The Castle of the Walking Dead

Die Schlangengrube und das Pendel



In 1801 Count Regula is executed for having killed 12 virgins. Forty years later Roger Monte Elise is invited by mysterious Count Regula and travels to notorious Sander Valley to learn more about his descent.

On his way he gets acquainted with Lilian of Brabant who has the same goal and preacher Fabian who seems to look upon their travel as a big joke, at least in the beginning. The ride to the Vallex is a horrible experience as is their stay in the castle. Roger and Lilian recognize that they are not here at the same time by accident, but when they finally learn the real reason why they are at castle Sandomey it is almost too late...

Interesting detail: Christopher Lee was one of the candidates to play Winnetou at first, and he had been already screen tested. Picture (Courtesy of

In this movie Lex speaks undoubtedly by himself in the English version! See soundbites!
