Castle of Blood

Synopsis: A writer accepts a bet that he cannot spend the night alone in a haunted castle on All Soul's Eve. Once night falls at the castle, several who had been murdered therein return to life, reliving their deaths and seeking to kill the writer for his blood in a vain attempt to stay alive beyond that one night. Barbara Steele, as one of the living dead, tries to aid his escape from the castle.

for a moment at my newspaper?

Od course.

Have you ever tried writing

stories based on reality?


always voyages beyond,

outside, or beneath

all the forms established

by society or by the mind,

to the abysses, to the

bottom of the sea, to the South Pole.

Of all melancholy topics, what,

according to the

universal understanding of mankind,

is the most melancholy?

Death is the obvious reply.

And when is this most melancholy of topics

most poetical? When it most closely

allies itself to Beauty.

The death then of a beautiful woman

is unquestionably

the most poetical topic in the world.

We've arrived.

You can still withdraw

and return with us.

Your 10 is too tempting.

- Think carefully.

- Thanks for the interview,

and I hope Lord Thomas's ghosts

will let me publish it.

We'll come back at dawn.

Good luck.

Good luck, my young friend.

You'll find torches

under the staircase.

Don't let yourself be influenced

by this atmosphere.

All this is absurd.

These suspicious noises,

these strange apparitions

must have a rational explanation!

To doubt, even if only for a second,

means to be afraid.

It's an optical illusion.

It's very simple.

It's just an optical illusion.

Did my brother send you?

If your brother is

Lord Thomas Blackwood, then yes.

Your brother told me

that the castle was unoccupied.

Yes, I know what he says.

- To him, I'm dead.

He refuses to see me

ever since I left

his world

to seek happiness here.

Haven't you been able to persuade him

to reconcile with you?

No, I've stayed alone.

Maybe it's better

that I go away.

Are you afraid of me?

No, but if had known,

I wouldn't have accepted this wager.

Of course...

The famous wager that my brother

offers each year

in order to give me company
