pleasure. Meanwhile, Kurt`s passion for sadism knows no borders as he subjects his sister (Daliah Lavi) to a beating with his horse`s whip. As she lies on the beach, clothes-torn and wailing with masochistic pleasure, the terrified horse tries to avoid the incoming tide. A true masterpiece of Italian horror, The Whip and the Body is superbly crafted rendition of a D.H. Lawrence tale of revenge and familial responsibility. Review The Whip and the Body is the latest addition to Kino Classic`s Bava collection, with a Blu-ray release that really brings the rich visuals to life. --iHorror.com See all Product Description Running Time: 92 minutes Region: All Regions Subtitles: English Release Date: 3 Nov. 2014
